Re: using IRR tools for BGP route filtering
Are there any plans to correlate route registry objects against address registry databases? I believe that one of the roots of this thread is the need to validate the legitimacy of not only routes, but registered route objects. Although it is too much to expect that route objects will match up cleanly with address block assignments at the outset, performing such a correlation would at least identify the scope of the problem. It's not all that simple to do, although certainly some of the trash could be deleted, since it's not always the organisation "owning" the address space that announces it. Some process that compares the IR registry view to the current routing table view might be "better" but who would take on that task and under what mandate as its one thing to find the problems but it's an entirely different problem to actually fix it? Mark.
