          Delegation Information (Referrals) Signer for DNSSEC
         draft-fujiwara-dnsop-delegation-information-signer-00

Abstract

   DNSSEC does not protect delegation information, it contains NS RRSet
   on the parent side and glue records.  This document defines
   delegation information signer (DiS) resource record for protecting
   the delegation information, by inserting on the parent side of zone
   cut to hold a hash of delegation information.  The DiS resource
   record reuses the type code and wire format of DS resource record,
   and distinguishes it from existing DS RRSet by using a new digest
   type.  This document also describes the usage of DiS resource record
   and shows the implications on security-aware resolvers.  The
   definition and usage are compatible with current DNSSEC.

1.  Introduction

   The current DNSSEC specifications [RFC4033], [RFC4034], [RFC4035] do
   not protect the parent side NS RRSet and glue contained in the
   delegation information.

   Recently, the word "in-domain" is defined by [RFC8499].  The in-
   domain glue is necessary and sufficient glue information for name
   resolution.  [I-D.ietf-dnsop-glue-is-not-optional] proposes that Glue
   records are expected to be returned as part of a referral and if they
   cannot be fitted into the UDP response, TC=1 MUST be set to inform
   the client that the response is incomplete and that TCP SHOULD be
   used to retrieve the full response.

   Then, we can define complete delegation information set that contains
   the parent side NS RRSet and all in-domain glue.  We can generate a
   hash of the parent side NS RRSet and in-domain glue, and put it in
   DNS as a parent side information.

   The delegation information signer (DiS) resource record (RR) is
   inserted at a zone cut (i.e., a delegation point) to hold a hash of
   delegation information (parent side NS RRSet) and required glue.  The
   DiS resource record reuses DS resource record and distinguishes it
   from DS RRSet by using a new digest type and a new algorithm number.
