This document updates the IANA registries in RFC 4255, which defines
SSHFP, a DNS Resource Record (RR) that contains a standard Secure
Shell (SSH) key fingerprint used to verify SSH host keys using DNS
Security Extensions (DNSSEC).  This document defines additional
options supporting SSH public keys applying the Elliptic Curve
Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) and the implementation of
fingerprints computed using the SHA-256 message digest algorithm in
SSHFP Resource Records.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
