Glossary

 Canonical
Standard or typical. For IPv6 and DNS, it represents a standard textual representation format.
 Child Object
This object is one level down (more specific) in a hierarchy of INETNUM or INET6NUM objects
 Child objects are more specific
Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are structured in hierarchies with 0/0 and ::/0 as the roots of the structures. The root objects have child objects forming the next layer in the hierarchical structure. The root objects are therefore the parents of the child objects. This is repeated throughout the structure as more layers are added. Parent objects are considered to be less specific than the child objects. Child objects are considered to be more specific to the parent objects.
