This document describes a new resource record for the Domain Name
System (DNS).  This record may be used to store public keys for use
in IP security (IPsec) systems.  The record also includes provisions
for indicating what system should be contacted when an
IPsec tunnel is established with the entity in question.

This record replaces the functionality of the sub-type #4 of the
KEY Resource Record, which has been obsoleted by RFC 3445.
