Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG
To: IETF-Announce Cc: RFC Editor , sidr mailing list , sidr chair Subject: Protocol Action: 'The Profile for Algorithms and Key Sizes for use in the Resource Public Key Infrastructure' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-sidr-rpki-algs-05.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'The Profile for Algorithms and Key Sizes for use in the Resource Public Key Infrastructure' (draft-ietf-sidr-rpki-algs-05.txt) as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Secure Inter-Domain Routing Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Stewart Bryant and Adrian Farrel. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-sidr-rpki-algs/
Technical Summary This document defines a profile for the algorithm and key size to be used for signatures applied to certificates, Certificate Revocation Lists, and signed objects in the context of the Resource Public Key Infrastructure. Working Group Summary The profile for algorithm and key size was originally part of the certificate profile. The working group realized that this information might be used in other drafts as well, so for ease of reference a separate document was produced. Furthermore, using a separate document for this profile means that future changes in the algorithm requirements will no longer require a revision to the referring documents. Document Quality This document is well written and clear. Although this profile does not define a protocol, several independent implementations of the certificate profile exist, which would also involve implementing this algorithm profile, indicating careful review. Personnel Sandra Murphy is the Document Shepherd for this document. Stewart Bryant is the Responsible Area Director.
