Phase 2 shall cover the following activities.



BPKI certificates

· In NMRP the applicant shall specify whether they will use RPKI. If yes, then after resource issuance, they will be invited to generate their BPKI certificate(s). Invitation could be manually sent or via automated notification or banner inside myafrinic


· Similar to route(6) creation, we shall have a wizard. Auto creation is not feasible.

· Members can opt to auto-renew an existing or new roa upon expiry

· Expiry period of each roa shall be configurable by the member

Inconsistency dashboard

Display warnings in the dashboard when

· No existing route(6) objects for resource member (with ASN and IPv4 or IPv6)

· if another Route object is created with different ASN on another IRR

Support for Other IRR objects

Allow members to manage (create update or delete) the following IRR objects in MyAFRINIC

· Route-set

· Inet-rtr

· Filter-set

· Peering-set

· Rtr-set

The schedule for phase 2 shall be shared once we have finalised our activity plan and projects for 2020.

We shall communicate to the DBWG in the event of any adjustments to the time lines or planned activities.
Documentation of the REST API will also be shared once it’s ready.
