EPP Key relay

A team of technical experts has been working to standardise a secure domain name transfer protocol for DNSSEC. The result is the Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) key relay. In EPP key relay, the registry plays a pivotal role. DNSSEC key material is communicated from the receiving DNS operator to the releasing DNS operator via the registry, meaning that the transfer can be fully secured.

The Internet Society is an independent, international, non-profit organisation with a pioneering global role in the field of internet-related standards, education and governance. ISOC.nl is its Dutch division. More information is available on ISOC.nl .
