Detailed Description

Record type used to box up SRV and TLSA records.

For example, a TLSA record for "_https._tcp.foo.gnu" will be stored under "foo.gnu" as a BOX record with service 443 (https) and protocol 6 (tcp) and record_type "TLSA". When a BOX record is received, GNS unboxes it if the name contained "_SERVICE._PROTO", otherwise GNS leaves it untouched. This is done to ensure that TLSA (and SRV) records do not require a separate network request, thus making TLSA records inseparable from the "main" A/AAAA/VPN/etc. records.
