Abstract

   This document specifies the algorithms, algorithm parameters,
   asymmetric key formats, asymmetric key size and signature format used
   in BGPsec (Border Gateway Protocol Security).  This document updates
   the Profile for Algorithms and Key Sizes for use in the Resource
   Public Key Infrastructure (ID.sidr-rfc6485bis).

1.  Introduction

   This document specifies:
      o the digital signature algorithm and parameters;
      o the hash algorithm and parameters;
      o the public and private key formats; and,
      o the signature format
   used by Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) Certification
   Authorities (CA), and BGPsec (Border Gateway Protocol Security)
   speakers (i.e., routers).  CAs use these algorithms when processing
   requests for BGPsec Router Certificates [ID.sidr-bgpsec-pki-
   profiles].  BGPsec routers use these algorithms when requesting
   BGPsec certificates [ID.sidr-bgpsec-pki-profiles], signing BGPsec
   Update messages [ID.sidr-bgpsec-protocol], and verifying BGPsec
   Update messages [ID.sidr-bgpsec-protocol].

   This document is referenced by the BGPsec specification [ID.sidr-
   bgpsec-protocol] and the profile for BGPsec Router Certificates and
   Certification Requests [ID.sidr-bgpsec-pki-profiles].  Familiarity
   with these documents is assumed.  Implementers are reminded, however,
   that, as noted in Section 2 of [ID.sidr-bgpsec-pki-profiles], the
   algorithms used to sign CA Certificates, BGPsec Router Certificates,
   and CRLs are found in [ID.sidr-rfc6485bis].

   This document updates [ID.sidr-rfc6485bis] to add support for a) a
   different algorithm for BGPsec certificate requests, which are issued
