This document defines a strategy to securely assign a pledge to an
owner using an artifact signed, directly or indirectly, by the
pledge's manufacturer.  This artifact is known as a "voucher".

This document defines an artifact format as a YANG-defined JSON
document that has been signed using a Cryptographic Message Syntax
(CMS) structure.  Other YANG-derived formats are possible.  The
voucher artifact is normally generated by the pledge's manufacturer
(i.e., the Manufacturer Authorized Signing Authority (MASA)).

This document only defines the voucher artifact, leaving it to other
documents to describe specialized protocols for accessing it.

This document is a product of the Autonomic Networking Integrated Model and Approach Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the
