Abstract

   This document contains a set of updates to the base syntax of
   Certificate Management Protocol (CMP) version 2.  This document
   updates RFC 4210.

   Specifically, the CMP services updated in this document comprise:
   Enable protection of server-side key generation using elliptic curve
   algorithms and the definition of an extended key usage to identify
   certificates of CMP endpoints on registration authorities and
   certification authorities.

1.  Introduction

   While using CMP [RFC4210] in industrial and IoT environments and
   developing the Lightweight CMP Profile
   [I-D.brockhaus-lamps-industrial-cmp-profile] some limitations were
   identified in the original CMP specification.  This document updates
   RFC 4210 [RFC4210] to overcome these limitations.

   In general this document aims to improve the crypto agility of CMP to
   be flexible to react on future advances in cryptography.

   This document also introduces a new extended key usage to identify
   CMP services on registration and certification authorities.

   < TBD: While implementing CMP we identified some wording that could
   be more precise.  It can be discussed if such wording issued need to
   be addressed in the context of this document or not. >
