rpki-client 8.4 released
2 May, 2023 by firstname.lastname@example.org | openbsd
rpki-client 8.4 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, BGPsec Router keys, and ASPA payloads 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: - The synchronisation protocol used to sync the repository is now included in the OpenMetrics output. - In filemode (-f option) the applicable manifests are now shown as part of the signature path. - A new -P option was added to manually specify a moment in time to use when parsing the validity window of certificates. Useful for regression testing. Default is invocation time of rpki-client. - The -A option will now also exclude ASPA data from the JSON output. - Improved accounting by tracking objects both by repo and tal. - For consistency, emit an explicit 'AS 0' Provider entry for ASPAs containing implicit information for one AFI. - Fix missing whitespace in ASPA-set output for OpenBGPD. (This bugfix was also released as OpenBSD 7.3 errata 001.) - Disallow X.509 v2 issuer and subject unique identifiers in certs. RPKI CAs will never issue certificates with V2 unique identifiers. - Check whether products listed on a manifest were issued by the same authority as the manifest itself. 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.
