This document provides several certificate policy identifiers for testing certificate handling software. These certificate policy identifiers are not intended for use in the public Internet.
The certificate policy identifiers provided in this document are consistent with the certificate profile specified in [RFC5280]. They are appropriate for testing the certificate policy processing, especially the handling of the certificate policy extension, the policy constraints extension, and the policy mapping extension.
This specification does not identify particular certificate policies for use in the Internet public key infrastructure. The actual policies used for production certificates can have a significant impact on the confidence that one can place in the certificate. No confidence should be placed in any certificate that makes use of these certificate policy identifiers, since they are intended only for testing.
