SPKI implementation notes & proving the SPKI correct
I'm writing a SPKI implementation. I'm hoping to get it out reasonably
soon (weeks). Carl Ellison is also in process of implementing this.
I'm afraid that a complete implementation of the SPKI certificate
parsing and auth logic is too big to fit in a RFC.
Maybe I (together with everyone interested) should start a "SPKI
Implementation Notes" document ? It would document the standard
algorithms for doing various things and would include some compliance
The main certificate text would define the certificate contents on an
abstract level, while this "implementation notes" or "spki standard
operation" document would bring it down to almost code level.
Maybe we want to have four separate (RFC) documents in the end:
4. Implementation Notes
As the certificate draft alone is currently at 82 pages, the SPKI has
grown beyond simple. And it will apparently continue to grow.
