1.0 Certification of Provider Aggregatable (PA) Allocation

Following guidelines are to apply only for certification of Provider Aggregatable (PA) address space allocations that are held by the RIPE NCC members in good standing.

The RIPE NCC will issue certificates upon request for RIPE NCC supplied Provider Aggregatable (PA) address space allocations to the LIR that is the registered holder of that space.

The certificate will be issued via a secure channel.

Certificates will be issued with a validity period of up to 18 months or as otherwise stated in the RIPE NCC Certificate Practice Statement.

In the event of revocation due to security breach or similar, new certificates will be issued with a validity period equal to the remaining validity of the revoked certificate.

Certificates will at all times reflect the registration status of the resource.
