	Title		: Inter-operability of Secure Domain Name System with 
                          Other Key Distribution Services

There are several mechanisms for distributing public keys and
certificates today. These distribution services publish certificates
which contain cryptographic public keys. Clients that use any of
these distribution services to retrieve certificates, require
additional software for the retrieval, parsing and verification
of these certificates. In this draft, we propose an alternate
scheme that takes advantage of the Secure DNS infrastructure to
distribute verified public keys obtained from other distribution
services.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
