> DANE (DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities) is an IETF group that is working on
specifying how to add public keys to DNSSEC as described in their charter
> http://tools.ietf.org/wg/dane/charters
> Their latest draft spec is here http://tools.ietf.org/wg/dane/
> DANE support should enable browsers to minimally authenticate servers that use self signed
certs. There are 3 times more such servers  CA based ones. Putting a self signed cert in the
DNS should be a lot simpler a procedure than going through CAs. There is a firefox plugin
already to test this in a browser: ie the browser should not longer show the DANGER error
messages when coming across such sites. 
> This is an interesting research topic with the following requirements:
>  - It would require DNSSEC libraries in Java. 
>  - It be useful if apache.org was had a DNSSEC presence (it may have, I don't know how
to check)
>  
> Two use cases:
>  - make clerezza TLS requests Dane aware
>  - make it easy on booting Clerezza to add public key to DNS
>
