At 1600 UTC today, 11 October (or shortly thereafter), a root zone will be published with only the "new" KSK (called KSK-2017) signing the root zone's apex DNSKEY RRset. Currently the root zone's apex DNSKEY RRset is signed only with the soon-to-be "old" KSK (called KSK-2010). The publication of this root zone implements the root KSK rollover.

	To complement your answer, we can say this is a "pre-publish" type
	rollover (as opposed to a double signature one) -- if that was what
	Suhayb was referring to.
