1.  Introduction

   This document defines a mechanism called "RPKI validated cache Update
   in SLURM [RFC 8416] over HTTPs (RUSH)", for the use of SLURM in
   updating RPKI cache data over HTTP [RFC7540] using HTTPs [RFC2818]
   URIs (and therefore TLS [RFC8446] security for integrity and
   confidentiality).  Integration with HTTP provides a secure transport
   for distributing cache data, which is in alignment with SLURM file
   format in order to take advantage of using one same API for a cache
   server to do both remote update and local override.

   The RPKI validated cache in this document refers to the validated
   data of assertion information certified by corresponding RPKI signed
   objects such as ROA [RFC6482] and BGPsec router certificate
   [RFC8209], which are transferred from the RPKI cache server to
   routers by RTR protocol [RFC8210] for the use of the RPKI.  While
   this document is intended for the RPKI cache update between two cache
   servers.  SLURM offers a standardized method for describing RPKI
   cache data in JSON format [RFC8259], and SLURM is designed to carry
   out incremental update.

   The primary use of RUSH is to distribute RPKI validated cache within
   an ISP or an ICP composed of a number of ASes.  A small site or
   enterprise network MAY also use RUSH by synchronizing with a third-
   party RPKI cache provider over networks.

   Note that RUSH merely focuses on a standardized transport and data
   format of the RPKI cache data.  RUSH has nothing to do with
   synchronization at the RUSH end system, that is, more sophisticated
   functions such as automatic re-synchronization and access control is
   out of this scope and MAY be left to private implementation.
