The EDNS(0) Extension Mechanism for DNS [RFC6891] is explicitly defined to only have "per-message" semantics. This document defines a new Session Signaling Opcode used to carry persistent "per-session" type-length-values (TLVs), and defines an initial set of TLVs used to manage session timeouts and termination.
