Domain Name System (DNS) Case Insensitivity Clarification

  title={Domain Name System (DNS) Case Insensitivity Clarification},
  author={Donald E. Eastlake},
Status of This Memo This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. Abstract Domain Name System (DNS) names are "case insensitive". This document explains exactly what that means and provides a clear… 

Internet Engineering Task Force (ietf)

RFC 2482, "Language Tagging in Unicode Plain Text", describes a mechanism for using special Unicode language tag characters to identify languages when needed without more general markup such as that

Injection Attacks Reloaded: Tunnelling Malicious Payloads over DNS

It is shown that the transparency of DNS in handling the DNS records, one of the key features that made it such a popular platform facilitating a constantly increasing number of new applications, introduces a severe vulnerability in the Internet.

Internet Engineering Task Force (ietf)

This document describes how to encode and extract the identity of a SIP domain in a certificate and how to use that identity for SIPdomain authentication.

This document describes how to encode and extract the identity of a SIP domain in a certificate and how to use that identity for SIPdomain authentication.

Independent Submission

DMARC is a mechanism for policy distribution that enables increasingly strict handling of messages that fail authentication checks, ranging from no action, through altered delivery, up to message rejection.

Proposed Update Unicode Technical Report # 36

This document describes some of the security considerations that programmers, system analysts, standards developers, and users should take into account, and provides specific recommendations to reduce the risk of problems.

Cybersquatting at the Intersection of Internet Domain Names and Trademark Law

The tutorial reviews the structure of the domain name space and it's associated protocols as well as the legal context for trademarks and the recent advances for adjudication of disputes related to cybersquatting.

Automated Certificate Management Environment (ACME) TLS Application‑Layer Protocol Negotiation (ALPN) Challenge Extension

IAB Thoughts on Encodings for Internationalized Domain Names

This document explores issues with Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) that result from the use of various encoding schemes such as UTF-8 and the ASCII-Compatible Encoding produced by the Punycode

Downstream Usage Control

This work presents a two-sided XML-based policy language that allows users to express in their preferences in a fine-grained way the exact paths that their data is allowed to follow, and the usage restrictions that apply at each hop in the path.



Domain Name System Structure and Delegation

This memo provides some information on the structure of the names in the Domain Name System (DNS), specifically the top-level domain names; and on the administration of domains. This memo provides

Nameprep: A Stringprep Profile for Internationalized Domain Names (IDN)

This document describes how to prepare internationalized domain name (IDN) labels in order to increase the likelihood that name input and name comparison work in ways that make sense for typical

Domain names: Concepts and facilities

This memo describes the domain style names and their used for host address look up and electronic mail forwarding and discusses the clients and servers in the domain name system and the protocol used between them.

Resource Records for the DNS Security Extensions

This document defines the public key (DNSKEY), delegation signer (DS), resource record digital signature (RRSIG), and authenticated denial of existence (NSEC) resource records.

Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications (IDNA)

This document defines internationalized domain names (IDNs) and a mechanism called Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications (IDNA) for handling them in a standard fashion and allows the non-ASCII characters to be represented using only the ASCII characters already allowed in so- called host names today.

Extension Mechanisms for DNS (EDNS0)

This document describes backward compatible mechanisms for allowing the Domain Name System's wire protocol to grow.

Handling of Unknown DNS Resource Record (RR) Types

This document specifies the changes necessary to allow future DNS implementations to handle new RR types transparently, and describes the steps needed to do so.

Secure Domain Name System (DNS) Dynamic Update

The authentication of the dynamic update message is separate from later DNSSEC validation of the data, and secure communication based on authenticated requests and transactions is used to provide authorization.

Domain Name System (DNS) IANA Considerations

Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA) parameter assignment considerations are given for the allocation of Domain Name System (DNS) classes, Resource Record (RR) types, operation codes, error

Reserved Top Level DNS Names

To reduce the likelihood of conflict and confusion, a few top level domain names are reserved for use in private testing, as examples in documentation, and the like. In addition, a few second level
