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

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.

The mirrors where rpki-client can be found are on
