I don't think it's necessarily going to be possible to _prevent_ attackers from showing up and sending out bogus routing messages.   However, what we probably _can_ do is to be able to know which router sent which update, so that we can see, if there is an attack, where it is coming from.

It would be good to game this out more, though.   We had a pretty good discussion in the meeting, and I think I sent out a summary message about it afterwards, but we haven't gone past that.
