ICANN Announces DNSSEC Root KSK Rollover Design Team

By Dan YorkDirector, Web Strategy & Project Lead, Open Standards Everywhere

ICANN.jpgAfter soliciting statements of interest back in December, ICANN announced this week the people who had been selected for the DNSSEC Root Key Signing Key (KSK) Rollover Design Team. They are:

  • Joe Abley, Snake Hill Labs/DyN, CA
  • Jaap Akkerhuis, NLNetLabs, NL
  • John Dickinson, Sinodun Internet Technologies, UK
  • Geoff Huston, APNIC, AU
  • Ondrej Sury, CZ.NIC, CZ
  • Paul Wouters, No Hats/Red Hat, NL
  • Yoshiro Yoneya, JPRS, JP

We’ve written before about how important we believe the rollover of the Root KSK of DNSSEC is, and we are pleased to see this next step in the process.  All of the people selected have been extremely involved in the DNS / DNSSEC community for many years and have contributed in many ways to the ongoing deployment of DNSSEC.

We look forward to hearing the next steps taken by this team to move forward on rolling the Root KSK.  I suspect there will be some discussion at ICANN 52 next week in Singapore, but I also expect much more to happen after that event in the months ahead.

P.S. If you want to get started with DNSSEC, please visit our Start Here page to begin!
