Technical Summary

  This document defines two X.509v3 certificate extensions.  The first
  extension binds a list of IP address blocks, or prefixes, to the
  subject of a certificate.  The second extension binds a list of
  autonomous system identifiers to the subject of a certificate.  These
  extensions may be used to convey the authorization of the subject to
  use the IP addresses and autonomous system identifiers contained in
  the extensions.
