               Certification Authority (CA) Key Rollover in              the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI)


   This document describes how a Certification Authority (CA) in the    Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) performs a planned rollover    of its key pair.  This document also notes the implications of this    key rollover procedure for relying parties (RPs).  In general, RPs    are expected to maintain a local cache of the objects that have been    published in the RPKI repository, and thus the way in which a CA    performs key rollover impacts RPs.
