Abstract

   This document defines a new DNS OPCODE for DNS Stateful Operations
   (DSO).  DSO messages communicate operations within persistent
   stateful sessions, using type-length-value (TLV) syntax.  Three TLVs
   are defined that manage session timeouts, termination, and encryption
   padding, and a framework is defined for extensions to enable new
   stateful operations.  This document updates RFC 1035 by adding a new
   DNS header opcode and result code which has different message
   semantics.  This document updates RFC 7766 by redefining a session,
   providing new guidance on connection re-use, and providing a new
   mechanism for handling session idle timeouts.
