Name: Domain Boundaries (DBOUND)

Description

The Domain Boundaries (DBOUND) WG was a previous WG which focused on developing
a specification to represent differing administrative control between "related"
DNS names (such as example.com and foo.example.com).

This WG was concluded without agreement on a problem statement in mid-2017.
However, there's been additional recent interest in the work the former WG did,
recent developments in related working groups/their standards (e.g. DMARC), and
discussions on the mailing list/at past IETF meetings regarding if the previous
use-cases/draft problem statement still align with today's needs. During IETF115
an informal side-meeting occurred, with interest in following up with a BOF.

This BOF aims to discuss those use-cases and previous draft problem statements.
