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 ICANNOrganization's ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the rollover and will also afford details about the rollover process.
