This document defines a standard profile for X.509 certificates [X.509] for use in the context of certification of Internet Number Resources (INRs), i.e., IP Addresses and Autonomous System (AS) numbers. Such certificates are termed "resource certificates". A resource certificate is a certificate that conforms to the PKIX profile [RFC5280], and that conforms to the constraints specified in this profile. A resource certificate attests that the issuer has granted the subject a "right-of-use" for a listed set of IP addresses and/or Autonomous System numbers.

              A Profile for X.509 PKIX Resource Certificates


   This document defines a standard profile for X.509 certificates for    the purpose of supporting validation of assertions of "right-of-use"    of Internet Number Resources (INRs).  The certificates issued under    this profile are used to convey the issuer's authorization of the    subject to be regarded as the current holder of a "right-of-use" of    the INRs that are described in the certificate.  This document    contains the normative specification of Certificate and Certificate    Revocation List (CRL) syntax in the Resource Public Key    Infrastructure (RPKI).  This document also specifies profiles for the    format of certificate requests and specifies the Relying Party RPKI    certificate path validation procedure.
