rpki-client 8.6 released

rpki-client 8.6 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:


  • A compliance check was added to ensure the X.509 Subject only contains commonName and optionally serialNumber.

  • A compliance check was added to ensure the CMS SignedData and SignerInfo versions to be 3.

  • Fisher-Yates shuffle the order in which Manifest entries are processed. Previously, work items were enqueued in the order the CA intended them to appear on a Manifest. However, there is no obvious benefit to third parties deciding the order in which things are processed. Now the Manifest ordering is randomized (as the order has no meaning anyway), and the number of concurrent repository synchronization operations is limited & timeboxed.

  • Various refactoring work.


rpki-client works on all operating systems with a libcrypto library

based on OpenSSL 1.1 or LibreSSL 3.5, a libtls library compatible

with LibreSSL 3.5 or later, and zlib.


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.
