Technical Summary

   This document defines a Trust Anchor Locator (TAL) for the Resource
   Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI).  This document obsoletes RFC6490 by
   adding support for multiple URIs in a TAL.

Working Group Summary

   The multi-URI format was suggested in the draft 
   draft-ietf-sidr-multiple-publication-points.  The draft was 
   presented at four IETFs (IETF84-IETF87) and there were comments on the 
   mailing list.

   The working group felt that the feature of providing multiple
   publication points was a benefit for trust anchors, but that the
   appropriate way to represent that would be to modify RFC6490.

Document Quality

   An IETF presentation of the draft-ietf-sidr-multiple-publication-points-01
  (from which this extended format was taken) noted that it had
  been tested against all three known implementations.  Two
  implementers recently confirmed that this is the case.
