<jats:title>A<jats:sc>bstract</jats:sc> </jats:title> <jats:p>The resonant structure of the doubly Cabibbo-suppressed decay <jats:italic>D</jats:italic> <jats:sup>+</jats:sup>→<jats:italic>K</jats:italic> <jats:sup>−</jats:sup> <jats:italic>K</jats:italic> <jats:sup>+</jats:sup> <jats:italic>K</jats:italic> <jats:sup>+</jats:sup> is studied for the first time. The measurement is based on a sample of <jats:italic>pp</jats:italic>-collision data, collected at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV with the LHCb detector and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2 fb<jats:sup>−1</jats:sup>. The amplitude analysis of this decay is performed with the isobar model and a phenomenological model based on an effective chiral Lagrangian. In both models the S-wave component in the <jats:italic>K</jats:italic> <jats:sup>−</jats:sup> <jats:italic>K</jats:italic> <jats:sup>+</jats:sup> system is dominant, with a small contribution of the <jats:italic>ϕ</jats:italic>(1020) meson and a negligible contribution from tensor resonances. The <jats:italic>K</jats:italic> <jats:sup>+</jats:sup> <jats:italic>K</jats:italic> <jats:sup>−</jats:sup> scattering amplitudes for the considered combinations of spin (0,1) and isospin (0,1) of the two-body system are obtained from the Dalitz plot fit with the phenomenological decay amplitude. </jats:p>
