ICANN Publishes Comprehensive Guide on What to Expect During the Root KSK

22 August 2018

LOS ANGELES – 22 August 2018 – As the ICANN Organization prepares, for the
first time ever, to change the cryptographic keys that help protect the
Internet's Domain Name System (DNS), the organization has published a guide
to let people know what to expect.

The changing of the keys, known as the "Root Key Signing Key (KSK)
Rollover", is currently scheduled for 11 October 2018. The new ICANN guide
is intended for those with all levels of technical expertise. It will help
everyone prepare for the rollover by detailing what to expect. It is part
of the ICANN Organization's ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the
rollover and will also afford details about the rollover process.

The guide can be accessed here [icann.org]
[PDF, 107 KB]. Those who will find the guide most useful are operators of
validating resolvers seeking clear direction on what to look for once the
rollover occurs; non-technical journalists, bloggers and others who intend
to write about the rollover before, during, and after the event will also
benefit. Additionally, the document can be of value researchers who will be
monitoring the DNS for indications of resolver failure after the rollover

While ICANN org expects user impact from the root KSK rollover to be
minimal [icann.org]
a small percentage of Internet users are expected to see problems in
resolving domain names, which in lay terms means they will have problems
reaching their online destination. There are currently a small number of
Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) validating recursive
resolvers that are misconfigured, and some of the users relying upon these
resolvers may experience problems. This document describes which users are
most likely to see problems, and among those - what types of issues they
will face at various times. To summarize:

*Those who will not be affected:*

   - Users who rely on a resolver that has the new KSK
   - Users who rely on a resolver that does not perform DNSSEC validation

*Those who will be affected and how:*

   - If all of a users' resolvers do not have the new KSK in their trust
   anchor configuration, the user will start seeing name resolution failures
   (typically "server failure" or SERVFAIL errors) at some point within 48
   hours of the rollover. *NOTE:* It is impossible to predict when the
   operators of affected resolvers will notice that validation is failing for

Data analysis suggests that more than 99% of users whose resolvers are
validating will be unaffected by the KSK rollover. Users who use at least
one resolver that is ready for the rollover will see no change in their use
of the DNS or the Internet in general after the rollover. (The same is true
for users whose resolvers do not perform DNSSEC validation at all. Current
estimates are that about two-thirds of users are behind resolvers that do
not yet perform DNSSEC validation.)

Lastly, while the rollover is currently planned to take place on 11 October
2018, this date is pending ratification by the ICANN Board.

ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global
Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an
address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That
address must be unique, so computers know where to find each other. ICANN
helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world.
ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation
with a community of participants from all over the world.
