graychase writes “A major milestone is reached as the first major top-level domain (.org) is now secured with DNSSEC. The expense to .org for implementing DNSSEC on its infrastructure and operations has not been a small one. While specific figures as to the cost of DNSSEC implementation haven’t been released, Afilias, which is the technical operator of the .org registry, told InternetNews.com in 2009 that the DNSSEC implementation would be a multi-million dollar effort. The cost isn’t going to be passed on by .org to domain registrars. The move toward securing the .org registry with DNS security started back in September 2008, following the Kaminsky DNS flaw disclosure.”
