Ahh, this is I think the customer "leak" problem I'm trying to illustrate
that an RPKI/BGPSEC-enabled world alone (as currently prescribed)
does NOT protect against.
If it can happen by accident, it can certainly serve as smoke screen or
enable an actual targeted attack quite nicely by those so compelled.
and things when further downhill from there, when telstra also did not
filter what they announced to their peers, and the peers went over
prefix limits and dropped bgp.
Prefix limits are rather binary and indiscriminate, indeed.
