Deadline TODAY (23:59 UTC) to submit comments to ICANN on 2018 DNSSEC Root KSK Rollover Plan

By Dan YorkDirector of Web Strategy

Do you believe ICANN should go ahead with the plan to roll the Root Key Signing Key (KSK) on 11 October 2018? If so (or if not), the deadline for public comment is TODAY, 2 April 2018, at 23:59 UTC. That’s about 9.5 hours from the time I’m publishing this post.

My colleague Kevin Meynell provided more info about this public comment process when it began in March. At the IETF 101 meeting in London, I spoke with ICANN staff who again stated that they would like to hear from many voices about whether they should go ahead with the Root KSK Rollover on 11 October 2018. It’s very simple to send in comments:

You can see the current list of comments at: https://mm.icann.org/pipermail/comments-ksk-rollover-restart-01feb18/2018q1/thread.html (All comments are public.)

I would encourage anyone interested to submit comments (even if they are simply “I support the plan.”).

And if you have want more information about how to get started with using DNSSEC, please see our Deploy360 Start page to begin.

It includes more publicity about the need to be prepared for the rollover, and analysis of data indicating the level of preparedness.
