Technical Summary

In the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI), resource
certificates completely obscure names or any other information which
might be useful for contacting responsible parties to deal with
issues of certificate expiration, maintenance, roll-overs,
compromises, etc.  This draft describes the RPKI Ghostbusters Record
containing human contact information which may be verified
(indirectly) by a CA certificate.  The data in the record are those
of a severely profiled vCard.
