we would be happy to collaborate to deploy and extend the ARTEMIS 
open-source software tool

for monitoring, detection and potential automated mitigation of prefix 

available on GitHub at .

Current monitoring sources include RIS live, BGPStream (classic RV + RIS 
and beta BMP support) and ExaBGP APIs to local monitors.

You are most welcome to check out the code and test, provide feedback 
and/or integrate with existing custom tools you might use.

Best regards,
