Some of the bad things may affect us, as globally we failed to adopt RPKI*
and  to improve the IRR and the Whois.

Many dormant and weak protected records shall exist here as well.  Many
password-only protected records. I get worried when i saw people arguing
that removing BPKI certificate for accessing certain function on myAFRINIC
make it  easy to use. How and when are we  educating and pushing people to
use strong authentication/authorisation mechanisms when managing critical
ressources ?
