I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's  
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the  
IESG.  These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the  
security area directors.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat  
these comments just like any other last call comments.

This document details how to produce RSA/SHA-512 and RSA/SHA-256  

I find the document more than adequately discusses and addresses  
security considerations.

I do note that the document appears to place an additional  
recommendation upon implementors of DNSSEC (in Section 5.1) yet does  
not "update" any DNSSEC specification.   It may be appropriate for  
this I-D to "update" (upon approval/publication) DNSSEC specifications.

Regards, Kurt
