The DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) requires the use of
cryptographic algorithm suites for generating digital signatures over
DNS data.  There is currently an IANA registry for these algorithms,
but there is no record of the recommended implementation status of
each algorithm.  This document provides an applicability statement on
algorithm implementation status for DNSSEC component software.  This
document lists each algorithm's status based on the current
reference.  In the case that an algorithm is specified without an
implementation status, this document assigns one.  This document
updates RFCs 2536, 2539, 3110, 4034, 4398, 5155, 5702, and 5933.

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

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
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
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
