[Cerowrt-devel] Wondering what dns lookups should be returning on local files...

I was accessing a local file via a file URL using google-chrome:

I run the google-chome dnssec validator routinely. (found at:

It gives me a cheery "green" key icon on the local file, as one would hope.

It looks like it tried to validate "home" (though this may be an artifact
of chome), and returned:

*home**Secured by DNSSEC*

Nonexistence of the domain name home
was validated by DNSSEC.

The parent domain is secured by DNSSEC, thus it was possible to
successfully verify nonexistence of this domain name.

So this may be perfectly fine and expected; could be a google chome ism,
or is just an artifact of the validator plug-in.

But being paranoid, I thought I should report it and figure out where a
report should go (because, at best, the message is somewhat misleading).
