   RPS Security [2] requires certain RPSL [1] objects in the IRR to be
   hierarchically delegated.  The set of objects that are at the root of
   this hierarchy needs to be created and digitally signed by IANA. This
   paper presents these seed objects and lists operations required from

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.

1 Initial Seed

   A public key of IANA needs to be distributed with the software
   implementations of Distributed Routing Policy System [3].  An initial
   set of seed objects are needed to be signed with this key.  The
   following transaction (the transaction format is defined in [3])
   contains these objects and is signed by this key:

   The above text has no extra white space characters at the end of each
   line, and contains no tab characters.  All blank line sequences
   contain only a single blank line.  The page break in the text is also
   a single blank line.

   In this case, we assumed that IANA runs its own repository.  However
   this is not a requirement.  Instead, it may publish this transaction
   with an existing routing registry.

2 IANA Assignments

   Each time IANA makes an assignment, it needs to create inetnum and
   as-block objects as appropriate and digitally sign them using the key
   in its key-cert object.  For example:
