           A Protocol for Provisioning Resource Certificates

Abstract

   This document defines a framework for certificate management
   interactions between an Internet Number Resource issuer ("issuer")
   and an Internet Number Resource recipient ("subject") through the
   specification of a protocol for interaction between the two parties.
   The protocol supports the transmission of requests from the subject,
   and corresponding responses from the issuer encompassing the actions
   of certificate issuance, certificate revocation, and certificate
   status information reports.  This protocol is intended to be limited
   to the application of Internet Number Resource Certificate management
   and is not intended to be used as part of a more general certificate
   management framework.
