   The DNS relies upon caching to scale; however, the cache lookup
   generally requires an exact match.  This document specifies the use
   of NSEC/NSEC3 resource records to allow DNSSEC validating resolvers
   to generate negative answers within a range.  This increases
   performance / decreases latency, decreases resource utilization on
   both authoritative and recursive servers, and also increases privacy.
   It may also help increase resilience to certain DoS attacks in some

   This document updates RFC4035 by allowing validating resolvers to
   generate negative answers based upon NSEC/NSEC3 records.
