In any of the various IPv6 fora (including v6ops at the IETF) "DNS
Whitelisting" is how this practice is typically labeled. When writing the
draft I felt this could be confusing outside of IPv6 circles and so
lengthened it to "IPv6 DNS AAAA Whitelisting" in the title.
In any case, "I don't like what it is called" is difficult to act on. ;-)
If there are recommendations on alternatives, I'm all ears.
I would prefer a name that indicated that it was the resolvers that are
From the draft:
When implemented, DNS whitelisting in practice means that a domain's
authoritative DNS will return a AAAA resource record to DNS recursive
resolvers [RFC1035] on the whitelist, while returning no AAAA
resource records to DNS resolvers which are not on the whitelist.
The AAAA records aren't thr things being whitelisted.
How about "IPv6 DNS Resolver Whitelisting"
or "IPv6 AAAA DNS Resolver Whitelisting"
