Re: AS8584 taking over the internet

  • From: Mr. Dana Hudes

It is such accidents that reinforce the notion of per-prefix
filtering.
Of course if one changes one's IRR/RIPE DB/RADB entries to
deliberately
announce the world there could still be a problem with
auto-generated
accept policy. The solution to *that* is quality assurance of the
database, an ongoing issue in RIPE DB WG at least.

Even then how does one prevent someone coding 'ANY' for their
announce policy when they should not? In the old NFSNET days
human inspection of IRR entries assured quality but that's not
practical anymore at a central registry. 

sure, one has accept policy but other than excluding RFC1918 and
your own address space and default you have no practical choice
but to reference the other guy's aut-num object and the
associated routes.
