The announcement reads,
rpki-client 8.0 has just been released and will be available in the rpki-client directory of any OpenBSD mirror soon. rpki-client is a FREE, easy-to-use implementation of the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) for Relying Parties (RP) to facilitate validation of BGP announcements. The program queries the global RPKI repository system and validates untrusted network inputs. The program outputs validated ROA payloads, BGPsec Router keys, and ASPA payloads in configuration formats suitable for OpenBGPD and BIRD, and supports emitting CSV and JSON for consumption by other routing stacks.
See RFC 6480 and RFC 6811 for a description of how RPKI and BGP Prefix Origin Validation help secure the global Internet routing system. rpki-client was primarily developed by Kristaps Dzonsons, Claudio Jeker, Job Snijders, Theo Buehler, Theo de Raadt and Sebastian Benoit as part of the OpenBSD Project. This release includes the following changes to the previous release: * Add suport for validating Autonomous System Provider Authorization (ASPA) objects conforming to draft-ietf-sidrops-aspa-profile-10. Validated ASPA payloads are visible in JSON and filemode (-f) output. * Set rsync connection I/O idle timeout to 15 seconds. * Unify the maximum idle I/O and connect timeouts for RSYNC & HTTPS. * Rpki-client now performs stricter EE certificate validation: - Disallow AS Resources extensions in ROA EE certificates. - Disallow Subject Information Access (SIA) extensions in RPKI Signed Checklist (RSC) EE certs. - Check the resources in ROAs and RSCs against EE certs. * Improve readability and add various information being printed in verbose mode. * Extend filemode (-f) output and print X.509 certificates in PEM format when increased verbosity (-vv) is specified. * Shorten the RRDP I/O idle timeout. * Introduce a deadline timer that aborts all repository synchronization after seven eights of timeout (-s). With this rpki-client has improved chances to complete and produce an output even when a CA is excessivly slow. * Abort a currently running RRDP request process when the per-repository timeout is reached. * Permit multiple AccessDescription entries in SIA X.509 extensions. While fetching from secondary locations is not yet supported, rpki-client will not treat occurence as a fatal error. * Resolve a potential for a race condition in non-atomic RRDP deltas. * Fix some memory leaks. * Improve compliance with the HTTP protocol specification. rpki-client works on all operating systems with a libcrypto library based on OpenSSL 1.1 or LibreSSL 3.5, and a libtls library compatible with LibreSSL 3.5 or later. rpki-client is known to compile and run on at least the following operating systems: Alpine, CentOS, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, Red Hat, Rocky, Ubuntu, macOS, and of course OpenBSD! It is our hope that packagers take interest and help adapt rpki-client-portable to more distributions. The mirrors where rpki-client can be found are on https://www.rpki-client.org/portable.html Reporting Bugs: =============== General bugs may be reported to email@example.com Portable bugs may be filed at https://github.com/rpki-client/rpki-client-portable We welcome feedback and improvements from the broader community. Thanks to all of the contributors who helped make this release possible. Assistance to coordinate security issues is available via firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is an important step forward for increased security in the routing infrastructure that underlies the working internet.
Thanks to the developers for the work that went into the new version!
