I know of two network operators that signed their routes within 24 hours after Ben gave his talk.  Well done to you as well.  😊

On that, if anyone has signed routes, could you please let me know how the process was for you? Easy, hard or did you buy someone a beer to do it for you?

Subject: [CINX.announce] RPKI ROV & Dropping of Invalids - Africa

Hello all.

In November 2018 during the ZAPF (South Africa Peering Forum) meeting in Cape Town, 3 major ISP's in Africa announced that they would enable RPKI's ROV (Route Origin Validation) and the dropping of Invalid routes as part of an effort to clean up the BGP Internet, on the 1st April, 2019.

On the 1st of April, Workonline Communications (AS37271) enabled ROV and the dropping of Invalid routes. This applies to all eBGP sessions for IPv4 and IPv6.

On the 5th of April, SEACOM (AS37100) enabled ROV and the dropping of Invalid routes. This applies to all eBGP sessions with public peers, private peers and transit providers, both for IPv4 and IPv6. eBGP sessions toward downstream customers will follow in 3 months from now.

We are still standing by for the 3rd ISP to complete their implementation, and we are certain they will communicate with the community accordingly.

Please note that for the legal reasons previously discussed on various fora, neither Workonline Communications nor SEACOM are utilising the ARIN TAL. As a result, any routes covered only by a ROA issued under the ARIN TAL will fall back to a status of Not Found. Unfortunately, this means that ARIN members will not see any improved routing security for their prefixes on our networks until this is resolved. We will each re-evaluate this decision if and when ARIN's policy changes. We are hopeful that this will happen sooner rather than later.

If you interconnect with either of us and may be experiencing any routing issues potentially related to this new policy, please feel free to reach out to:

    - noc at workonline.africa<mailto:noc at workonline.africa>
    - peering at seacom.mu<mailto:peering at seacom.mu>

Workonline Communications and SEACOM hope that this move encourages the rest of the ISP community around the world to ramp up their deployment of RPKI ROV and dropping of Invalid routes, as we appreciate the work that AT&T have carried out in the same vein.

In the mean time, we are happy to answer any questions you may have about our deployments. Thanks.

Mark Tinka (SEACOM) & Ben Maddison (Workonline Communications).
