Downloading objects

This section describes downloading objects from ICAO PKD.

To import objects from ICAO PKD, the objects first need to be downloaded. As explained in the document ICAO PKD New Interface Specification, NPKD objects are organized in the following branches:

  • Data branch (dc=data)
    • Country branch (c=<country>)
      • Master list branch (o=ml)
      • Deviation list branch (o=dl)
      • DS certificate branch (o=ds)
      • CRL branch (o=crl)
  • Non-conformant data branch (dc=nc-data)
    • Country branch (c=<country>)
      • Master list branch (o=ml)
      • Deviation list branch (o=dl)
      • DS certificate branch (o=ds)
      • CRL branch (o=crl)
  • Registry branch (dc=registry)
    • Country branch (c=<country>)
      • Organization (o=<organization>)

NPKD downloading options are available on the Import PKD Content page under the Download from ICAO tab.
