OpenBGPD 6.9p0 released

OpenBGPD 6.9p0 has been released, which will be arriving in the OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon. It includes the following changes:

  • Introduced bgpd(8) rde evaluate all to reduce path hiding in IXP route-server environments.

  • Added RTR support to OpenBGPD.

  • Added bgpctl(8) show rtr to display basic information about RTR sessions.

  • Added bgpctl(8) show sets to display information about the roa-set, as-sets and prefix-sets loaded into bgpd(8).

  • Properly implemented rde med compare strict in bgpd(8) and ensured that the order of prefixes is always correct.

  • Introduced the bgpd.conf(5) per neighbor and global config option reject as-set yes/no to allow rejection of received UPDATES with AS_SET segments. These rejected prefixes can be viewed with bgpctl show rib in error.

  • No longer allow configuration of the same neighbor multiple times.

  • Introduced a send hold timer in bgpd(8) to detect stalls on the sending side of a TCP connection, acting as a last resort to detect faulty peers.

  • pf(4) tables track now prefixes correctly even when received by multiple sessions.

OpenBGPD-portable is known to compile and run on FreeBSD, and the Linux distributions Debian, Ubuntu and Alpine Linux. It is our hope that packagers take interest and help adapt OpenBGPD-portable to more distributions.

We welcome feedback and improvements from the broader community. Thanks to all of the contributors who helped make this release possible.
