This document specifies a resource record (RR) for the Domain Name
System (DNS) and how to use it with the Host Identity Protocol (HIP).
This RR allows a HIP node to store in the DNS its Host Identity (HI),
the public component of the node public-private key pair; its Host
Identity Tag (HIT), a truncated hash of its public key (PK); and the
domain names of its rendezvous servers (RVSs).  This document
obsoletes RFC 5205.

This document is a product of the Host Identity Protocol Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
