This document describes two methods for deriving the
canonically-ordered predecessor and successor of a DNS name.  These
methods may be used for dynamic NSEC resource record
synthesis, enabling security-aware name servers to provide
authenticated denial of existence without disclosing other owner names
in a DNSSEC secured zone.  This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the DNS Extensions
Working Group of the IETF.
