DNSSEC is trying to be deployed everywhere. Many are afraid of DNSSEC deployment, which are too heavy to be deployed. There is a huge gap between the resources we need to deploy DNSSEC and the benefits or security we can get from the DNSSEC. This document proposes a lightweight DNSSEC mechanism to make the DNSSEC to be deployed easily while getting the similar security with the heavy DNSSEC.
