RPKI/BGP Intelligence Consultation Extended Until 8 March

Posted: Friday, 01 March 2024

ARIN is extending our ongoing consultation regarding proposed improvements to our Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) services until Friday, 8 March.

We are seeking feedback from our community regarding the level of information presented to the user when they are utilizing ARIN’s Hosted RPKI product. Currently, when ARIN customers create Route Origin Authorizations (ROAs) in ARIN Online, they are presented only with the information in the ROA and need to use third-party tools to predict the global routing table impact of creating the ROA.

ARIN is planning to add functionality to a new RPKI dashboard that will allow our users to view the current RPKI validity state and the resulting impact to routing for the resources covered by the ROA. This will enable users to make more informed decisions about creating ROAs before confirming the changes and without leaving ARIN Online. Note that this functionality will only be available to those customers who use ARIN Online; ARIN API users will need to use third-party tools to collect the information.

We believe adding this functionality would benefit ARIN customers, enable network operators to make better informed routing decisions, and enhance routing security for the Internet community. As of 1 March, ARIN has received limited feedback from our community on this proposed development.

We are seeking more input from our community for any additional information or capabilities that should be included, especially from those members who utilize ARIN’s Hosted RPKI service. The feedback and suggestions you provide during this consultation will be instrumental in determining how ARIN moves forward with routing security improvements.

You may review the original consultation, published on 30 January, at https://www.arin.net/participate/community/acsp/consultations/2024/2024-1/.

Please provide comments to arin-consult@arin.net. You may subscribe to this mailing list at https://lists.arin.net/mailman/listinfo/arin-consult.

This consultation will remain open until 5:00 PM ET on Friday, 8 March. We hope you will take advantage of this additional time to share your thoughts on this pending improvement.

Thank you for your continued support to improve ARIN’s routing security services.
