      DNS Security (DNSSEC) DNSKEY Algorithm IANA Registry Updates

Abstract

   The DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) require the use of cryptographic
   algorithm suites for generating digital signatures over DNS data.
   The algorithms specified for use with DNSSEC are reflected in an
   IANA-maintained registry.  This document presents a set of changes
   for some entries of the registry.

1.  Introduction

   The Domain Name System (DNS) Security Extensions (DNSSEC, defined by
   [RFC4033], [RFC4034], [RFC4035], [RFC4509], [RFC5155], and [RFC5702])
   use digital signatures over DNS data to provide source authentication
   and integrity protection.  DNSSEC uses an IANA registry to list codes
   for digital signature algorithms (consisting of an asymmetric
   cryptographic algorithm and a one-way hash function).

   This document updates a set of entries in the IANA registry titled
   "DNS Security (DNSSEC) Algorithm Numbers".  These updated entries are
   given in Section 2.2 below.  This list includes changes to selected
   entries originally set aside for future algorithm specification that
   did not occur.  These three entries are changed to "Reserved" to
   avoid potential conflicts with older implementations.  This document
   also brings the list of references for entries up to date.

   There are auxiliary sub-registries related to the DNS Security
   (DNSSEC) Algorithm Numbers registry that deal with various Diffie-
   Hellman parameters used with DNSSEC.  These registry tables are not
   altered by this document.

2.  The DNS Security Algorithm Numbers Sub-Registry

   The DNS Security Algorithm Numbers sub-registry (part of the Domain
   Name System Security (DNSSEC) Algorithm Numbers registry) contains a
   set of entries that contain errors.  There are additional differences
   to entries that are described in Section 2.1, and the complete list
   of changed registry entries is in Section 2.2.

2.1.  Updates and Additions

   This document updates three entries in the Domain Name System
   Security (DNSSEC) Algorithm Numbers registry:

   The description for assignment number 4 is changed to "Reserved".

   The description for assignment number 9 is changed to "Reserved".
