A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries. RFC 3110 Title: RSA/SHA-1 SIGs and RSA KEYs in the Domain Name System (DNS) Author(s): D. Eastlake 3rd Status: Standards Track Date: May 2001 Mailbox: Donald.Eastlake@motorola.com Pages: 7 Characters: 14587 Updates/Obsoletes/SeeAlso: None I-D Tag: draft-ietf-dnsext-rsa-03.txt URL: ftp://ftp.rfc-editor.org/in-notes/rfc3110.txt This document describes how to produce RSA/SHA1 SIG resource records (RRs) in Section 3 and, so as to completely replace RFC 2537, describes how to produce RSA KEY RRs in Section 2. Since the adoption of a Proposed Standard for RSA signatures in the DNS (Domain Name Space), advances in hashing have been made. A new DNS signature algorithm is defined to make these advances available in SIG RRs. The use of the previously specified weaker mechanism is deprecated. The algorithm number of the RSA KEY RR is changed to correspond to this new SIG algorithm. No other changes are made to DNS security. This document is a product of the DNS Extensions Working Group of the IETF. This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol. This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. This announcement is sent to the IETF list and the RFC-DIST list. Requests to be added to or deleted from the IETF distribution list should be sent to IETF-REQUEST@IETF.ORG. Requests to be added to or deleted from the RFC-DIST distribution list should be sent to RFC-DIST-REQUEST@RFC-EDITOR.ORG.
