End of Life Notice for Interim Trust Anchor Repository (ITAR)

Since the beginning of 2009, ICANN has operated a service known as the Interim Trust Anchor Repository (ITAR). This allowed top-level domain operators who use DNSSEC to publish their trust anchor in absence of a signed DNS root zone. On 15 July 2010, the DNS root zone was signed, and in the following months TLD operators have transitioned to using it. With the last remaining TLDs transitioning to the signed root zone, the ITAR is no longer required.

A memorial service is scheduled to be held after 18 November (the expected date for existing listings to be removed).  See the ICANN announcement for further details.
