DNSSEC algorithm roll of the zones .no and .sj. https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/dnssec-algoritmerullering-av-sonene-no-og-sj/ Tue, 14 Dec 2021 09:50:47 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=18180 In January next year, Norid will perform a DNSSEC algorithm roll on the zones .no and .sj. During the roll, the DNSSEC keys in the zones (KSK and ZSK) will be changed from algorithm 8, RSASHA256, to algorithm 13, ECDSAP256SHA256.

Only the keys for our own zone data, and the signatures for these will be changed. The change will therefore not have any direct consequences for the delegated domains, and no actions needed to be done on these.

During the roll, the zones will temporarily have a double set of KSK and ZSK keys, and all the zone data will have a double set of signatures for the two keys. Because of this, the data in the .no zone will be bigger than normal, but this is not expected to be significant for resolver caches or DNS traffic.

We plan to start the roll on January 5th. The roll will go on for about 20 days.

You shall no longer make prepayments to your balance.

The final cash invoice, which shows how much you have used of your balance in October, will be sent out today, 1 November 2021.

Transactions that cost money (new and extended domain name subscriptions), will from now on be invoiced on the first working day each month. The first invoice in the new scheme will be issued on 1 December 2021. This invoice will consist of all new and extended domain name subscriptions made in November.

Increased security with new registrar agreement https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/okt-sikkerhet-med-ny-forhandleravtale/ Fri, 15 Oct 2021 08:46:26 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=18060 There were 335 registrars in total when the process of a new registrar agreement began in June 2021. After the deadline for entering into the new agreement expired at the end of August, 268 registrars - eight out of ten - had chosen to continue the business with Norid.

The reduction in the number of registrars has not led to major changes in the distribution of market shares in the total market. When it comes to the markets for the largest companies in Norway or the most trafficked websites, the market distribution is identical in June and September.

– Today we have fewer registrars than before this shift, but can state that the competition between registrars within different customer segments still works, and that the registrars in total provide a broad and varied offer to customers, says Hilde Thunem, Managing Director in Norid.

Update of the test system 30 September 2021 https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/oppdatering-av-testsystemet-30-september-2021/ Wed, 29 Sep 2021 08:15:00 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=18022 Due to the change of our invoicing routine, the test system for the registrar web and EPP will be updated on Thursday 30 September 2021.

The following changes will be implemented:

  • Response messages in the EPP channel and emails related to your balance will be irrelevant and thus removed
  • Parameters and information related to prepayments and balance will be irrelevant and thus removed from the registrar web

The changes will take place between 8 am and 10 am, and the test system will be down for a few minutes during the update.

Norid will change the invoicing routine https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/norid-gar-over-til-etterskuddsfakturering/ Mon, 13 Sep 2021 10:41:51 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=17989 Starting in November 2021 we will change our invoicing routine so that you pay for transactions after they have been made. This means that we will no longer require that registrars make prepayments.

After the transition, fees for all new and extended domain name subscriptions during a calendar month will be included on an invoice that is sent out on the first working day of the following month.

Time schedule for the transition

The transition to the new payment routine will happen on 1 November 2021. This means that the last cash invoice will be issued on 1 November 2021. On the same date the registry system will be updated so that payment for transactions that cost money are no longer drawn from your balance, but are instead counted for invoicing the following month.

The first invoice in the new scheme will be issued on 1 December 2021. This invoice will consist of all new and extended domain name subscriptions for November.

At the same time as we change our payment routine, we will also change our accountancy firm. This means that after we have sent out the last cash invoice, all our invoices will be sent from a new accounting system. This should not have any consequences for you, but the invoices will look a bit different.

Changes in the registry system

The transition to this new payment routine will require some changes in the registry system:

  • Response messages in the EPP channel and emails related to your balance will be irrelevant and thus removed
  • Parameters and information related to prepayments and balance will be irrelevant and thus removed from the registrar web

The test system will be updated with the changes well before the production system. Information about the date for this will be sent out as soon as it is decided.

Return of your remaining balance

After the last cash invoice has been sent out, we will return your remaining balance. This will be done in November. The amount will be paid out to the bank account number registered on the registrar web under the tab "Accounting". It is therefore important that this bank account number is correct.

Background for changing the payment routine

The current payment routine with prepayments has caused some challenges among the registrars as well as for Norid. We have heard from some registrars that prepayments makes the accounting difficult and time consuming to handle. The close connection between the registration of payments and access to do transactions that cost money, also means that the model is vulnerable to delays in the registration of payments. We think that a the described change of routine will eliminate these challenges.

More information about terms of payment and the new payment routine will be sent out closer to the transition.

The registrar web will be down for a few minutes during the update.

There will be a few changes that will be visible to the registrars, those are:

  • In the Summary tab: In the top 'Status data' block, a new information line which shows the number and percentage of signed domains is added.
  • In the Daily tab: The domain list has changed content somewhat. New header information about the number of signed domains has been added. Information in the header about paper based declarations has been removed. In addition, the authInfo column has been removed, as it no longer displays any useful information. Registrars who have a script that processes the domain list may need to adjust the program a bit.

Here you can find information about the steps that have to be completed

It is also important that you let us know by sending an email to info@norid.no as soon as you have completed all the steps. The agreement will become effective when Norid has signed the agreement.

If the new agreement between you and Norid has not become effective by 18 August 2021, you are no longer a registrar for Norid, and you will lose access to Norid's systems.

If you are unsure whether the new registrar agreement is in effect for you, you can check if you are listed on the list of registrars that have entered into the new agreement.

This means that 16 percent of the domain names have a registrar that has entered into the new agreement.

Please note that it is not enough to sign the new agreement, you must also do some other preparatory work. One of the things you must do is to register a primary contact, and the primary contact must take the registrar test.

This means that some terms for registrars will be removed from the domain name policy because they are covered in the new registrar agreement. The Applicant's declaration will be updated as a part of this.

In order to make the separation between the domain subscription terms and the registrar terms and conditions clearer, we will update the subscription terms in the domain name policy for Norwegian domain names after the transition period for the new registrar agreement is over. You can read the details about the changes here. You can read the details here.

Applicant's declaration (Appendix G) update

For you as a registrar there is one change that is especially important to note: Appendix G: Applicant's declaration gets an update. This means that the registrars that have the declaration built into their own systems must update these. The new Applicant's declaration

  • steps up to version number v3.2 2021-08-24
  • takes effect on 24 August 2021 (Norid's Applicant declaration tool gets an update at that time)
  • works in parallell with the current version v3.1 2019-12-10 until 28 September

Starting on 28 September 2021 the registry system will only accept version v3.2.

You can already test the new Applicant's declaration in Norid's test system. Updated specifications for the Applicant's declaration: Requirement specification for the applicant’s declaration from 2021-08-24.

We have gone through the input and made some adjustments. The final text is now ready. The transition to the new agreement will start on 15 June 2021.

We want to thank the registrars who took the time to read and comment on the text draft. We have made a couple of small adjustments in order to make some of the terms clearer and easier to interpret, as well as some minor changes to the structure.

The most important material changes are that the registrars' duty to notify Norid if they discover discrepancies in Norids systems, will be limited to only apply for major incidents. We also reduce what is considered to be material breach of the agreement.

You can read the final agreement text here

The transition to the new agreement starts on 15 June. On that date the agreement will be sent to all registrars to be signed. Notice of transition to a new agreement will be sent to all registrars by email and letter at the same time.

The proposed text for a new registrar agreement was published with a request for input from the registrars, and the deadline was reached on 21 May. The next step is to finalise the new agreement and send it to the registrars for signing. A termination of the current agreement will be sent at the same time.

All registrars are required to keep their contact information updated at all times. However, it is now extra important that you all log into the registrar web and check that your registered contact information is correct so that you the letter and email concerning the new agreement will reach you. The contact information must be updated by Friday 4 June 2021.

You can find your registered contact information under the tab Organizational on the registrar web. It is especially important that the following contact information is correct:

  • postal address and email address for the organization (Organization name)
  • the name and email address for your legal contact (Legal contact name)

Logging into test systems

At the same time we recommend that you make sure that you are able to log into the test systems for the registrar web and EPP. This is important because access to the test systems will be necessary in order to continue as a registrar under the new agreement. You will need access to both of your test accounts.

ICANN holds a workshop on 3 March – “ICANN and its technical mission” https://teknisk.norid.no/en/registrar/nytt/icann-holder-workshop-3-mars-icann-and-its-technical-mission/ Tue, 09 Feb 2021 13:57:15 +0000 https://teknisk.norid.no/?p=16317 Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) invites to a digital workshop on 3 March at 2–5 hrs pm (CET). The workshop is aimed at techies who want more information about how the upper level of DNS is handled. 

As the international administrator of the top-level domains ICANN makes the guidelines for allocation and registration of those. At this workshop they will inform about their work as regards DNSSEC signing and how the root zone is run. ICANN gather various actors to make overall rules for generic top-level domains (such as .com, .org or .shop). The workshop will go through some of ICANN's initiativs for these top-level domains.

ICANN consider this workshop to be useful both for those with former experience with ICANN and for new actors in the business. 

Register for the workshop: https://features.icann.org/event/icann-organization/nordic-region-workshop-icann-and-its-technical-mission 

For country-code top-level domains (such as .no eller .se) guidelines and terms are set in each specific country. Norid runs the Norwegian top-level domains and comply with the constraint given by the Norwegian domain name regulations. Norid and Norwegian authorities participate to ICANN processes where it is considered relevant for Norwegian interests.

This website is a portal to open technical information aimed at domain name providers as well other technical specialists, like ISPs, developers, etc.

The further plan is to do a revamp of the EPP client and the provider web (login part) to make those tools more up to date and to offer more relevant data to the domain providers

We have done a total revamp of the content from the former web pages, and for most pages it has been impossible to redirect old URLs. We are sorry to cause extra work because of this.

We are happy to receive feedback one way or the other, and please let us know if something does not work as expected.

The new technical website will be made available on /en/ during the working hours on Wednesday.
