Hi folks,

ICANN has announced its plan to proceed with the DNSSEC KSK Roll on 11 October 2018, which will result in KSK-2017 replacing KSK-2010. This change is part of ICANN’s security best practice in managing the Root Key for the DNSSEC infrastructure. The new KSK-2017 has already been published in the root (.) zone since July 2017.

I have published two blog posts on the topic:

Watch Out for the DNSSEC Rollover this October
