Title : Indicating Resolver Support of DNSSEC
Author(s) : D. Conrad
Filename : draft-ietf-dnsext-dnssec-okbit-02.txt
Pages : 5
Date : 26-Apr-01
In order to deploy DNSSEC operationally, DNSSEC aware servers should

explicit indication that the resolver can understand those RRs. This

that explicit indication and the necessary protocol changes to
implement that notification.

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
