EPP Keyrelay about to become a global Internet standard:
SIDN has been using the first version of key relay since July 2013. We introduced it mainly to demonstrate that the system worked . Since then, there has been a lot of discussion within the IETF regarding the standard's XML structure, which has been revised in line with the workgroup's wishes. SIDN is waiting for the definitive internet standard to be published before amending its own implementation, since that will require a DRS EPP interface update. Once our implementation has been harmonised with the finalised standard, it will be up to the registrars to start using secure the transfer mechanism. As DNSSEC validating resolvers enter increasingly widespread use, being able to transfer domain names securely is rapidly becoming a priority. SIDN will be working with the Registrars' Association to identify ways of encouraging adoption.
