 DNS Privacy Requirements for Exchanges between Recursive Resolvers and
                         Authoritative Servers
                draft-ietf-dprive-phase2-requirements-02

Abstract

   This document describes requirements and considerations for adding
   confidentiality to DNS exchanges between recursive resolvers and
   authoritative servers.  The intent of this document is to guide
   Internet Drafts in the DNS Private Exchange (DPRIVE) Working Group
   pertaining to recursive to authorized name servers, with the stated
   requirements and considerations.

1.  Introduction & Scope

   The 2018 approved charter of the IETF DPRIVE Working Group [1]
   contains milestones related to confidentiality aspects of DNS
   transactions between the recursive resolver and authoritative name
   servers.

   This is also reflected in the DPRIVE milestones [2], which (as of
   October 2019) contains two relevant milestones:

      Develop requirements for adding confidentiality to DNS exchanges
      between recursive resolvers and authoritative servers (unpublished
      document).

      Investigate potential solutions for adding confidentiality to DNS
      exchanges involving authoritative servers (Experimental).
