The rise of spam and other anti-social behavior on the Internet has
led to the creation of shared blacklists and whitelists of IP
addresses or domains.  The DNS has become the de-facto standard
method of distributing these blacklists and whitelists.  This memo
documents the structure and usage of DNS-based blacklists and
whitelists, and the protocol used to query them.  This document
is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for
informational purposes.

This document is a product of the IRTF.

INFORMATIONAL: This memo provides information for the Internet community.
It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of
this memo is unlimited.
