Translation please: Global Internet Outage Over Next 48 Hours

Should we be worried?

Global Internet Outage Over Next 48 Hours Could Affect Some Users, According To ICANN
October 12, 2018

ICANN has scheduled the Root Zone Key Signing Key (KSK) Rollover for today, and it could affect some DNS users all over the world.

By Rolling the KSK, ICANN implies that a new cryptographic public and private key pair will be generated and the private key will be distributed to internet service providers, enterprise network administrators, and Domain Name System (DNS) resolver operators.

KSK Rollover operations began in October 2016 and were scheduled for October 2017. However, ICANN announced that the rollover has been postponed due to the fact that “a significant number of resolvers used by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Network Operators are not yet ready for the Key Rollover.”

A draft plan was announced on February 1, 2018, after receiving input from the community; October 11, 2018, was the date put forward to initiate the procedure. According to ICANN, the rollover is necessary to curb the rising number of cyber attacks.

In an official statement, Communications Regulatory Authority said: “To further clarify, some internet users might be affected if their network operators or Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have not prepared for this change. However, this impact can be avoided by enabling the appropriate system security extensions.”

Due to the ongoing maintenance work, some internet users could face issues in accessing web pages or making transactions over the next 48 hours.

DISCLAIMER: I don't know shit from Shinola about computers!


Saw this in the comments section of the article:

This is unprecedented and something is not right. ICANN does not need to bring all their services down like this.
I've dealt with them and their services for over 20 years. Something is going on.

Too close to election. This is not good. May be why Obama gave ICANN away.

Does the comment have any validity?

My GF will be at the house when I get home. If I come up for air I'll check in to see if the snowbacks made PBB great again. See y'all on the other side.

no.

that's some tinfoil shit.
the reason that ICANN has never fully taken down the DNS system is because a key rollover has never been done.

They're swapping the crypto keys that protect the DNS system, because after 20+ years they are no long deemed adequate.

the only people that are going to have issues are relying on DNS servers that have misconfigured resolvers, or have not updated their DNS server with the new security stuff.

which, you already had problems, because your DNS server sucked dicks and may have been compromised anyhow.

edit: as for "too close to the election"

umm, this shit was scheduled a long, long time ago.

Overview
ICANN is planning to perform a Root Zone Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) KSK rollover as required in the Root Zone KSK Operator DNSSEC Practice Statement [TXT, 99 KB].

Rolling the KSK means generating a new cryptographic public and private key pair and distributing the new public component to parties who operate validating resolvers, including: Internet Service Providers; enterprise network administrators and other Domain Name System (DNS) resolver operators; DNS resolver software developers; system integrators; and hardware and software distributors who install or ship the root's "trust anchor." The KSK is used to cryptographically sign the Zone Signing Key (ZSK), which is used by the Root Zone Maintainer to DNSSEC-sign the root zone of the Internet's DNS.

Maintaining an up-to-date KSK is essential to ensuring DNSSEC-validating DNS resolvers continue to function following the rollover. Failure to have the current root zone KSK will mean that DNSSEC-validating DNS resolvers will be unable to resolve any DNS queries.

The KSK rollover plans were developed by the Root Zone Management Partners; ICANN in its role as the IANA Functions Operator, Verisign as the Root Zone Maintainer, and the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) as the Root Zone Administrator. The role of NTIA ended on 1 October 2016. The KSK rollover plans were posted in July 2016 and incorporate the community Root Zone KSK Rollover Design Team recommendations [PDF, 1.01 MB].

like I said, planned years ago. This shit is nothing new to anyone in IT, and if you have problems because of it, it's because your provider or IT staff sucks.

So some people will be affected while others won't?
