The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'DNS Extensions to support IP version 6' <draft-ietf-dnsext-rfc1886bis-03.txt> as a Draft Standard. This document is the product of the DNS Extensions Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Thomas Narten Erik Nordmark Technical Summary This document defines the changes that need to be made to the Domain Name System to support hosts running IP version 6 (IPv6). The changes include a resource record type to store an IPv6 address, a domain to support lookups based on an IPv6 address, and updated definitions of existing query types that return Internet addresses as part of additional section processing. The extensions are designed to be compatible with existing applications and, in particular, DNS implementations themselves. This Document combines RFC1886 and changes to RFC 1886 made by RFC 3152, obsoleting both. Changes mainly consist in replacing the IP6.INT domain by IP6.ARPA as defined in RFC 3152. Working Group Summary There was WG consensus to advance this document. Protocol Quality The specification has been reviewed for the IESG by Erik Nordmark. The implementation report is available at http://www.ietf.org/IESG/Implementations/RFC1886-Implementation/rfc1886-Implementation.html RFC-editor notes: In the Abstract: s/Domain Name System/Domain Name System (DNS)/ s/RFC1886/RFC 1886/ Add this at the end of the Introduction section: The IP protocol version used for querying resource records is independent of the protocol version of the resource records; e.g. IPv4 transport can be used to query IPv6 records and vice versa.
