Re: So -- what did happen to Panix?

Thus spake <Michael.Dillon@btradianz.com>
seems to me that certified validation of prefix ownership and as
path are the only real way out of these problems that does not
teach us the 42 reasons we use a *dynamic* protocol.
Wouldn't a well-operated network of IRRs used by 95% of
network operators be able to meet all three of your
requirements?
We have such a database (used by Verio and others), but the Panix incident happened anyway due to bit rot. We've got to find a way to fix the layer 8 problems before we can make improvements at layer 3.
