BGP Security Research Question

I don't think anyone uses S-BGB or soBGP in the wild--except on Internet2 (debatable whether I2 is in the wild).  Mostly just labs and classrooms...?

We get zmap/nmap/xmap scans on our BGP speakers constantly.  However, most people do a tight lockdown on anything internet-exposed, limiting useful information for most speakers to whatever their prime function is (routing, gathering, reflecting, etc.)

Subject: [EXTERNAL]BGP Security Research Question

I'm a student in college learning about networking and, specifically, BGP.
Does anyone have any statistics on the use of S-BGP or soBGP in the wild?
I've read a few papers / RFCs on the subject (from Cisco and the like), but I haven't been able to find any information about actual usage.

Additionally, do people scan BGP speakers in the same sense that researchers perform scans of the Internet (e.g. zmap)?
