[announcement] ICANN commissioned a technical study into the security and stability implications of using the Domain Name System (DNS) DNAME Resource Record [RFC2672] in the root zone of the DNS. Testing was specified to be carried out in a captive lab environment which provided a functional replica of certain components of the public DNS. The results of that testing are presented in this report for the information of the wider DNS technical community. This report found no failure in resolution nor in the ability to perform DNSSEC validation when DNAME was used in the root zone to provide isomorphism between two top-level domains (TLD), i.e. when one TLD was provisioned as a DNAME, compared to being provisioned as a distinct delegation. A variety of DNS software was tested as part of this study. The use of DNAME in provisioning isomorphic domains is a candidate mechanism f...
