 A Publication Protocol for the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI)


   This document defines a protocol for publishing Resource Public Key    Infrastructure (RPKI) objects.  Even though the RPKI will have many    participants issuing certificates and creating other objects, it is    operationally useful to consolidate the publication of those objects.    Even in cases where a certificate issuer runs its own publication    repository, it can be useful to run the certificate engine itself on    a different machine from the publication repository.  This document    defines a protocol which addresses these needs.
