This document describes the DNS security extensions (commonly called "DNSSEC") that are specified RFCs 4033, 4034, 4035, and a handful of others. The purpose is to introduce all of the RFCs in one place so that the reader can understand the many aspects of DNSSEC. This document does not update any of those RFCs. This document is currently maintained at Issues and pull requests are welcomed. If the document is later adopted by a working group, a new repository will likely be created.
