            DNSSEC Trust Anchor Publication for the Root Zone


   The root zone of the Domain Name System (DNS) has been    cryptographically signed using DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC).

   In order to obtain secure answers from the root zone of the DNS using    DNSSEC, a client must configure a suitable trust anchor.  This    document describes the format and publication mechanisms IANA has    used to distribute the DNSSEC trust anchors.
