ACSP Suggestion 2023.17: Allow Third-Party ROA Creation by Block


Author: Mike Burns   
Submitted On: 26 October 2023

Description: Allow third-party ROA creation by block, not by Organization. Currently an organization can allow a third-party to create ROAs, but that authority extends to all the organization’s blocks. Some organizations may wish to enable this capability but only for a subset of their resources.

Value to Community: The community sees the good in RPKI growth, and this is an impediment in circumstances where a portion of an organization’s resources are leased-out and a lease manager seeks to automate ROA actions, which can only happen if blanket authority is granted to the lease manager to create ROAs for all the registrant organization’s resources.
