RPKI RRDP Service Degradation

Posted: Thursday, 11 August 2022

Incident window : 11:20 AM - 12:50 PM ET on 11 August 2022

This morning, ARIN renewed SSL certificates within our infrastructure that caused suboptimal performance of the RPKI RRDP services run by ARIN.

  • At 11:20 AM ET, a configuration management change installed a new certificate and keys on nodes that serve the RPKI RRDP repository. A subset of these nodes received a mismatched CA certificate and key. This triggered the degraded performance of the RPKI RRDP services.
  • At 11:45 AM, repository generation was paused during the process of diagnosing the issue.
  • At 12:05 PM, the misconfigured nodes were identified and removed from DNS rotation.
  • At 12:40 PM, new CA certificates and keys had been pushed to the impacted systems and they were returned to DNS rotation.
  • At 12:50 PM, after confirmation that the systems were running normally, the repository generation was restarted and full functionality of the RPKI RRDP services was restored

RPKI rsync services were fully functional throughout the incident.

The publication of 6 ROAs were delayed during the incident.
