Yep, but saw only reference of it, but no real CLI implementation
(especially on Cisco), so I guess it's not a killer feature to sell
In 2005 :
"A third phase is currently under way that will create a way to have
strict enforcement of the uRPF check on individual ISP-ISP edges. Here,
external BGP (eBGP) peer sessions will send specific prefixes to a
dedicated Virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) table. This will allow
uRPF to query the VRF table that contains all the routes for that
specific eBGP peering session over the interface, thus verifying
(authorizing) the source addresses of packets matching the advertised
routes from the peered ISP"
That's obviously not so sexy, but I guess the problem is on hardware
performance, as the prefer method should to have a look on BGP tables,
and uRPF is done on FIB / ASIC level. Sadly, seems not possible right ?
