Technical Summary

   This draft describes a new TLS extension for transport of a DNS
   record set serialized with the DNSSEC signatures needed to
   authenticate that record set.  The intent of this proposal is to
   allow TLS clients to perform DANE authentication of a TLS server
   without needing to perform additional DNS record lookups.  It will
   typically not be used for general DNSSEC validation of TLS endpoint
   names.

Working Group Summary

   There was good support and no controversy on list or in meetings.

Document Quality

   The draft has had a fair amount of review.  I am not aware of 
   implementations as it wasn't reported by the document
   shepherd. 

Personnel

   The document shepherd is Joseph Salowey and the 
   responsible AD is Kathleen Moriarty.

IANA Note

     A new value in the TLS ExtensionsType registry
