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:
- Background information on the Root KSK Rollover process
- March 2013 ICANN Consultation on Root Zone KSK Rollover
- Public responses to the March 2013 consultation
- Internet Society response to the March 2013 consultation (submitted by myself and Andrei Robachevsky)
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!
