                    An Out-of-Band Setup Protocol for      Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) Production Services

Abstract

   This note describes a simple out-of-band protocol to ease setup of    the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) provisioning and    publication protocols between two parties.  The protocol is encoded    in a small number of XML messages, which can be passed back and forth    by any mutually agreeable means which provides acceptable data    integrity and authentication.

   This setup protocol is not part of the provisioning or publication    protocol; rather, it is intended to simplify configuration of these    protocols by setting up relationships and exchanging keying material    used to authenticate those relationships.
