18 May, 2020 by firstname.lastname@example.org | openbsd
rpki-client 6.7 has just been released and will be available in the rpki-client directory of any OpenBSD mirror soon. rpki-client is a FREE, easy-to-use implementation of the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) for Relying Parties (RP) to facilitate validation of the Route Origin of a BGP announcement. The program queries the RPKI repository system and outputs Validated ROA Payloads in the configuration format of OpenBGPD, BIRD, and also as CSV or JSON objects for consumption by other routing stacks. See RFC 6811 for a description of how BGP Prefix Origin Validation secures the Internet's global routing system. rpki-client was primarily developed by Kristaps Dzonsons, Claudio Jeker, Job Snijders, and Sebastian Benoit as part of the OpenBSD Project and gets released as a base component of OpenBSD every six months, and follows the OpenBSD release numbering scheme. This is the first release of the 6.7 version. It includes the follwoing changes to the previous release: * Document the suggested interval for running rpki-client in man page. * Always initialize cachedir and outputdir. * Print statistics as comments at the top of the output files which can take comments, including the date and time when the files were produced, and runtime statistics when producing them. * Improve log messages to clarify what's happening. * Fix a bug where rpki-client would not properly wait for exiting rsync processes, causing rpki-client to hang. The mirrors where rpki-client can be found are on https://www.rpki-client.org/portable.html Reporting Bugs: =============== General bugs may be reported to email@example.com Portable bugs may be filed at https://github.com/rpki-client/rpki-client-portable We welcome feedback and improvements from the broader community.
