This document specifies two new resource records for the Domain Name System, and how to use them with the Host Identity Protocol. These records allow a HIP node to store in the DNS its Host Identity (i.e., its public key), Host Identity Tag (i.e., a truncated hash of its public key), and Rendezvous Servers (RVS).
