Technical Summary

  DNSSEC Lookaside Validation (DLV) is a mechanism for distributing
  DNSSEC trust anchors within the DNS protocol.  In a world where DNSSEC
  resolvers seek to validate signed data from zones whose ancestors
  either are not signed or refuse to publish DS records for their
  children, DLV provides an alternative to manually configuring those
  resolvers with a large static set of trust anchors which must then be
  manually maintained.

Protocol Quality

  DLV is implemented in at least one open-source DNS resolver.
