Re: BGP Security and PKI Hierarchies (was: Re: Wifi Security)

According to what I understand, there have to be two certificates per
entity:

	one is the CA-bit enabled certificate, used to sign subsidiary
	certificates about resources being given to other people to use.

	the other is a self-signed NON-CA certificate, used to sign
	route assertions you are attesting to yourself: you make this
	cert using the CA cert you get from your logical parent.
