    SIDN acts as intermediary in the transfer of DNSSEC-enabled domains

    Autumn 2012 At present, the security of a DNSSEC-enabled .nl domain has to be disabled before it can be transferred from one registrar to another. That will soon cease to be an option: the security of a transferred domain will always have to remain effective while a transfer is in progress. Technically speaking, continuous security is perfectly viable, but it will require administrative coordination between the releasing registrar and the receiving registrar.

Technically speaking, the transfer of DNSSEC-enabled domains is perfectly viable, but it will require administrative coordination between the releasing registrar and the receiving registrar. At the moment, there are two methods in circulation <> for transferring a domain from one DNS operator to another: the IETF method and the ICANN method.
