Abstract

   This document specifies the use of two new certificate types to
   authenticate TLS entities.  The first type enables the use of a
   certificate specified by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
   Engineers (IEEE) [IEEE-ITS] and the second by the European
   Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) [ETSI103097].

1.  Introduction

   At present, TLS protocol uses X509 [RFC5246] and OpenPGP digital
   certificates [RFC6091] in order to authenticate servers and clients.
   This document describes the use of certificates specified either by
   the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
   [IEEE-ITS] or the European Telecommunications Standards Institute
   (ETSI) [ETSI103097].  These standards were defined in order to secure
   communications in vehicular environments.  Existing certificates,
   such as X509 and OpenPGPG, are designed for Internet use,
