Resource Certification (RPKI) for Provider Independent End Users and Legacy End Users

The RIPE NCC offers Resource Certification (RPKI) as a free, additional service to holders of Provider Independent (PI) and Legacy 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 Internet number resource holder 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” (for PI) or “Sponsoring LIR Agreement for Legacy Internet Resources (for Legacy) has been submitted and verified by the RIPE NCC

  2. 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.
