(I believe this has been posted before, but to have a post-holiday period

ICANN, as the IANA functions operator, in cooperation with Verisign as the
Root Zone Maintainer and the National Telecommunications Information
Administration (NTIA) as the Root Zone Administrator, together known as
the Root Zone Management (RZM) partners, seek to develop a plan for
rolling the DNS root zone key-signing key (KSK). The KSK is used to sign
root zone zone-signing key (ZSK), which in turn is used to DNSSEC-sign the
Internet¹s root zone. The Root Zone Partners are soliciting five to seven
volunteers from the community to participate in a Design Team to develop
the Root Zone KSK Rollover Plan (³The Plan²). These volunteers along with
the RZM partners will form the Design Team to develop The Plan.

Individuals interested in volunteering approximately 5 hours per week for
the Design Team should consult the announcement:


and submit their Statement of Interest to ksk-rollover-soi at icann.org no
later than January 16, 2015.
