Encrypted communication on the Internet often uses Transport Layer
Security (TLS), which depends on third parties to certify the keys
used.  This document improves on that situation by enabling the
administrators of domain names to specify the keys used in that
domain's TLS servers.  This requires matching improvements in TLS
client software, but no change in TLS server software.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
