This document specifies automated bootstrapping of an Autonomic
Control Plane.  To do this, a Secure Key Infrastructure is
bootstrapped.  This is done using manufacturer-installed X.509
certificates, in combination with a manufacturer's authorizing
service, both online and offline.  We call this process the
Bootstrapping Remote Secure Key Infrastructure (BRSKI) protocol.
Bootstrapping a new device can occur when using a routable address
and a cloud service, only link-local connectivity, or
limited/disconnected networks. Support for deployment models with
less stringent security requirements is included. Bootstrapping is
complete when the cryptographic identity of the new key
infrastructure is successfully deployed to the device.  The
established secure connection can be used to deploy a locally issued
certificate to the device as well.

This document is a product of the Autonomic Networking Integrated Model and Approach Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: 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 Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
