DNSSEC implementation project

 

Information and Educational Technology implemented DNSSEC at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9, 2013.

  • All campus departmental VLAN contacts, departmental firewall administrators, and DNS subdomain server administrators need to test their readiness to accept DNSSEC traffic, and make changes as necessary.
  • Please prepare well in advance of July to allow adequate time for testing:
    1. Run the tests - instructions are available for DNS subdomain owners and departmental VLAN firewall admins/owners
    2. If you have a private VLAN with NAT’ing, be sure to test that VLAN too
    3. Send results to DNSSEC@ucdavis.edu
  • This announcement, posted on the tsp-info listserv, summarizes the DNSSEC implementation project, including the impact of the change, key dates, and instructions for campus technologists.
  • For more information on DNSSEC please visit the KB Article "DNSSEC instructions for administrators of VLAN firewalls"
  • If units need help to test or configure their VLAN firewall, IT Professional Services (ITPS) offers computer and network consulting services to campus departments on a fee basis and can provide support for VLAN firewalls. For additional information, see http://itps.ucdavis.edu or contact 530-757-8907.
