Abstract

   This document specifies a base profile for X.509 v3 Certificates and
   X.509 v2 Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) for use with the United
   States National Security Agency's Commercial National Security
   Algorithm (CNSA) Suite.  The reader is assumed to have familiarity
   with RFC 5280, "Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure Certificate
   and Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Profile".

1.  Introduction

   This document specifies a base profile for X.509 v3 Certificates and
   X.509 v2 Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) for use by applications
   that support the United States National Security Agency's Commercial
   National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Suite [CNSA].

   This profile of [RFC5280] applies to all CNSA Suite solutions that
   make use of X.509 v3 Certificates or X.509 v2 CRLs.  The reader is
   assumed to have familiarity with RFC 5280.  All MUST-level
   requirements of RFC 5280 apply throughout this profile and are
   generally not repeated here.  In cases where a MUST-level requirement
   is repeated for emphasis, the text notes the requirement is "in
   adherence with RFC 5280".  This profile contains changes that elevate
   some MAY-level options in RFC 5280 to SHOULD-level and MUST-level in
   this profile; this profile also contains changes that elevate some
   SHOULD-level options in RFC 5280 to MUST-level for this profile.  All
   options from RFC 5280 that are not listed in this profile remain at
   the requirement level of RFC 5280.

   The reader is also assumed to have familiarity with these documents:
