On the morning of August 14, a relatively small number of networks
may have experienced an operational disruption related to the signing
of the .gov zone.  In preparation for a previously announced algorithm
rollover, a software defect resulted in publishing the .gov zone
signed only with DNSSEC algorithm 8 keys rather than with both
algorithm 7 and 8.  As a result .gov name resolution may have failed
for validating recursive name servers.  Upon discovery of the issue,
Verisign took prompt action to restore the valid zone.

Verisign plans to proceed with the previously announced .gov algorithm
rollover at the end of the month with the zone being signed with
both algorithms for a period of approximately 10 days.
