        Simple Homenet Naming and Service Discovery Architecture
                  draft-ietf-homenet-simple-naming-00

Abstract

   This document describes a simple name resolution and service
   discovery architecture for homenets, using the 'home.arpa' domain
   name hierarchy.  This architecture covers local publication of names,
   as well as name resolution service for local and global names for
   devices connected to the homenet.

   This document does not cover discovery of homenet services by devices
   not connected to the homenet, nor DNSSEC, nor acquisition and
   configuration of a global name as an alternative to 'home.arpa'.
   These topics will be addressed in a separate document.

1.  Introduction

   This document describes a simple architecture for providing name
   service and service discovery for homenets.  This allows hosts
   connected to the homenet to use the Domain Name System to discover
   services and the hosts providing those services, whether they are on
   the home network or the Internet.  In addition, the architecture
   provides a way for hosts connected to the homenet that provide
   services to advertise those services for discovery by other homenet
   hosts.

   This simple architecture is intended to serve as a foundational
   architecture for naming on home networks.  It is expected that all
   Homenet routers will implement this architecture.  It satisfies a
