ARIN has issued its initial response to ACSP Suggestion 2014.6. The 
suggestion and response text are provided below. This suggestion remains 
open and is available at:



Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Suggestion: *

Allow creation of RPKI ROAs with an origin of AS0.

Rationale: Some prefixes are never intended to be injected into the 
global routing table. Specifically IXP LAN prefixes. By creating an ROA 
for AS0, this would create an invalid signature for any announcement.


Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2014.6 upon receipt and 
confirmation, requesting that we allow for the creation of RPKI ROAs 
with an origin of AS 0.

You raise an excellent point. RFC 6483 section 4 specifically describes 
AS 0 origination, and it was an oversight in ARIN's RPKI implementation 
not to allow it. We will be correcting our RPKI system to include this 
core feature by the end of Q2. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

This suggestion will remain open until this work is completed. This will 
take 1.5 person months. Please note that these are good-faith, general 
estimates to include development, testing, and implementation; as such 
they are subject to change.
