                      DNS Reverse IP AMT Discovery
                draft-ietf-mboned-driad-amt-discovery-01

Abstract

   This document updates RFC 7450 (Automatic Multicast Tunneling, or
   AMT) by extending the relay discovery process to use a new DNS
   resource record named AMTRELAY when discovering AMT relays for
   source-specific multicast channels.  The reverse IP DNS zone for a
   multicast sender's IP address is configured to use AMTRELAY resource
   records to advertise a set of AMT relays that can receive and forward
   multicast traffic from that sender over an AMT tunnel.
