Re: BGP Security and PKI Hierarchies
It's hard to imagine an organization who can afford to run a network using BGP to announce a class C block and not be able to afford $1250 per year.The Internet != for-profit-only corporate netspace.In that case, the organization is not an ISP which means that they are not growing which means that they don't need as much of ARIN's services, therefore they can swap their class C block for an ARIN /24 and only pay $100 as an end user. Presumably ARIN could be convinced to waive the one-time initial allocation fee in this case since the initial allocation happened years ago. Then, having joined the club that 99% of us belong to, they won't have any problems with using newer services like BGP cert signing.
The problem is *because* they are not ISP and don't have a clue they'll use a lot of ARINs services. "Why doesn't this work, how do I do that..." RIPE started requiring the x-ncc-regid thing in email partly because of the newbie and clueless crowd. -- Andre
