Abstract

During discussions on how to add DNS-Based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE) [RFC6698] technology to new protocols and services, people were repeatedly confused as to what the numeric values stood for and even the order of the fields of a TLSA record (note that TLSA is not an acronym but a name). This document updates the IANA registry definition for the TLSA record to add a column containing an acronym for each specified field, in order to reduce confusion. This document does not change the DANE protocol in any way.
