This document describes a set of practices for operating the DNS with
security extensions (DNSSEC).  The target audience is zone
administrators deploying DNSSEC.

The document discusses operational aspects of using keys and
signatures in the DNS.  It discusses issues of key generation, key
storage, signature generation, key rollover, and related policies.

This document obsoletes RFC 4641, as it covers more operational
ground and gives more up-to-date requirements with respect to key
sizes and the DNSSEC operations.

This document is a product of the Domain Name System Operations Working Group of the IETF.
