Ehm, It's already here, you searched google right?

I finished it 4 months ago. And a number of commercial platforms already support it. Although Owen doesn't like it much.

I really wish there was a more bomb proof "lite" version of the BGP protocol.
- One that has proper authentication not based on a single MD5.
- One that does not allow the client side to define the networks.
- That will only support default routes, it's easier if it can not carry the world.

I think a evolved version of ebgp multihop is workable, but you'd still need some lightweight form of hooking back into the BGP table.

Ideally, ISPs could deploy a number of these route "guides" that would inject the proper route into the real BGP table, but by then it is filtered and the ISP has proper control over what ends up in it. Some ISPs could mark this up as a luxury version.

Perhaps a form of PI bound to country (Exchange) would be a workable solution. So request a piece of "country PI" that is delegated explicitly to the roaming guide(s).
