Attendees should have some experience of running a BIND9 name server and be

files. We will discuss two quite different brands of name server for serving 
DNSSEC: BIND9 and PowerDNS. 
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops (Unix/Linux recommended, 
but Windows OK) so that they can follow the practical exercises. We will set 
up an authoritative DNSSEC-signed zone and will configure an Unbound caching 
server to validate DNS queries.
