rpki-client 7.9 released
14 July, 2022 by firstname.lastname@example.org | openbsd
rpki-client 7.9 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 BGP announcements. The program queries the global RPKI repository system and validates untrusted network inputs. The program outputs validated ROA payloads and BGPsec Router keys in configuration formats suitable for OpenBGPD and BIRD, and supports emitting CSV and JSON for consumption by other routing stacks. See RFC 6480 and RFC 6811 for a description of how RPKI and BGP Prefix Origin Validation help secure the global Internet routing system. rpki-client was primarily developed by Kristaps Dzonsons, Claudio Jeker, Job Snijders, Theo Buehler, Theo de Raadt and Sebastian Benoit as part of the OpenBSD Project. This release includes the following changes to the previous release: - Add support for an operator-configurable skiplist facility. Operators can specify a list of FQDNs which should not be contacted when synchronizing the local cache to the network. - Emit a warning when a RRDP session serial number decreases. - DER decoding functions were refactored to leverage ASN.1 templates. - Add support to validate & inspect .sig files containing RPKI Signed Checklists in filemode (-f). (draft-ietf-sidrops-rpki-rsc-08) - Print various statistics after the completion of the main process. - Add support to decode & print TAL (RFC 8630) details in filemode (-f). - Emit objects in Concatenated JSON format when filemode (-f) and the JSON output flag (-j) are combined. rpki-client works on all operating systems with a libcrypto library based on OpenSSL 1.1 or LibreSSL 3.5, and a libtls library compatible with LibreSSL 3.5 or later. rpki-client is known to compile and run on at least the following operating systems: Alpine, CentOS, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, Red Hat, Rocky, Ubuntu, macOS, and of course OpenBSD! It is our hope that packagers take interest and help adapt rpki-client-portable to more distributions.
