Initially the implementation team was thinking that it would be useful to have the ability to offer the same set of SLURM files to all RPs deployed in a network, where local config of the RP would then evaluate the applicability of each file. However, now that both implementations progressed we reconsider and we feel that it would be better to deal with this on the provisioning side. I.e. only offer the SLURM file(s) relevant to each RP. > Section 3.5 (both subsections): > > "is locally configured with" does not mention SLURM at all as being > involved in that configuration; perhaps it should. > We authors are going to make changes as follows: 3.5.1: OLD: Each RP is locally configured with a (possibly empty) array of ROA Prefix Assertions. NEW: SLURM file(s) can be used to configure an RP with a (possibly empty) array of ROA Prefix Assertions. And similarly in 3.5.2 OLD: Each RP is locally configured with a (possibly empty) array of BGPsec Assertions. NEW: SLURM file(s) can be used to configure an RP with a (possibly empty) array of BGPsec Assertions. > Section 4.2 > > [...] To do so, the RP MUST > check the entries of SLURM file with regard to overlaps of the INR > assertions and report errors to the sources that created these SLURM > files in question. > > The "report errors to the sources" part seems ineligible for > MUST-level requirement. > > Also, in case of conflict, does the "MUST NOT use them" apply to all > SLURM files, only the ones with directly conflicting inputs, or only > enough files to remove the conflict? There is a MAY in the first sentence after all. We will add in this section that ‘The RP gets multiple SLURM files as a set, and the whole set MUST be rejected in case of any overlaps between SLURM files.' > > Section 6 > > I'm always a little sad to see security-relevant functionality (such > as the transport with authenticity and integrity protection of SLRUM > files over the network) left as out of scope with no examples of > reasonable usage given. > We authors intend to work on a proposed standard mechanism for updating SLURM files through a secure API in the near future.

It could declare as invalid ROAs that would otherwise be valid, and vice versa. As a result, an RP must carefully consider the security implications of the SLURM file being used, especially if the file is provided by a third party.' It is not clear to us what more we should cover here. Di _______________________________________________ sidr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/sidr
