Title : Limiting the Scope of the KEY Resource Record
Author(s) : D. Massey, S. Rose
Filename : draft-ietf-dnsext-restrict-key-for-dnssec-03.txt
Pages : 15

This document limits the Domain Name System KEY resource record to
only keys used by the Domain Name System Security Extensions
(DNSSEC). The original KEY resource record used sub-typing to store
both DNSSEC keys and arbitrary application keys. Storing both DNSSEC
and application keys in one record was a mistake. This document
removes application keys from the KEY record by redefining the
Protocol Octet field in the KEY Resource Record Data. As a result of
removing application keys, all but one of the flags in the KEY record
become unnecessary and are removed. Three existing application key
sub-types are changed to reserved, but the format of the KEY record
is not changed. This document updates RFC 2535.

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
