BIND 9 and DNSSEC - Webinar Series


BIND 9 has a complete implementation of the DNSSEC protocols, and DNSSEC validation is enabled by default in the newest versions of BIND. If you are a BIND administrator and are NOT using DNSSEC today because you are not sure how to set it up or maintain it, this webinar series is for you.

This series of 10 lectures will teach you everything you need to know to implement DNSSEC on both Authoritative and Resolver systems using BIND. Each lecture will be approximately an hour long. The live webinars will be on Wednesdays at the same time each week (18:00 UTC), beginning February 5th and continuing through April 15th, with no session on March 25th. Register once for the series, and attend when you can: recordings will be posted of each session so you can catch up on any you miss. And did we mention it’s free?
