Please Take This DNSSEC Survey To Help Understanding of Value, Obstacles, Priorities

DNSSEC badgeDo you have a few minutes to answer a 12 question survey about your views on DNSSEC?  Tim Rooney over at BT Diamond IP has launched a survey to try to gather data around viewpoints on DNSSEC deployment. As Tim says in his blog post announcing the survey:

BT Diamond IP is sponsoring a DNSSEC survey to gather input from DNS and network administrators regarding their opinions about the value of DNSSEC, potential obstacles to implementation, and relative priority of deployment. And you are hereby invited to participate! The survey consists of twelve questions plus a thirteenth if you’d like to enter your contact information to be entered for a drawing for a $100 VISA gift card. The survey will remain open through November 3, 2014, after which we will compile the results and publish a free survey report.

I’ve taken the survey myself and agree that it would be useful to have data around the different questions asked.  Obviously this is a “self-selected” survey in the sense that only people who learn about it will fill out the survey… and odds are that they will probably learn about it through channels like this one (our blog) where they might already be interested in DNSSEC.

Still, I think the results will be helpful in gaining some understanding of what people are thinking about with regard to DNSSEC deployment.

If you have a few minutes, please take the survey.

And yes, obviously BT Diamond IP is not doing this entirely altruistically… they do hope to gain some leads for their own business… but if you don’t want to give them your contact information simply do not fill out the 13th optional question (and I didn’t).  The overall statistics could be quite helpful!

And if you want to get started deploying DNSSEC today, please visit our Start Here page to find resources targeted at your type of organization or role.

UPDATE 17 Dec 2014 The survey results have been released.
