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 Raw Pubic Key
   [RFC7250] 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 are defined in order to secure
   communications in vehicular environments.  Existing certificates,
   such as X509 and Raw Pubic Key, are designed for Internet use,
   particularly for flexibility and extensibility, and are not optimized
