Technical Summary This document describes how to specify Elliptic Curve DSA keys and signatures in DNSSEC. It lists curves of different sizes, and uses the SHA-2 family of hashes for signatures. Working Group Summary Working group has not had any issues with this document, there was some disucussion during the drafts adoption if this was needed. The document editors have been good about addressing any points raised. Consensus is solid. Document Quality The document is well written, there are at least 2 implementations and they interoperate. The document has been stable since being adopted by the working group most of the versions have been to incorporate textual changes of the clarificaiton kind, and the last one addressed ID-nits.
