Presentation: Community Update on RPKI-ROA Adoption
Tuesday, 5 March, 11:40 AM-12:00 PM CT
Presented by: John Sweeting, ARIN Chief Customer Officer

Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) is a voluntary service offered by the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) to prevent inadvertent misconfigurations and intentional IP address hijacking. It introduces a cryptographic mechanism that allows an Internet number resource holder to assertively declare the origin of a prefix(es) disseminated to the Internet, a practice known as Route Origin Authorization (ROA).

The adoption of RPKI empowers operators with an additional dataset to make more informed routing decisions. This not only limits the consequences arising from human error or malevolent activities but also curbs the broader scope for attempted hijacks on the Internet at large. Additionally, discussions are taking place in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to develop enhancements to RPKI such as Autonomous System Provider Authorization (ASPA), that will continue to offer better protection from bad actors. Join us as ARIN’s Chief Customer Officer provides an update on RPKI-ROA adoption and the latest developments at ARIN aimed at enhancing the user experience for RPKI adopters.
