           Definition and Use of DNSSEC Negative Trust Anchors


   DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) is now entering widespread    deployment.  However, domain signing tools and processes are not yet    as mature and reliable as those for non-DNSSEC-related domain    administration tools and processes.  This document defines Negative    Trust Anchors (NTAs), which can be used to mitigate DNSSEC validation    failures by disabling DNSSEC validation at specified domains.
