This document defines a new form of name, called permanent
identifier, that may be included in the subjectAltName extension
of a public key certificate issued to an entity.

The permanent identifier is an optional feature that may be used
by a CA to indicate that two or more certificates relate to the
same entity, even if they contain different subject name (DNs) or
different names in the subjectAltName extension, or if the name
or the affiliation of that entity stored in the subject or another
name form in the subjectAltName extension has changed.

The subject name, carried in the subject field, is only unique
for each subject entity certified by the one CA as defined by the
issuer name field.  However, the new name form can carry a
name that is unique for each subject entity certified by a CA.

This document is a product of the Public-Key Infrastructure (X.509)
Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
