TCR or Trusted Community Representative is a term given by ICANN to those who hold the keys to DNSSEC of Internet. Every TCR has been given a part of the master key. 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. There are twenty-one TCRs selected by ICANN around the globe.[1] The key holders are mainly selected from the following seven territories:

  • Britain
  • US
  • Burkina Faso
  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • Canada
  • China
  • Czech Republic.
