Abstract

   There are circumstances in RPKI operations 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.

1.  Introduction

   There are circumstances in RPKI operations 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.

   An example might be when provider A allowed a child, C, to move to
   other provider(s) and keep their address space, either temporarily or
   permanently, and C's child, G, wished to stay with provider A.

   Or a child, C, in the process of going out of business might place
   their grandchildren in precarious circumstances until they can re-
   home.  The grandparent, without disturbing the child's data, could
   simply issue ROAs for the grandchildren, or issue certificates for
   those willing to manage their own rpki data.

   Certification Authorities with a large number of children, e.g.  very
   large ISPs or RIRs, might offer documented grandparenting processes
   and/or agreements.  This might reassure grandchildren with worries
   about irresponsible parents.

   Other examples occur in administrative hierarchies, such as large
   organizations or military and other government hierarchies, when A's
   child C wishes to manage their own data but does not wish the
   technical or administrative burden of managing their children's, Gs',
   data.
