1. Introduction

   This document updates the "Internet X.509 Public Key Infrastructure
   Certificate and Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Profile" [RFC5280].

   After the first SHA-1 collision in 2017-02-23 [SHATTERED], hash
   collisions are expected to get more efficient and affordable. In the
   near future, SHA-1 may not suffice for identification of keys as keys
   with colliding hashes may be generated.

2. Updates to RFC 5280

   In addition to the two methods defined in Section 4.2.1.2 of RFC 5280,
   a third method is defined below that generates the value of the
   keyIdentifier from the public key:

   The keyIdentifier is composed of the 256-bit SHA-256 hash of the value
   of the BIT STRING subjectPublicKey (excluding the tag, length and
   number of unused bits).

3. Security Considerations

   This document adds capabilities for using more secure technology with
   pre-existent standards, and therefore has no security implications.

4. IANA Considerations

   This document has no actions for IANA.
