      Simple Provisioning of Public Names for Residential Networks
           draft-ietf-homenet-front-end-naming-delegation-12

Abstract

   Home owners often have IPv6 devices that they wish to access over the
   Internet using names.  It has been possible to register and populate
   a DNS Zone with names since DNS became a thing, but it has been an
   activity typically reserved for experts.  This document automates the
   process through creation of a Homenet Naming Authority, whose
   responsibility is to select, sign and publish names to a set of
   publically visible servers.

   The use of an outsourced primary DNS server deals with possible
   renumbering of the home network, and with possible denial of service
   attacks against the DNS infrastructure.

   This document describes the mechanism that enables the Home Network
   Authority (HNA) to outsource the naming service to the DNS
   Outsourcing Infrastructure via a Distribution Master (DM).

   In addition, this document deals with publication of a corresponding
   reverse zone.
