This document describes the Trust Anchor Management Protocol (TAMP). TAMP may be used to manage the trust anchors and community identifiers in any device that uses digital signatures; however, this specification was written with the requirements of cryptographic modules in mind. For example, TAMP can support signed firmware packages [RFC4108], where the trust anchor public key can be used to validate digital signatures on firmware packages or validate the X.509 certification path [RFC5280][X.509] of the firmware package signer.

Trust Anchor Management Protocol (TAMP)
This document describes a transport independent protocol for the management of trust anchors (TAs) and community identifiers stored in a trust anchor store. The protocol makes use of the Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS), and a digital signature is used to provide integrity protection and data origin authentication. The protocol can be used to manage trust anchor stores containing trust anchors represented as Certificate, TBSCertificate, or TrustAnchorInfo objects.
