This short presentation is meant to solicit NANOG community feedback on one aspect of Internet routing: the adoption of the Resource Public Key Infrastructure framework to increase the security of routing announcements. RPKI promises to reduce the widespread costs that mistaken and malicious routing announcements impose on network operators and their customers. Yet adoption rates are low—especially in North America. Why has RPKI adoption been more widespread in Europe and Latin America than in North America? Are there legal barriers to adoption that might be surmounted? I am part of a team from the University of Pennsylvania Law School that is conducting interviews across the routing community to better understand the barriers to RPKI adoption. Ultimately, we will produce a report aimed to stimulate discussion and action. Before doing so, we are interested in hearing from anyone in the NANOG community who has experience with RPKI, procurement of similar services, or simply is interested in the subject. Our work is funded by NSF Award #1748362, Legal Barriers to Securing the Routing Architecture.
