(1) What type of RFC is being requested (BCP, Proposed Standard,
Internet Standard, Informational, Experimental, or Historic)? Why
is this the proper type of RFC? Is this type of RFC indicated in the
title page header?
RFC is Standards Track, which is listed and we feel is correct.
The DNSSEC protocol makes use of various cryptographic algorithms in
order to provide authentication of DNS data and proof of non-
existence. To ensure interoperability between DNS resolvers and DNS
authoritative servers, it is necessary to specify a set of algorithm
implementation requirements and usage guidelines to ensure that there
is at least one algorithm that all implementations support. This
document defines the current algorithm implementation requirements
and usage guidance for DNSSEC. This document obsoletes
Working Group Summary
The Working Group did not have any controvesery on this document.
There was discussion around the 2119 Normative terms as this draft
uses RECOMMENDED/NOT RECOMMENDED instead of SHOULD/SHOULD NOT.
This did not cause any probelms gaining consensus
Document is very concise and informative as it updates the
list of recommendations for DNSKEY algorithms.

Consensus is solid
(10) Has anyone threatened an appeal or otherwise indicated extreme
discontent? If so, please summarise the areas of conflict in separate

(11) Identify any ID nits the Document Shepherd has found in this
document. (See https://www.ietf.org/tools/idnits/ and the Internet-Drafts
Checklist). Boilerplate checks are not enough; this check needs to be

should not. Also, 'NOT RECOMMENDED' is not in the list of 2119 key words
though it is used.
(12) Describe how the document meets any required formal review
criteria, such as the MIB Doctor, media type, and URI type reviews.
No formal reviews
(13) Have all references within this document been identified as
either normative or informative?
All references have been identified.
(14) Are there normative references to documents that are not ready for
advancement or are otherwise in an unclear state? If such normative
references exist, what is the plan for their completion?
(15) Are there downward normative references references (see RFC 3967)?
If so, list these downward references to support the Area Director in
the Last Call procedure.
(16) Will publication of this document change the status of any
existing RFCs? Are those RFCs listed on the title page header, listed
in the abstract, and discussed in the introduction? If the RFCs are not
listed in the Abstract and Introduction, explain why, and point to the
part of the document where the relationship of this document to the
other RFCs is discussed. If this information is not in the document,

are associated with the appropriate reservations in IANA registries.

identified. Confirm that newly created IANA registries include a
detailed specification of the initial contents for the registry, that
allocations procedures for future registrations are defined, and a
reasonable name for the new registry has been suggested (see RFC 5226).

allocations. Provide any public guidance that the IESG would find
useful in selecting the IANA Experts for these new registries.
No IANA considerations

Shepherd to validate sections of the document written in a formal
