EPP key relay: the secure transfer process for DNSSEC-protected domain names

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.
