Note

This part of the project is currently being built. Documentation will likely change significantly as the software evolves.

Certificate Authority

This implementation allows operators to run their own Certificate Authority (CA) as a child of a Regional Internet Registry or a different parent, such as a National Internet Registry (NIR) or Enterprise. The CA will allow operators to generate their own cryptographic material, including all certificates and ROAs.

The software will support running the CA both upwards and downwards. Upwards means that operators can have multiple parents, such as ARIN, RIPE NCC, etc., simultaneously and transparently. Downwards means that the CA can issue to child organisations or customers who, in turn, run their own CA.

There is no running code at this time, so there is no documentation yet.
