Abstract

This document describes the certificate policy for a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) used to attest to Internet Number Resource (INR) holdings (IP addresses or Autonomous System (AS) numbers). An organization that distributes INRs to another organization MAY, in parallel, issue a (public key) certificate reflecting this distribution. These certificates will enable verification that the resources indicated in the certificate have been distributed to the holder of the associated private key and that this organization is the current holder of these resources.

Abstract

   This document describes the certificate policy for a Public Key    Infrastructure (PKI) used to support attestations about Internet    Number Resource (INR) holdings.  Each organization that distributes    IP addresses or Autonomous System (AS) numbers to an organization    will, in parallel, issue a (public key) certificate reflecting this    distribution.  These certificates will enable verification that the    resources indicated in the certificate have been distributed to the    holder of the associated private key and that this organization is    the current, unique holder of these resources.
