Every Each active TCR has been given a part of credentials that are used to interact with devices that contain the master Key during keysigning ceremonies. The first key signing ceremony took place on 16th June 2010. [[ICANN]] has taken this decision to avoid any terrorist attack or any other catastrophic event on the Internet. If it ever happened, the TCRs will meet at one place, generate a master key and will reboot the [[DNS]]. They they are nt rebooting the entire Internet, as many news outlets have stated, but rather rebooting the DNSSEC protocols, implemented in 2010, that protect the DNSnormally conducted four times a year.<ref>[ Internet Keyholders are Insurance against Cyber-Attack,]</ref> There are twenty-one TCRs selected by [[ICANN]] around the globe.<ref>[ Root-DNSSEC]</ref><ref>[ eWeekEurope]</ref>
