Hi John,

So along the risk line with whois at one end and spam RBLs at the other, RPKI sounds almost identical to the risk of deploying DNSSEC. Or am I missing something that makes RPKI more risky?

Bill -

    You asked for a comparison between whois and RPKI in terms of
    risk profile and I provided that.   ARIN doesn’t run spam RBLs, but
    you can seek out those who do and ask them why they think that
    may be more risky than RPKI services, if you so wish.
