Similarly, the Public Interest Registry has seen a minority of .org Web sites sign their domains using DNSSEC. Among the handful of early adopters are Comcast, which uses DNSSEC to sign its www.comcast.org, www.fandangoticket.org, www.xfiniti.org and www.tvplanner.org Web sites.
"We have had 34 registrars pass operational tests and evaluation to provide DNSSEC," says PIR CEO Brian Cute. "We think this is an important development. This is a chain of trust, including registries, registrars and end users. We are encouraged by the registrar take-up of DNSSEC. . . Having .com signed should help with accelerating this trend."
