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. Working Group Summary This document is not the product of an IETF Working Group. Protocol Quality DLV is implemented in at least one open-source DNS resolver. This document was reviewed by Russ Housley for the IESG.
