Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) Validation for IP Addresses
                       draft-shoemaker-caa-ip-01

Abstract

   The Certification Authority Authorization (CAA) RFC specifies a
   method for users to restrict which Certificate Authorities (CAs) are
   authorized to issue certificates for their DNS domain names.  This
   document extends that specification to provide a method for holders
   of IP addresses to do the same.

1.  Introduction

   This document describes an extension to RFC 6844 [RFC6844] which
   allows for the use of Certification Authority Authorization DNS
   Records to be used to restrict issuance of certificates to IP
   addresses instead of just DNS names.  This is done by defining a new
   lookup mechanism for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses as previously a
   mechanism only existed for DNS names.

2.  Terminology

   In this document, the key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED",
   "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY",
   and "OPTIONAL" are to be interpreted as described in BCP 14, RFC 2119
   [RFC2119].

3.  Mechanism

   Before issuing a certificate containing a IP address a compliant CA
   MUST check for the relevant CAA Resource Record set.  If such a
   record set exists a CA MUST NOT issue a certificate unless the
   records in the set are consistent with the request and the policies
   of the CA.

   A certificate request MAY specify more than one IP address in which
   case CAs MUST verify the CA Resource Record set for all the IP
   addresses specified in the request.

   As defined in RFC 2818 [RFC2818] IP addresses in certificates must
   match exactly with the requested URI so CAs MUST NOT consider CAA
   records with the "issuewild" tag to be part of the relevant Resource
   Record set for a IP address.

   Unlike the mechanism defined in RFC 6844 [RFC6844] this mechanism
   doesn't involve climbing the DNS tree and only requires querying a
   single DNS name.  The relevant Resource Record set for a given IP
   address is found by querying the reverse mapping zone for the IP for
   CAA records.

Internet-Draft                   CAA-IP                   September 2017


   Given a certificate request containing the IPv6 address "2001:db8::1"
   the relevant query for the reverse mapping within the IP6.ARPA
   [RFC3596] zone would be:

1.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.8.b.d.0.1.0.0.2.ip6.arpa. IN CAA

   And for a request containing the IPv4 address "192.0.2.1" the
   relevant query for the reverse mapping within the IN-ADDR.ARPA
   [RFC1034] zone would be:

   1.2.0.192.in-addr.arpa. IN CAA

   When doing queries CAs SHOULD either use a resolver that chases CNAME
   records or manually chase CNAMEs themselves in order to allow for
   zone delegations [RFC2317].

4.  IANA Considerations

4.1.  Certification Authority Restriction Properties

   Change the contents of the Meaning column for the "issue" Tag to say
   "Authorization Entry by Domain or IP address" and add "draft-
   shoemaker-caa-ip" to the References column.
