DNSSEC badgeStarting in about 45 minutes, at 13:00 local time in Culpeper, Virginia, which is 17:00 UTC, you have the opportunity to watch the live stream of the Root KSK key-signing ceremony #25. More info can be found here:

and the direct link for watching is:

Internet Society CITO Olaf Kolkman will be among the participants as he is one of the 14 global “Crypto Officers” who has a role to play in the key signing ceremony. You can see the various roles in the KSK Ceremony 25 script, but perhaps better is to read this excellent description by Olafur Gudmundsson:

Olafur’s text, photos and graphics help explain what is going on.

If you can’t watch live but are interested in what happens, materials will be available after the fact including camera footage and more. (See the example of KSK Ceremony 24 from February 2016.)

While this may not necessarily be as exciting as a rocket launch, these public key signing ceremonies are important to ensure people understand and believe in the trustworthiness of the Root KSK that enables the overall DNSSEC global “chain of trust” to be reliable!
