RFC 8460, "SMTP TLS Reporting", September 2018

Type: Technical

Section 6.7 says:

Item is missing entirely

It should say:

6.7 DKIM Service Type

This document registers a new DKIM Service Type in the DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) Parameters registry:

Service Type name: tlsrpt

Reference: RFC 8460

Status Active


The new service type is discussed in Section 3, so it should have been added to the registry. It's an IETF Review required registry, not Specification Required, so this can (and should) be addressed in terms at least of the registry now.

I would guess we can't rectify this oversight via the errata system. What got IETF Review was the need for the registration, but not the registration itself.

I imagine this should either be done through DISPATCH (which is chartered to do minor housekeeping things like this) or through an AD-sponsored document that contains only the registration.
