That would be ... surprising.  While I have always had some questions regarding the political (not technical) feasibility of actually deploying secure routing based on the top-down hierarchical model assumed by RPKI, it seems obvious to me that there needs to be a better way to authenticate allocation data other than querying a whois server.  RPKI will (would have?) provided this and the actual deployment of RPKI would allow the ops community to gain experience with the technology.

pls express this to your local BoT or AC or ARIN Rep... see the other thread.

thanks!
