Abstract

[RFC2870] discusses protocol and operational requirements for root name servers for the Internet's domain name system (DNS) protocol [RFC1035]. Since its publication, both protocol and operational requirements have evolved. It makes more sense now to separate the two sets of requirements into two separate documents. This document only defines the protocol requirements and some deployment requirements. The operational requirements that were defined in RFC 2870 have been removed. Operational requirements are now defined by the Root Server System Advisory Committee of ICANN and are documented in [RSSAC-001].
