NDN, Technical Report NDN-0029, Revision 1: April 20, 2015.

As every data is signed in Named Data Networking (NDN), public key management becomes critical. The public key management requires a well-defined certificate format and several systems and protocols to support certificate distribution and revocation. In this paper, we proposed the new NDN certificate format, discussed several approaches of serving certificates in NDN. We also discuss how to revoke certificates with the new certificate design.
