Abstract

The Domain Name System (DNS) Security Extensions (DNSSEC, defined by [RFC4033], [RFC4034], [RFC4035], [RFC4509], [RFC5155], and [RFC5702]) use digital signatures over DNS data to provide source authentication and integrity protection. DNSSEC uses an IANA registry to list codes for digital signature algorithms (consisting of an asymmetric cryptographic algorithm and a one-way hash function).

       DNS Security (DNSSEC) DNSKEY Algorithm IANA Registry Updates

Abstract

   The DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) require the use of cryptographic    algorithm suites for generating digital signatures over DNS data.    The algorithms specified for use with DNSSEC are reflected in an    IANA-maintained registry.  This document presents a set of changes    for some entries of the registry.
