Dynamic update operations have been defined for the Domain Name System (DNS) in RFC 2136, but without a detailed description of security for those updates. Means of securing the DNS and using it for key distribution have been defined in RFC 2065.
This memo proposes techniques based on the defined DNS security mechanisms to authenticate DNS updates.
Familiarity with the DNS system [RFC 1034, 1035] is assumed. Familiarity with the DNS security and dynamic update proposals will be helpful.
