The Secure Naming Infrastructure Pilot (SNIP) was a joint project involving NIST, SPARTA Inc, and the Dept. of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate. The goal was to provide a test domain for participants to use and become familiar with the DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) and how they will affect their DNS operations.
The SNIP is currently closed to new registrations. Anyone wishing to get a sub-domain for testing DNSSEC may go to the High Assurance Domain project testbed which can serve the same purpose. The DNSOPS website will remain operational to provide assistance to current delegation holders as well as provide assistance and information to USG DNS administrators.
DNSSEC-Tools A set of administrator tools and end user plug-ins that use DNSSEC (Developed by Sparta Inc.)
Questions or comments should be sent to the SNIP admin
