OpenBGPD 7.8 released

Updated: Mar 18, 2023

OpenBGPD 7.8 has been released, which will be arriving in the OpenBGPD directory of your local OpenBSD mirror soon.


This release includes the following changes to the previous release:


  • Improved performance by optimising the output filters

  • Add Autonomous System Provider Authorization (ASPA) validaton based on draft-ietf-sidrops-aspa-verification-12

  • Introduce avs (ASPA validation state) filter and bgpctl filter argument

  • Add ASPA support for the RTR protocol based on draft-ietf-sidrops-8210bis-10

  • Improve open policy (RFC 9234) support and enable the capability automatically if a role is specified for the peer

  • Introduce a per neighbor role configuration option to specify the session role used by ASPA verification and the open policy capability. The announce policy statement was simplified at the same time.

  • Improve startup behaviour by introducing a small delay before opening the connection to a new peer

  • Support for aspa-set table config which can be provided by rpki-client

  • Make it possible to filter the RIB by invalid and leaked prefixes in bgpctl and bgplgd

  • Add OpenMetrics output to bgpctl for various BGP statistics and add /metrics endpoint to bgplgd

  • Support the pftable attribute set on FreeBSD systems


OpenBGPD-portable is known to compile and run on FreeBSD and the Linux distributions Alpine, Debian, Fedora, RHEL/CentOS and Ubuntu. 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.
