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.
