Several people have asked where to get the public key for our root zone to properly enable dnssec, so I threw this together...<tld><tld>

For the root zone, use a single period (.) or leave the tld blank. Note if you use the IP address, the SSL cert won't be valid, but that method should prevent any problems from dns hijacking.

This will show the public keys for any opennic TLD that has a dnssec record in our root zone, including the root itself. Due to overlap between old keys expiring and new ones being generate, some TLDs may show multiple records of each type... This is normal and all of the keys shown are valid at the time the query was made.

The TLDs which currently have dnssec records are:
root (.), chan, dyn, free, geek, gopher, indy, libre, o, opennic.glue, oss, parody, pirate

The information here can be verified against a simple dig command, and the records should match what you see on the API page.
# dig DNSKEY <tld>
