                  Adding 100.64.0.0/10 Prefixes to the
                 IPv4 Locally-Served DNS Zones Registry

Abstract

   RFC 6598 specifies that "Reverse DNS queries for Shared Address Space
   addresses [100.64.0.0/10] MUST NOT be forwarded to the global DNS
   infrastructure."

   This document formally directs IANA to add the associated zones to
   the "IPv4 Locally-Served DNS Zones Registry" to prevent such queries
   from accidentally leaking to the global DNS infrastructure.

1.  Introduction

   [RFC6598] specifies that "Reverse DNS queries for Shared Address
   Space addresses [100.64.0.0/10] MUST NOT be forwarded to the global
   DNS infrastructure."  [RFC6303] provides guidance on handling such
   queries.

   This document directs the IANA to add the IPv4 reverse zones
   corresponding to 100.64.0.0/10, a netblock reserved in [RFC6598], to
   the "IPv4 Locally-Served DNS Zone Registry" established in [RFC6303].

   Unlike the addresses described in [RFC1918], which are not expected
   to be seen by other parties, the addresses defined by [RFC6598] are
   expected to be seen by parties other than those deploying the
   addresses.  Therefore, it is more crucial that recursive nameservers
   default to serving these zones locally.

2.  Changes to the IPv4 Locally-Served DNS Zones Registry

   IANA has added the zones listed in "RFC 6598 Zones" (Section 2.1) to
   the "IPv4 Locally-Served DNS Zone Registry".
