I'd say uRPF/loose is one way to do it on some platforms. In JunOS for
longest time it was not possible, and in default config it still is
not, as source route pointing to null does not fail uRPF/loose check.
However JunOS has had ~always SCU (I compare it to QPPB in CSCO) which
can be used to implement source based RTBH, without use of uRPF. It
likely out-performs uRPF/loose massively, as you don't have to do two
LPM lookups.
