[rpd] Last Call - RPKI ROAs for Unallocated and Unassigned AFRINIC Address Space AFPUB-2019-GEN-006-DRAFT03.

Thu Jul 22 07:16:48 UTC 2021

Hi Owen,

I don’t know, as many in the list, all the details and the real “true” (not one side, not the other), about the recent case.

However, what I can say is that AFRINIC indicated in this case, that they will keep the resources in use for additional 3 months so customers aren’t impacted.

Following the policy text, this is exactly the same thing. If there is a disagreement and then a recovery, until the recovery is “final” (the 3 months I just mention) the resources will not be incorporated in the AS0.

The recent case, demonstrated that it works, because in case of a dispute, you can still ask the courts, in the worst case, to take a position.

It is not true, we have responded perfectly to each of the questions, may be is a lack of knowledge, but the RPD is not a training team, and despite that, we have responded to much more than it is in the scope of the RPD.

The RIR is not injecting anything that should not. If you read RFC6486, you will understand it. Then you can make more concrete and coherent questions, not false information.

While I generally support the idea of AS0 ROAs, I have to say that there is a risk that has not been directly addressed.

This policy assumes that the RIR operates in good faith and does not act in violation of a members rights or its own policies and other governing documents.

Since we have, now, a clear example of AFRINIC doing exactly that, in violation of a court order even, I must urge caution in adopting this policy in this region until such time as we can be assured that AFRINIC has been restored to a good working order and will not further engage in disruptive revocations and terminations without good cause.

It is impossible to respond with a better answer to questions that come from untrue statements and lack of knowledge.

Nothing I have said above represents either a lack of knowledge or an untrue statement.

I fully support AS0 ROAs for legitimately unallocated space issued by RIRs acting in good faith.

Unfortunately, at this time, I have no confidence that AFRINIC meets that test.
