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.
