Title : DNSSEC Opt-in for Large Zones
Author(s) : M. Kosters
Filename : draft-ietf-dnsext-dnssec-opt-in-00.txt
Pages : 9
Date : 26-Jun-01
In order for DNSSEC to be deployed operationally with large zones
and little operational impact, there needs to be included a
mechanism that allows for the separation of secure versus unsecure
views of zones. This needs to be done in a transparent fashion that
allows DNSSEC to be deployed in an incremental manner. This
document proposes a method using views to allow for incremental
growth of delegations that are registered as secure. This is
accomplished by extending the use of the NXT record to deal with
non-secure delegations as well as for non-existence.

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.
