Technical Summary When the Public-Key Infrastructure using X.509 (PKIX) Working Group was chartered, an object identifier arc was was allocated by IANA for use by that working group. This document describes the object identifiers that were assigned in that arc, it returns control of that arc to IANA, and it establishes IANA allocation policies for any future assignments within that arc. Working Group Summary This document is related to many RFCs that were produced by the PKIX WG. That WG is closed, but the mail list remains open. The mail list was asked to comment on the document. Supportive responses were received. Tidying this up is a good thing (TM:-) Document Quality The constants in this document have already been assigned, and they are in wide use. Personnel Russ Housley is document author and shepherd. Sean Turner was the responsible Area Director. Stephen Farrell took over. RFC Editor Note In section 3, the count of 31 is wrong, it should be 33, so: OLD: IANA is asked to update one registry table and create 31 additional tables. NEW: IANA is asked to update one registry table and create 33 additional tables.
