With the DNSSEC Root Key Rollover coming up on October 11, how prepared are we as an industry? What kind of data can we collect in preparation? What is the cost benefit (or not) of implementing DANE? What can we learn from an existing rollover of a cryptographic algorithm?
All those questions and more will be discussed at the DNSSEC Workshop at the ICANN 62 meeting in Panama City, Panama, on Monday, June 25, 2018. The session will begin at 9:00 and conclude at 12:15 EST (UTC-5). [Note: this is one hour different than current US Eastern Daylight Time – Panama does not change to daylight savings time – and so this will begin at 10:00 EDT (UTC-4).]
The agenda includes:
- DNSSEC Workshop Introduction, Program, Deployment Around the World – Counts, Counts, Counts
- Panel: DNSSEC Activities and Post Key Signing Key Rollover Preparation
- DANE: Status, Cost Benefits, Impact from KSK Rollover
- An Algorithm Rollover (case study from CZ.NIC)
- Panel: KSK Rollover Data Collection and Analysis
- DNSSEC – How Can I Help?
- The Great DNSSEC/DNS Quiz
It should be an outstanding session! For those onsite, the workshop will be in Salon 4, the ccNSO room.

- More info and slides are available from these URLs (ICANN’s online schedule system breaks it up into sections based on breaks and lunch):
Lunch will follow. Thank you to our lunch sponsors: Afilias, CIRA, and SIDN.
The DNSSEC Workshop will be followed by the “Tech Day” set of presentations from 13:30 – 18:30 EST. Many of those may also be of interest. They will also be streamed live at the same URL.
As this is ICANN’s smaller “Policy Forum” schedule, there will not be either the “DNSSEC for Everybody” session nor the “DNSSEC Implementer’s Gathering” as there is at the other two ICANN meetings each year. Also, as I am not able to travel to ICANN 62, I want to thank Jacques Latour for stepping in to help with the usual presenting and emceeing that I do.
Please do join us for a great set of sessions about how we can work together to make the DNS more secure and trusted!

As you may have noticed, our shiny new website has some speed issues. It is slow for many visitors. Over the past few months we’ve worked on a number of potential changes to improve the site performance. One big change we’re making is to move to a different hosting provider.
That change will happen tomorrow – Tuesday, 19 June 2018 at 13:00 UTC.
Assuming all goes well, you shouldn’t really notice – except that the site should be faster! But if you happen to be browsing the site around 13:00 UTC, you might see some glitches on pages while the DNS magic happens and we change to pointing to the new server.
Once we’ve made this migration, I’ll write more about what we have done and how it has helped our site’s performance. Meanwhile, I just wanted to give a quick alert about this impending change to anyone viewing our site.

If any of you will be at WordCamp Europe 2018 this week in Belgrade, Serbia, please do say hello. I'll be there starting this afternoon and am greatly looking forward to learning from many of the people involved deeply in the WordPress community.
In particular I'm looking forward to the Developing for Privacy and Data Protection session. Based on the work done in the community to help website operators comply with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), this workshop will look at what comes next. I'm personally very interested to see where this will go.
I'll also be going to some accessibility workshops and checking in on topics such as caching, security and mobility that are always of interest. I also have some meetings with partners and others.
Anyway, if you're there at WCEU 2018, feel free to drop me a note.
Today, on the sixth anniversary of World IPv6 Launch, Vint Cerf, co-designer of the TCP/IP protocol and a “Father of the Internet”, sent us this video message to share with you all:

As a side event before the 2018 G7 Summit this week in Canada, tomorrow, 6 June 2018, the Internet Society will hold a panel to not only talk about the risks and opportunities the Internet of Things (IoT) brings, but also what policy makers can do to build a connected future for everyone.
The panel, Innovation, security, and the Internet of Things, will take place in Ottawa Ontario. If you’re in Ottawa, you can join us from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, 6 June, at the Alt Hotel Ottawa at 185 Slater St. If you’re somewhere else, the event will be
Moderator David Akin (Global News) will facilitate a discussion between:
- Jeff Wilbur, Director, Online Trust Alliance
- Katie Watson, Policy Advisor, Internet Society
- Jacques Latour, Chief Technology Officer, Canadian Internet Registration Authority
- Mike Hoye, Engineering Community Manager, Mozilla
While the opportunities these connected devices can bring us are virtually unprecedented, the steps we must go through to protect ourselves online can feel overwhelming. At the Internet Society, we believe in a future where manufactures, software developers and service providers put people first and ensure user’s privacy and security is their top priority.
To understand more, you can listen to Mark Buell, North American Bureau Director, explain why a secure and open Internet is important, what we expect from G7 leaders, and what to expect from the expert panel discussion on the topic (audio, 6 minutes):
- Joint Call to G20 Leaders: Bring people to the centre of the digital future
- Online Trust Alliance IoT Trust Framework
- IoT Security for Policy Makers
- Policy Brief: Internet of Things
- The Internet of Things (IoT): An Overview
