This document describes how to use information associated with a
trust anchor public key when validating certification paths.  This
information can be used to constrain the usage of a trust anchor.
Typically, constraints are used to limit the certificate policies and
names that can appear in certification paths validated using a trust
anchor.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.
