There are circumstances in RPKI operation where a resource holder's parent may not be able to, or may not choose to, facilitate full and proper registration of the holder's data. As in real life, the holder may form a relationship with their grandparent who is willing to aid the grandchild. This document describes simple procedures for doing so.
