This document defines a framework for certificate management
interactions between an Internet Number Resource issuer ("issuer")
and an Internet Number Resource recipient ("subject") through the
specification of a protocol for interaction between the two parties.
The protocol supports the transmission of requests from the subject,
and corresponding responses from the issuer encompassing the actions
of certificate issuance, certificate revocation, and certificate
status information reports.  This protocol is intended to be limited
to the application of Internet Number Resource Certificate management
and is not intended to be used as part of a more general certificate
management framework.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
