This document defines a standard profile for X.509 certificates for
the purpose of supporting validation of assertions of "right-of-use"
of Internet Number Resources (INRs).  The certificates issued under
this profile are used to convey the issuer's authorization of the
subject to be regarded as the current holder of a "right-of-use" of
the INRs that are described in the certificate.  This document
contains the normative specification of Certificate and Certificate
Revocation List (CRL) syntax in the Resource Public Key
Infrastructure (RPKI).  This document also specifies profiles for the
format of certificate requests and specifies the Relying Party RPKI
certificate path validation procedure.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
