    No one in China should have a key. I like the idea of Burkina Faso and Trinidad & Tobago. The China and U.S.A. keyholders should probably be moved to more stable less corrupt countries like Botswana, Uruguay, or Australia.

  • Kristopher Noronha
    Kristopher Noronha4 ditë më parë

    DNS is cached. so the Internet would still run for a few hours/days, and as long as none of the servers in the chain of trust to ICANN are compromised, you can still continue to use it. the only problem is when something changes/is compromised, nobody can verify which DNS entry is accurate. in fact, you can even issue new domains etc as long as the TLD is still trusted.

They don’t “hold the keys to the internet” they hold the keys to root name DNS and DNSSEC so if they were to shut it down yes it would be a great pain to have to type in IP adresses instead of names the internet wouldn’t mysteriously vanish all of a sudden

Or is this video the realm flailing silliness at me bc I have the only key and I use it every time I'm not viewing the internet.
