Yes. While there is going to be a DITL collection by DNS-OARC around the KSK rollover, we will continue the ongoing data collection (at least at the root server operated by ICANN).

Part of this will be to establish what resolver behaviors are during the roll, both in terms of proper configuration and improper configuration, and seeing if we can see these signals at the vantage points we have (i.e., the root servers participating in the DITL collection).  We’re in the process of identifying those behaviors in the lab for the resolvers we can get our hands on, however if others have already done this, we’d love to hear about it.

That tells me that there are DNS consumers/stakeholders (including both those we have reached, and those we have not) who may have operational reactions to the roll: changing, turning off DNSSEC, keeping it on (steady state), etc.  I think we need to factor these kinds of measurements into decisions about when we can assess the effect of the Root KSK roll.

One thought would be to do an “After Action” survey similar to the KSK rollover preparedness survey we’ve already sent out to the contacts of around 16,000+ ASes. Or are you suggesting protocol-level data collection?
