Document Quality

To assess the applicability and usefulness of the document, a survey about DNSSEC policy and practice statements was conducted by the authors amongst members of CENTR (Council of European National  Top Level Domain Registries). Among the questions were some asking whether they had heard about draft-ietf-dnsop-dnssec-dps-framework (then at version -03).

Of the 19 respondents, 17 had heard about the draft and 13 had used it as a check list of DNSSEC readiness and/or an outline to create such a document.
