Abstract

   This document describes a Dynamic Delegation Discovery System (DDDS)
   Database using the Domain Name System (DNS) as a distributed database
   of Rules.  The Keys are domain-names and the Rules are encoded using
   the Naming Authority Pointer (NAPTR) Resource Record (RR).

   Since this document obsoletes RFC 2915, it is the official
   specification for the NAPTR DNS Resource Record.  It is also part of
   a series that is completely specified in "Dynamic Delegation
   Discovery System (DDDS) Part One: The Comprehensive DDDS" (RFC 3401).
   It is very important to note that it is impossible to read and
   understand any document in this series without reading the others.
