1.  Introduction

   "An Infrastructure to Support Secure Internet Routing" [RFC6480]
   directs IANA [RFC2860] to issue Resource Public Key Infrastructure
   (RPKI) objects for which it is authoritative.  This document
   describes the objects IANA will issue.  If IANA is directed to issue
   additional RPKI objects in future, this document will be revised and
   a new version issued.

   The signed objects described here that IANA will issue are the
   unallocated, reserved, special use IPv4 and IPv6 address blocks, and
   the unallocated and reserved Autonomous System numbers.  These number
   resources are managed by IANA for the IETF; thus, IANA bears the
   responsibility of issuing the corresponding RPKI objects.  The reader
   is encouraged to consider the technical effects on the public routing
   system of the signed object issuance proposed for IANA in this
   document.

   This document does not deal with BGP [RFC4271] routing systems, as
   those are under the policy controls of the organizations that operate
   them.  Readers are directed to "Local Trust Anchor Management for the
   Resource Public Key Infrastructure" [TA-MGMT] for a description of
   how to locally override IANA issued objects, e.g., to enable use of
   unallocated, reserved, and special use IPv4 and IPv6 address blocks
   in a local context.
