Bork Bork Bork?
So Tony Bates sends out the CIDR report as usual...184.108.40.206 possibly a bogus route...so I check out RADB...BORK BORK BORK...huh? route: 192.0.0.0/2 descr: QUARTER-DEFAULT-ONE descr: The Reasonable Default Route Project descr: This prefix is one of three which is designed descr: to accomplish several things. Firstly, ICM descr: will be offering a set of robust and hardened descr: default-oriented prefixes which will be made descr: reliably available to some of AS1800's peers and descr: things downstream from them. The routing announcements descr: will be supplemented with a box that sends back descr: appropriate ICMP messages; at some point we will descr: also make a view of the default-announcing box's descr: knowledge of global routing available to folks descr: who wish to accept the default announcement. descr: Secondly, this announcement is designed to assist descr: ANS in the transition away from advisories. We expect descr: that this will allow people to send in far fewer descr: advisory updates than is done currently, without descr: breaking reachability between ANS's customers and descr: the rest of the world. This is good for both ANS descr: and everyone else. descr: BORK BORK BORK FREE THE INTERNET BORK BORK BORK descr: Thirdly, ICM will be running some experiments on descr: sheer amount of traffic that follows an ultimate descr: default, although this must be done without descr: examining that traffic for content without explicit descr: permission from the originator. We expect that this descr: will help serve as a tool to identify and correct descr: problems in the global routing system. descr: questions, comments and flames to: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org origin: AS1800 advisory: AS690 1:1800 2:1239 mnt-by: MAINT-AS1800 changed: email@example.com 980508 source: RADB -JERM
