I'd be interested to hear your opinions on exactly how rpki in its current
implementation would have prevented the optus/telstra problem. Could you
Here's a quote from draft-ietf-sidr-origin-ops:
As the BGP origin AS of an update is not signed, origin validation is
open to malicious spoofing. Therefore, RPKI-based origin validation
is designed to deal only with inadvertent mis-advertisement.
Origin validation does not address the problem of AS-Path validation.
Therefore paths are open to manipulation, either malicious or
An optus/telstra style problem might have been mitigated by an rpki based
full path validation mechanism, but we don't have path validation. Right
now, we only have a draft of a list of must-have features -
draft-ietf-sidr-bgpsec-reqs. This is only the first step towards designing
a functional protocol, not to mind having running code.
