AAAA records to be added for root servers

On 4 February 2008, IANA will add AAAA records for the IPv6 addresses
of the four root servers whose operators have requested it. A
technical analysis of inserting IPv6 records into the root has been
done by a joint working group of ICANN's Root Server System Advisory
Committee and Security and Stability Advisory Committee, a report of
which can be found at
http://www.icann.org/committees/security/sac018.pdf. Network operators
should take whatever steps they feel appropriate to prepare for the
inclusion of AAAA records in response to root queries.

More information will be posted to the IANA web site during January.
