   DNS Server Selection: DNS Server Information with Assertion Token
               draft-reddy-add-server-policy-selection-00

Abstract

   The document defines a mechanism that allows communication of DNS
   resolver information to DNS clients for use in selection decisions.
   In particuler, the document defines a mechanism for a DNS server to
   communicate its filtering policy and its privacy statement URL to DNS
   clients.  This information is cryptographically signed to attest its
   authenticity.  Such information is used for the selection of DNS
   resolvers.  Typically, evaluating the DNS privacy statement,
   filtering policy, and the signatory, DNS clients with minimum human
   intervention can select the DNS server that best supports the user's
   desired privacy and filtering policy.

   This assertion is useful for DNS-over-TLS and DNS-over-HTTPS servers
   that are either public resolvers or are discovered on a local
   network.
