Details

The back end would be responsible for validating signatures on a set of DNS records, given the necessary chain of DNS records to do so. It would be completely distinct from the networking layer so that the DNS records themselves could be potentially retrieved over a non-DNS transport. For example, the records might be retrieved over HTTPS from a server similar to the safe browsing server.
Note: this back-end would potentially be used on servers and in the browser.
