IETF Documents

Most of the original work on RPKI standardisation for both origin and path validation was done in the Secure Inter-Domain Routing (sidr) working group. After the work was completed, the working group was concluded.

Since then, the SIDR Operations (sidrops) working group was formed. This working group develops guidelines for the operation of SIDR-aware networks, and provides operational guidance on how to deploy and operate SIDR technologies in existing and new networks.

All relevant drafts and standards can be found in the archives of these two working groups, with a few exceptions, such as draft-ietf-grow-rpki-as-cones.
