We have released OpenBGPD 7.8, which will be arriving in the OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon. This release includes the following changes to the previous release: * Improved performance by optimising the output filters * Add Autonomous System Provider Authorization (ASPA) validaton based on draft-ietf-sidrops-aspa-verification-12 * Introduce avs (ASPA validation state) filter and bgpctl filter argument * Add ASPA support for the RTR protocol based on draft-ietf-sidrops-8210bis-10 * Improve open policy (RFC 9234) support and enable the capability automatically if a role is specified for the peer * Introduce a per neighbor 'role' configuration option to specify the session role used by ASPA verification and the open policy capability. The 'announce policy' statement was simplified at the same time. * Improve startup behaviour by introducing a small delay before opening the connection to a new peer * Support for aspa-set table config which can be provided by rpki-client * Make it possible to filter the RIB by invalid and leaked prefixes in bgpctl and bgplgd * Add OpenMetrics output to bgpctl for various BGP statistics and add /metrics endpoint to bgplgd * Support the pftable attribute set on FreeBSD systems OpenBGPD-portable is known to compile and run on FreeBSD and the Linux distributions Alpine, Debian, Fedora, RHEL/CentOS and Ubuntu. It is our hope that packagers take interest and help adapt OpenBGPD-portable to more distributions. We welcome feedback and improvements from the broader community. Thanks to all of the contributors who helped make this release possible.
