Suzanne Woolf. Anycasting root servers. AAAA records. Input on renumbering ofo B.root-servers.net. No objections raised. Renumbering in the next few months. GAC named liaison to RSSAC.See www.root-servers.org for public information about committee’s work.Cerf asks about discussions re improving security of root system information by using DNSSEC. Answer: Active discussion. Not concern directly for committee, not yet ready for deployment. Waiting on IETF standardization. IETF is getting close, making progress, but not ready yet.Cerf: AAAA records significant introduction. Test environment for such things? RSSAC does not operate test environment, but some participants do. RIRs and several root name server operators do participate in experimental activities of that kind. Have input.
