        RFC 7909

        Title:      Securing Routing Policy Specification Language

This document describes a method that allows parties to
electronically sign Routing Policy Specification Language objects and
validate such electronic signatures.  This allows relying parties to
detect accidental or malicious modifications of such objects.  It
also allows parties who run Internet Routing Registries or similar
databases, but do not yet have authentication (based on Routing
Policy System Security) of the maintainers of certain objects, to
verify that the additions or modifications of such database objects
are done by the legitimate holder(s) of the Internet resources
mentioned in those objects.  This document updates RFCs 2622 and 4012
to add the signature attribute to supported RPSL objects.

This document is a product of the Secure Inter-Domain Routing Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.

This announcement is sent to the IETF-Announce and rfc-dist lists.
