This document describes how to use stateful hash-based signature schemes (SHBSS) with the DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC). The schemes include the Hierarchical Signature System (HSS) variant of Leighton-Micali Hash-Based Signatures (HSS/LMS), the eXtended Merkle Signature Scheme (XMSS), and XMSS Multi-Tree (XMSS^MT). In addition, DNSKEY and RRSIG record formats for the signature algorithms are defined and new algorithm identifiers are described.
