ICANN says, that concerns are overblown. We make get a chance to experience a pre-1992 world over the next 48 hours as some technical changes are made the routing of data. 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. Fossbytes says this could mess with Internet service all over the planet.   To put it more plainly, ICANN is updating its address book. 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. Ever wonder what a global Internet outage might feel like? More specifically, ICANN is working on something redundantly called the Root Zone Key Signing Key (KSK for short).

If you do experience Internet problems, try jiggling the handle before you freak out.
