This draft is a work item of the DNS Extensions Working Group of the IETF.
Title : RSA/SHA-1 SIGs and RSA KEYs in the Domain Name System
Author(s) : D. Eastlake 3rd

Since the adoption of a Proposed Standard for RSA signatures in the
DNS [RFC 2537], advances in hashing have been made. A new DNS
signature algorithm is defined to make these advances available in
SIG resource records (RRs). The use of the previously specified
weaker mechanism is deprecated. The algorithm number of the RSA KEY
RR is changed to correspond to this new SIG algorithm. No other
changes are made to DNS security.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
