The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Distributed Denial-of-Service Open Threat Signaling (DOTS) Signal
   Channel Specification'
  (draft-ietf-dots-rfc8782-bis-08.txt) as Proposed Standard

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

The IESG contact persons are Benjamin Kaduk and Roman Danyliw.

Technical Summary

   This document specifies the Distributed Denial-of-Service Open Threat
   Signaling (DOTS) signal channel, a protocol for signaling the need
   for protection against Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks
   to a server capable of enabling network traffic mitigation on behalf
   of the requesting client.

   This document obsoletes RFC 8782.  The major change is to use YANG structures
   instead of an ad-hoc construction.

Working Group Summary

  Shortly after RFC 8782 was published in May 2020 a problem with a YANG module defined in it was discovered.
  The WG decided to publish a -bis document to fix the problem. The -00 version of the draft was prepared
  fairly quickly (in June 2020) and the document was adopted in August 2020 (with a good WG support for adoption).
  The draft has been widely discussed and reviewed.

Document Quality

  This draft is a -bis document for RFC 8782, its main purpose is to fix YANG module. In addition it provides more
  comprehensive description of error handling and makes minor changes to DOTS CBOR Key Values allocation.
  This document doesn't change the DOTS Signal Channel protocol itself, in particular it doesn't change bits on the wire.
  DOTS Signal Channel protocol was thoroughly discussed and reviewed. There are at least two interoperable implementations of this protocol.
  The updated YANG module has been reviewed by YANG Doctors, who confirmed that they don't have problems with it.

  Valery Smyslov is the document shepherd.
