Network Working Group A.L. Newton Internet-Draft ARIN Updates: 6487 (if approved) G.I.H. Huston Intended status: Standards Track APNIC Expires: November 10, 2013 May 09, 2013 Policy Qualifiers in RPKI Certificates draft-ietf-sidr-policy-qualifiers-00 Abstract This document updates RFC 6487 by clarifying the inclusion of policy qualifiers in the certificate policies extension of RPKI resource certificates.

Terminology The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119]. 2. Update to RFC 6487 [RFC6487] profiles certificates, certificate revocation lists, and certificate signing requests specified in [RFC5280] for use in routing public key infrastructure. [RFC5280] defines an extension to certificates for the listing of policy information (See section 220.127.116.11). [RFC6487] states in Section 4.8.9: "This extension MUST be present and MUST be marked critical. It MUST include exactly one policy, as specified in the RPKI CP [RFC6484]". This references the CertPolicyId of the sequence allowed in PolicyInformation as defined by [RFC5280]. [RFC5280] also specifies that PolicyInformation may optionally have a sequence of PolicyQualifierInfo objects. [RFC6487] does not specifically allow or disallow these PolicyQualifierInfo objects although it also states in section 4: "Unless specifically noted as being OPTIONAL, all the fields listed here MUST be present, and any other fields MUST NOT appear in a conforming resource certificate." This document updates [RFC6487], Section 4.8.9, as follows: OLD: This extension MUST be present and MUST be marked critical. It MUST include exactly one policy, as specified in the RPKI CP [RFC6484]. NEW: This extension MUST be present and MUST be marked critical. It MUST include exactly one policy, as specified in the RPKI CP Newton & Huston Expires November 10, 2013 [Page 2] Internet-Draft RPKI Policy Qualifiers May 2013 [RFC6484]. Exactly one policy qualifier MAY be included. If a policy qualifier is included, the policyQualifierId MUST be the CPS pointer qualifier type (id-qt-cps). As noted in [RFC5280], section 18.104.22.168: "Optional qualifiers, which MAY be present, are not expected to change the definition of the policy." In this case any optional policy qualifiers that MAY be present in a resource certificate MUST NOT change the definition of the RPKI CP [RFC6484]. 3. IANA Considerations None. 4. Security Considerations The Security Considerations of [RFC6487] apply to this document. This document updates the RPKI certificate profile to specify that the certificate policies extension can include a policy qualifier, which is a URI. Checking of the URI might allow denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, where the target host may be subjected to bogus work resolving the URI. However, this specification, like [RFC5280], places no processing requirements on the URI included in the qualifier. 5. Acknowledgements Frank Hill and Adam Guyot helped define the scope of this issue and identified and worked with RPKI validator implementers to clarify the use of policy qualifiers in resource certificates. Sean Turner provided significant text to this document regarding the processing of the CPS URI and limiting the scope of the allowable content of the policy qualifier. 6.
