This document defines a profile for the structure of the Resource
Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) distributed repository.  Each individual
repository publication point is a directory that contains files that
correspond to X.509/PKIX Resource Certificates, Certificate Revocation Lists
and signed objects.  This profile defines the object (file) naming scheme, the
contents of repository publication points (directories), and a
suggested internal structure of a local repository cache that is
intended to facilitate synchronization across a distributed
collection of repository publication points and to facilitate
certification path construction.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
