Webinar: The KSK Rollover Delay and Next Steps

4 October 2017

LOS ANGELES – 4 October 2017 – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) today announced it will host an interactive webinar entitled, "The Root KSK Rollover Delay: Examination and Next Steps."

The webinar will be conducted by Matt Larson, Vice President of Research in ICANN's Office of the Chief Technology Officer.

Larson will be joined in the webinar by Duane Wessels, Distinguished Engineer at Verisign, Inc. Wessels has compiled data about the readiness of resolvers for the upcoming root KSK roll.

The root zone KSK is the most important cryptographic key that helps protect the Domain Name System (DNS). The key was originally scheduled to be changed or "rolled" on 11 October 2017. On 27 September, the organization announced<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.icann.org_news_announcement-2D2017-2D09-2D27-2Den&d=DwMFaQ&c=FmY1u3PJp6wrcrwll3mSVzgfkbPSS6sJms7xcl4I5cM&r=pu7jN3q1ZBfuo7H0_TGgnLZ6DmTKXODkmnlRRHjLLAY&m=taRzpWjDzSTu-JDZ9WLwqHXhji1sQxNwXrQmJ3Ns0f8&s=KN0rcLMf81bfMoLmG0tq0_SrQN6kkoeXwv3Kpoe4hhI&e=> that after analyzing new data, it had decided to postpone the roll. The new data indicated that too many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Network Operators were simply not ready for the changing of the key and ICANN didn't want to take a chance that the end Internet users of those operators would lose connectivity with the DNS.

Larson will also talk about what comes next in terms of determining a new date for the changing of the key.

In order to facilitate global participation, interpretation services will be available in Arabic, Chinese, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session. During the course of the webinar, participants may submit questions using the chat function in Adobe Connect.

In advance of the webinar, questions may be submitted to kskroll-questions at icann.org<mailto:kskroll-questions at icann.org>. We will make every effort to answer the questions during the webinar or via email shortly afterwards. Please submit your requests no later than Monday, 9 October.

A recording of the webinar will be made available for future reference.
