Technical Summary The DNSSEC protocol makes use of various cryptographic algorithms in order to provide authentication of DNS data and proof of non- existence. To ensure interoperability between DNS resolvers and DNS authoritative servers, it is necessary to specify a set of algorithm implementation requirements and usage guidelines to ensure that there is at least one algorithm that all implementations support. This document defines the current algorithm implementation requirements and usage guidance for DNSSEC. This document obsoletes [RFC6944]. Working Group Summary The Working Group did not have any controversy on this document. There was discussion around the 2119 Normative terms as this draft uses RECOMMENDED/NOT RECOMMENDED instead of SHOULD/SHOULD NOT. This did not cause any problems gaining consensus Document Quality Document is very concise and informative as it updates the list of recommendations for DNSKEY algorithms. The document (currently) has a section listing which implementations support with algorithms / requirements. Personnel Document Shepherd? Tim Wicinski Responsible Area Director? Warren Kumari
