Technical Summary This document specifies a new resource record (RR) for the Domain Name System (DNS), and how to use it with the Host Identity Protocol (HIP). This RR allows a HIP node to store in the DNS its Host Identity (HI, the public component of the node public-private key pair), Host Identity Tag (HIT, a truncated hash of its public key), and the Domain Names of its rendezvous servers (RVSs). This document obsoletes RFC5205. Working Group Summary There were no unusual occurrences for this document Document Quality As discussed in RFC 6538, there are several implementations of the Experimental HIP specs. At least HIP for Linux and OpenHIP will be updated to comply with the standards-track specs. Personnel Gonzalo Camarillo is the document shepherd. Terry Manderson is the responsible area director.
