This document is being proposed as an Informational RFC as it provides
a list of suggestions that zone operators may choose into include in
their DNSSEC Policy and/or DNSSEC Practice statement.
The type of RFC is stated in the document header.

This document presents a framework to assist writers of DNSSEC
Policies and DNSSEC Practice Statements, such as Domain Managers and
Zone Operators on both the top-level and secondary level, who are
managing and operating a DNS zone with Security Extensions (DNSSEC)
In particular, the framework provides a comprehensive list of topics
that should be considered for inclusion into a DNSSEC Policy
definition and Practice Statement.

To assess the applicability and usefulness of the document, a survey
about DNSSEC policy and practice statements was conducted by the authors
amongst members of CENTR (Council of European National Top Level Domain
Registries). Among the questions were some asking whether they had heard
about draft-ietf-dnsop-dnssec-dps-framework (then at version -03).
Of the 19 respondents, 17 had heard about the draft and 13 had used it
as a check list of DNSSEC readiness and/or an outline to create such a

There was a concern about a possible copyright issue, but only in
respect to a pre-RFC5378 RFC. Parts of RFC 3647 have been used in the
draft, so the authors have contacted the authors of RFC 3647 requesting
permission to use text from it. All who have replied (four out of five)
have given that permission.
