The Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) DNS Resource Record
allows a DNS domain name holder to specify one or more Certification
Authorities (CAs) authorized to issue certificates for that domain.
CAA Resource Records allow a public Certification Authority to
implement additional controls to reduce the risk of unintended
certificate mis-issue.  This document defines the syntax of the CAA
record and rules for processing CAA records by certificate issuers.

This document is a product of the Public-Key Infrastructure (X.509) 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
