Hi all,

Comments on the Plan to Restart the Root Key Signing Key (KSK) Rollover
Process opened early February this year
<https://www.icann.org/public-comments/ksk-rollover-restart-2018-02-01-en>.
For those who have not been following the process that closely, KSK serves
as a trust anchor for DNSSEC and was last (and for the first time) signed
in 2010. ICANN had scheduled to implement a new key in October. However,
they decided to postpone the signing of new cryptographic keys for the DNS
after finding that the resolvers used by ISPs and network operators were
still not ready and there's a need for more data in prepping for it.

While the comment is narrow and highly technical in its scope, the overall
idea of the process can be read as taking the next step in consolidating a
way of periodically changing keys -- thus enhancing security and resilience
in the DNS.

Tomslin, Dina and I have worked on this draft
<https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VNxn4UJlk8z196Kz56ucAdgyWp0ua9NmdHexRE1Wkhc/edit>
and would be happy to get more comments edits, suggestions on this. Feel
free to jump in.
