any serious work in that direction being done.
This would be much easier if we had a bottom-up
hierarchical addressing structure rather than the
current top-down one.
Consider the distribution of cryptographically
authenticated connectivity maps a la NIMROD or a
multi-level LS protocol, for example, for path
authentication vs. how one would distribute and
authenticate reachability information with the
current addressing structure.
