Technical Summary This document alters the requirements for DNSSEC algorithm identifiers from "standards action" to "RFC required". Working Group Summary The DNS Extensions Working Group reviewed the document. There was considerable discussion at the time of adoption, but almost exclusively support at the time of WGLC. Some LC comments resulted in a substantive change, which was to reserve a portion of the registry so as to avoid exhaustion. Document Quality The change suggested during WGLC ensures that the IANA registry will not be exhausted because nobody thought to revisit these procedures if the assumption about infrequent addition of algorithms turns out to be false. Personnel Andrew Sullivan (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the document shepherd. Ralph Droms (email@example.com) is the responsible AD. RFC Editor Note Please coordinate with IANA on the best URL and method for naming the registry/sub-registry referenced in "IANA Considerations" and in Peter Saint-Andre's Comment.
