Paul Kane is chief executive of the British technology firm CommunityDNS[1] and is one of seven people entrusted with a credit card like key to restart portions of the World Wide Web or internet which are secured with DNSSEC, after a catastrophic event such as a major security breach or terrorist attack.[1] If such a situation arises, five keyholders will travel to the United States to meet up and restart the DNSSEC system.[2]
