      Resource Records for EUI-48 and EUI-64 Addresses in the DNS
               draft-jabley-dnsext-eui48-eui64-rrtypes-00

Abstract

   EUI-48 and EUI-64 are address formats specified by the IEEE for use
   in various layer-2 networks, e.g. ethernet.

   This document defines two new DNS resource record types, EUI48 and
   EUI64, for encoding ethernet addresses in the DNS.

Internet-Draft     Resource Records for EUI-48, EUI-64        March 2013

1.  Introduction

   The Domain Name System (DNS) is described in [RFC1034] and [RFC1035].
   This base specification defines many Resource Record Types (RRTypes),
   and subsequent specifications have defined others.  Each defined
   RRType provides a means of encoding particular data in the DNS.

   EUI-48 [EUI48] and EUI-64 [EUI64] are address formats specified by
   the IEEE for use in various layer-2 networks, e.g. ethernet.

   This document defines two new Resource Record Types (RRTypes), EUI48
   and EUI64 for encoding EUI-48 and EUI-64 addresses in the DNS.
