The rise of spam and other anti-social behavior on the Internet has
led to the creation of shared blacklists and whitelists of IP
addresses or domains.  The DNS has become the de-facto standard
method of distributing these blacklists and whitelists.  This memo
documents the structure and usage of DNS-based blacklists and
whitelists, and the protocol used to query them.  This document 
is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for 
informational purposes.

This document is a product of the IRTF.

INFORMATIONAL: This memo provides information for the Internet community.
It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of
this memo is unlimited.

This announcement is sent to the IETF-Announce and rfc-dist lists.
