ICANN.jpgDo you have any comments on the findings of the ICANN Design Team regarding the changing of the root zone key-signing key (KSK) for DNSSEC?  If so, you have about five hours left to submit your comments as the comment period ends at 23:59 UTC today, 5 October 2015. You can read the Design Team report and submit your own comments at:

https://www.icann.org/public-comments/root-ksk-2015-08-06-en

The comment period has been open since August 6, 2015, and the word has been distributed through multiple online mailing lists and other forums in the time since.  To date there have only been a few comments, although I’m seeing several (including my own) coming in today:

You may recall that ICANN announced the members of this design team back in February 2015 and this was after a comprehensive public comment period back in 2013.  Here are some links that can provide some context:

As you will see in my own response, I am generally pleased with the findings of the Design Team but have a few points I wish to add.

NOW IS THE TIME TO SUBMIT YOUR COMMENTS… you have about five hours left!

P.S. And if you just want to learn what DNSSEC is all about, please visit our Start Here page to learn more!
