Installation

RIPE NCC provides a total of four options for installations:

CentOS

We have set up a repository with CentOS 7 RPMs for Prod builds. You can add the repository to your system as follows:

sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://ftp.ripe.net/tools/rpki/validator3/prod/centos7/ripencc-rpki-prod.repo

You might have to install ‘yum-utils’ first:

sudo yum install yum-utils

Install the RPKI Validator:

sudo yum install rpki-validator

Install the RPKI-RTR Server:

sudo yum install rpki-rtr-server

Run and enable the services:

sudo systemctl enable rpki-validator-3
sudo systemctl start rpki-validator-3
sudo systemctl enable rpki-rtr-server
sudo systemctl start rpki-rtr-server

To monitor the logs:

sudo journalctl -f -u rpki-validator-3
sudo journalctl -f -u rpki-rtr-server

The RPKI Validator 3.1 will be running on http://localhost:8080/

The RPKI-RTR Server will be running on http://localhost:8081/

You can also explore the API at http://localhost:8080/swagger-ui.html

Debian

The Debian packages for the RPKI Validator and RPKI-RTR Server can be found at: https://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/tools/rpki/validator3/prod/deb/

Download the suitable package and proceed with the installation:

Install the RPKI Validator:

sudo apt install ./rpki-validator-3-latest.deb

Install the RPKI-RTR Server:

sudo apt install ./rpki-rtr-server-latest.deb

Run and enable the services:

sudo systemctl enable rpki-validator-3
sudo systemctl start rpki-validator-3
sudo systemctl enable rpki-rtr-server
sudo systemctl start rpki-rtr-server

To monitor the logs:

sudo journalctl -f -u rpki-validator-3
sudo journalctl -f -u rpki-rtr-server

The RPKI Validator 3.1 will be running on http://localhost:8080/

The RPKI-RTR Server will be running on http://localhost:8081/

You can also explore the API at http://localhost:8080/swagger-ui.html

Generic build

You can find generic production builds at: https://ftp.ripe.net/tools/rpki/validator3/prod/generic/ Download the suitable package and unpack it.

To run the RPKI Validator generic build:

./rpki-validator-3.sh

To run the RPKI-RTR generic build:

./rpki-rtr-server.sh

The RPKI Validator 3.1 will be running on http://localhost:8080/

The RPKI-RTR Server will be running on http://localhost:8081/

You can also explore the API at http://localhost:8080/swagger-ui.html

Docker

To run the Centos/RPM based image with systemd:

docker pull  ripencc/rpki-validator-3-docker:latest
docker run --privileged --name rpkival -p 8080:8080 -d ripencc/rpki-validator-3-docker:latest

To run the generic alpine based image:

docker pull  ripencc/rpki-validator-3-docker:alpine
docker run --name validator-3-alpine -p 8080:8080 -d ripencc/rpki-validator-3-docker:alpine

The RPKI Validator 3.1 will be running on: http://localhost:8080/

More info can be found at https://hub.docker.com/r/ripencc/rpki-validator-3-docker

Extra TALs

By default, the Validator will have Trust Anchor Locators (TALs) installed for AFRINIC, APNIC, LACNIC, RIPE NCC, but not ARIN.

You can download the ARIN TAL at https://www.arin.net/resources/manage/rpki/tal/

Any of the formats will work, but the “RIPE NCC RPKI Validator format” will ensure that the TAL will have a friendly name like “ARIN”.

You can use the following script to upload it:

./upload-tal.sh arin-ripevalidator.tal http://localhost:8080/

The script should be in the root folder if you unpacked the generic build, or in /usr/bin if you installed it using RPM/Debian package.

Alternatively, you can put extra TAL files to the preconfigured-tals directory of the RPKI Validator installation. This directory is scanned on the start and all the parseable TALs are picked up for validation. For the RPM/Debian package installation the directory is /var/lib/rpki-validator-3/preconfigured-tals/.
