This document describes a DNS-based bootstrap mechanism to discover the initial peer or peers needed to join a P2PSIP Overlay. The document specifies the use of DNS Service Discovery (DNS-SD) and the format of the required resource records to support the discovery of P2PSIP peers. This mechanism can be applied in scenarios with DNS servers or combined with multicast DNS to fulfill different proposed P2PSIP use cases.
