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 certificate without needing to perform additional DNS record lookups. It will typically not be used for general DNSSEC validation of TLS endpoint names.
