ICANN is postponing the cryptographic key KSK Rollover as a significant number of resolvers used by ISPs and network operators are not fully ready for the change which was due on 11 October 2017.
A new date has not yet been determined, however, ICANN suggests early in 2018.

There may be multiple reasons why operators do not have the new key installed in their systems: some may not have their resolver software properly configured and a recently discovered issue in one widely used resolver program appears to not be automatically updating the key as it should, for reasons that are still being explored.

Sometimes I forget the many processes that ISPs must keep current.
