In order to increase security at our Internet Exchanges, DE-CIX will deploy RPKI at the DE-CIX route servers. As the combination of RPKI and Blackholing might increase the operational burden, we are working on a deployment solution that works best for our customers. There are three options that are currently being discussed, and more details on the plans can be found here. Feedback from DE-CIX customers is highly appreciated. And even more security topics: A newly recorded webinar from the DE-CIX Academy about BGP security is now available.
