Resource Certification (RPKI) for Provider Independent End Users

The RIPE NCC offers Resource Certification (RPKI) as a free, additional service to holders of Provider Independent (PI) End User resources. This page offers an overview of the RPKI requirements, contact information and a link to the wizard to guide you through the process.

A resource certificate can be requested and managed by the PI End User directly or by the Sponsoring LIR, depending on who maintains the organisation object in the RIPE Database.

You will need to meet the following requirements:

  1. An End User Assignment Agreement has been submitted and verified by the RIPE NCC
  2. All RIPE Database resource records match the associated information in the RIPE Registry
  3. You can authenticate against one of the maintainers of the RIPE Database organisation object to which your resource objects refer

If you do not meet all of the above requirements, the Sponsoring LIR should contact the RIPE NCC at in order to resolve this.
