With the DS record  the concept of key-signing and zone-signing
keys has been introduced. Key-signing keys are the keys that sign
the keyset only. In general, key-signing keys are the keys that are
pointed to by DS records and are the first keys to be used when
following a chain of trust into the zone. The key-signing keys only
sign the KEY RRset at the apex of a zone, zone- signing keys sign all
other data in a zone. We propose a flag to distinguish the key-
signing key from other keys in the KEY RR set during DNSSEC

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
