[arin-ppml] Creating a market for IPv4 address space in absence of routing table entry market

Very interested and concerned about the interaction between secure routing and centralization of authority over what has before now been a relatively loose system of routing self-governance by ISPs. I guess I am less worried about IANA and RIRs abusing their authority over a validation chain than I am about governments or lawsuits that force them to do so. Think of DNS and the UDRP.


From: arin-ppml-bounces at arin.net on behalf of Randy Bush

but, to hoist myself on my own petard, are you/folk at all concerned
that, as the rpki becomes used in secure routing, iana and the rirs will
have affect your prefixes routability far more than they do today?

while we are trying to make it so an accidental ops slip at an rpki node
will not damage you if it is corrected in reasonable time, if you piss
off someone up the validation chain (or worse, if someone up the chain
two links pisses someone >2 links up), they can break the validation
chain for your certs/roas.
