         New ASN.1 Modules for the Evidence Record Syntax (ERS)
                   draft-housley-ers-asn1-modules-03

Abstract

   The Evidence Record Syntax (ERS) and the conventions for including
   these evidence records in the Server-based Certificate Validation
   Protocol (SCVP) are expressed using ASN.1.  This document offers
   alternative ASN.1 modules that conform to the 2002 version of ASN.1
   and employ the conventions adopted in RFC 5911, RFC 5912, and RFC
   6268.  There are no bits-on-the-wire changes to any of the formats;
   this is simply a change to the ASN.1 syntax.

1.  Introduction

   Some developers would like the IETF to use the latest version of
   ASN.1 in its standards.  This document provides alternative ASN.1
   modules to assist in that goal.

   The Evidence Record Syntax (ERS) [RFC4998] provides two ASN.1
   modules, one using the 1988 syntax [OLD-ASN1], which has been
   deprecated by the ITU-T, and another one using the newer syntax
   [NEW-ASN1], which continues to be maintained and enhanced.  This
   document provides an alternative ASN.1 module that follows the
   conventions established in [RFC5911], [RFC5912], and [RFC6268].

   In addition, [RFC5276] specifies the mechanism for conveying Evidence
   Records in the Server-based Certificate Validation Protocol (SCVP)
   [RFC5055].  There is only one ASN.1 module in [RFC5276], and it uses
   the 1988 syntax [OLD-ASN1].  This document provides an alternative
   ASN.1 module using the newer syntax [NEW-ASN1] and follows the
   conventions established in [RFC5911], [RFC5912], and [RFC6268].  Note
   that [RFC5912] already includes an alternative ASN.1 module for SCVP
   [RFC5055].

   The original ASN.1 modules get some of their definitions from places
   outside the RFC series.  Some of the referenced definitions are
   somewhat difficult to find.  The alternative ASN.1 modules offered in
   this document stand on their own when combined with the modules in
   [RFC5911], [RFC5912], and [RFC6268].

   The alternative ASN.1 modules produce the same bits-on-the wire as
   the original ones.

   The alternative ASN.1 modules are informative; the original ones are
   normative.

4.  IANA Considerations

   IANA is requested to assign two object identifiers from the "SMI
   Security for LTANS Module Identifier" registry to identify the two
   ASN.1 modules in this document.

   The assignment of these object identifiers is requested:

      1.3.6.1.5.5.11.0.1.2    id-mod-ers-v2         [ThisRFC]

      1.3.6.1.5.5.11.0.5.2    id-mod-ers-scvp-v2    [ThisRFC]

   {{{ RFC Editor: Please replace [ThisRFC] with the number
       assigned to this document. }}}

5.  Security Considerations

   Please see the security considerations in [RFC4998] and [RFC5276].
   This document makes no changes to the security considerations in
   those documents.  The ASN.1 modules in this document preserve bits-
   on-the-wire as the ASN.1 modules that they replace.
