Abstract

This document specifies a resource record (RR) for the Domain Name System (DNS) [RFC1034] and how to use it with the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) [RFC7401]. This RR allows a HIP node to store in the DNS its Host Identity (HI), the public component of the node public- private key pair; its Host Identity Tag (HIT), a truncated hash of its HI; and the domain names of its rendezvous servers (RVSs) [RFC8004].

Abstract

   This document specifies a resource record (RR) for the Domain Name    System (DNS) and how to use it with the Host Identity Protocol (HIP).    This RR allows a HIP node to store in the DNS its Host Identity (HI),    the public component of the node public-private key pair; its Host    Identity Tag (HIT), a truncated hash of its public key (PK); and the    domain names of its rendezvous servers (RVSs).  This document    obsoletes RFC 5205.
