This document specifies mechanisms to configure DDoS Open Threat
Signaling (DOTS) clients with their DOTS servers. The discovery
procedure also covers the DOTS signal channel Call Home. It can be
useful to know the appropriate DOTS server for a given location in
order to engage mitigation actions. This is true even in cases where
the DOTS client cannot localize the attack: cases where it only knows
that some resources are under attack and that help is needed.

This document is a product of the DDoS Open Threat Signaling Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
