ACSP Suggestion 2021.4: Offer Publication Server/Repository for Delegated RPKI


Author: Rich Compton   
Submitted On: 01 April 2021

Description: I’d like for ARIN to offer an RPKI service like APNIC has where the prefix holder (like Charter) would have a delegated CA for creating ROAs but the publication server / repository would be hosted by ARIN.

Value to Community: Prefix holders could run the CA (such as Krill) which has less availability requirements but not have to maintain the infrastructure for the publication server / repository which has high availability requirements. This should speed the adoption of delegated CAs.

Timeframe: Not specified

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2021.4 upon receipt, suggesting that ARIN offer a publication server/repository for delegated RPKI. ARIN does not support a hosted publication server/repository for organizations that chose to run their own Delegated CA at this time. We recognize this may be a desirable alternative for an organization that does not have the resources to run this kind of high-availability system. We will take your request under consideration for potential future development.

Thank you for participating in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process. Your suggestion will remain open while we will take your request under consideration.
