> Technical Summary
> 
> Encrypted communication on the Internet often uses Transport Level
> Security (TLS), which depends on third parties to certify the keys
> used. This document improves on that situation by enabling the
> administrator of a domain name to publish the keys used in the
> DNS, secured with DNSSEC.
> 
> Working Group Summary
> 
> 
> The working group made extensive use of the issue tracker:
> listing, opening, discussing and then calling consensus on
> each issue. This gave everyone the opportunity to participate
> and be heard. There have been approximately 2,000 messages
> discussing this (and closely related) documents.
> 
> Document Quality
> 
> There is a tool (Swede - https://github.com/pieterlexis/swede)
> that generates TLSA records, and a proof-of-concept implementation
> of DANE for NSS (https://mattmccutchen.net/cryptid/#nss-dane).
> A number of vendors have mentioned that they are planning on
> implementing the specification.
> 
> I do not think that it would be fair (or possible) to single
> out any specific reviewers -- we have had a large number of very
> active reviewers / participants and they have all been very diligent
> (and sometimes vocal :-)) in providing feedback.

> Personnel
> 
> Warren Kumari is acting as the Document Shepherd.
> Stephen Farrell is the Responsible Area Director.
