Google Online Security Blog: Distrust of the Symantec PKI: Immediate action needed by site operators
“We previously announced plans to deprecate Chrome’s trust in the Symantec certificate authority (including Symantec-owned brands like Thawte, VeriSign, Equifax, GeoTrust, and RapidSSL). This post outlines how site operators can determine if they’re affected by this deprecation, and if so, what needs to be done and by when. Failure to replace these certificates will result in site breakage in upcoming versions of major browsers, including Chrome.”

Unbound is a validating, recursive, and caching DNS resolver. The C implementation of Unbound is developed and maintained by NLnet Labs. It is based on ideas and algorithms taken from a java prototype developed by Verisign labs, Nominet, Kirei and Unbound is designed as a set of modular components, so that also DNSSEC (secure DNS) validation and stub-resolvers (that do not run as a server, but are linked into an application) are easily possible. The source code is under a BSD License.

bitly blog - bitly and Verisign
We took that as a great compliment — over the last three years, bitly links really have become a ubiquitous part of the web.  A recent Microsoft Research report even claims that short links can account for as much as 1% of the new URLs created on any given day. 

With that kind of scale comes a great responsibility in terms of technical reliability and redundancy. Which is why we’re pleased to announce a new agreement with Verisign, which operates two of the Internet’s root nameservers and much of the web’s DNS infrastructure. If there’s a single company that qualifies as the steward of the Internet, it’s Verisign.

Verisign and bitly already work in tandem nearly every time a short URL is clicked. On any given day, bitly translates hundreds of millions of short URLs into standard web addresses; last month alone, we handled 8 billion such redirects. Verisign takes those long URLs and translates them into IP addresses, resolving over a trillion monthly DNS queries, including every URL hosted on a .com, .net or .gov domain. 

These two steps constitute the core infrastructure of the social web, and bitly’s relationship with Verisign aims to make them completely reliable and blazingly fast.

june 2013 by silvertje Plans to Strengthen the Skeleton of the Social Web With Verisign Partnership – ReadWrite
Like the Web itself, baked into the heart of much of our social experience is the good, old fashioned hyperlink. The only difference is that the social Web requires shorter links, which simplifies them visually, but adds another technical layer between users and the content they're trying to access. redirects as many as 8 billion of those links in a given month. To help further strengthen the reliability of its shortened URLs, is going right to the root of the Web's infrastructure.

The company recently announced a partnership with Verisign, a key player in that infrastructure which oversees two of the Internet's thirteen root nameservers, serves as the registry operator for the .com and .net top-level domains, and has a vital role in the Internet's DNS architecture.

Verisign is already resolving billions of DNS queries, translating long URLs into the IP addresses where sites actually live. Now, is going to move its main data center onto Verisign's architecture, a move that the URL-shorterning service promises will provide "completely reliable and blazingly fast" short URL redirects.

june 2013 by silvertje Partners With Verisign To Answer The Internet’s Big Questions | Betabeat
Data scientists from both companies will work together to answer the sort of metaphysical puzzlers that were once the reserved for astrophysicists. “Scientists at both companies are already poring over volumes of DNS resolution data–data that will help us answer fundamental (and fundamentally awesome) questions like: “what actually are the most popular websites on the internet?” and “just how big is the internet, anyhow?”

The basic takeaway: Verisign gets a foot in the burgeoning world of short links, which sit outside their traditional expertise. gets closer to the DNS resolution data.
