A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the DNS Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : Signaling Cryptographic Algorithm Understanding in DNSSEC
	Author(s)       : S. Crocker, S. Rose
	Filename        : draft-ietf-dnsext-dnssec-algo-signal-01.txt
	Pages           : 8
	Date            : 2011-03-30

The DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) were developed to provide origin
authentication and integrity protection for DNS data by using digital
signatures.  These digital signatures can be generated using
different algorithms.  This draft sets out to specify a way for
validating end-system resolvers to signal to a server which
cryptographic algorithms they support.
