5. Draft RIPE NCC Activity Plan 2012
The RIPE NCC Executive Board welcomes any input about the Draft RIPE NCC Activity Plan 2012 prior to and during the General Meeting November 2011.

The RIPE NCC Executive Board acknowledges that there are different opinions on the implications of the Certification/RPKI activities of the association. Therefore, the RIPE NCC Executive Board puts forward two alternative options, according to which:

  • The RIPE NCC will discontinue the Certification/RPKI activities of the association (Option A); or

  • The RIPE NCC will continue operating and developing the RPKI, but without the ability to create Routing Origin Authorisation objects (ROAs) (Option B).

If neither Option A nor Option B is approved, the RIPE NCC will continue the current Certification/RPKI activities of the association, including the creation of Routing Origin Authorisation objects (ROAs).

Option A

The formal resolution:

WHEREAS the General Meeting has been asked by the Executive Board to give direction on the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI)/Certification activities of the association,

WHEREAS the Certification activity has been outlined in the RIPE NCC Activity Plan for the last five years with no negative feedback from the membership,

WHEREAS the General Meeting has heard support from the community and the membership for operating and further developing the RPKI,

WHEREAS the General Meeting has heard the discussion in the RIPE community over recent months and in particular at the previous RIPE Meeting,

WHEREAS the General Meeting has heard concerns from some that the autonomy of the members to set and implement their routing policy might be reduced by the RPKI,

WHEREAS the General Meeting has heard requests to get detailed information about the reasons for potential revocation of certificates,

WHEREAS the General Meeting has heard concerns about the necessity of harmonisation of cryptographic tools and algorithms used with local legislation in different countries,

WHEREAS the General Meeting has heard concerns that the routing infrastructure might experience operational threats when the RPKI is deployed,

THEREFORE:

  • The General Meeting directs the Executive Board to instruct RIPE NCC staff to discontinue the RPKI/Certification activities of the association, including the RIPE NCC Certification Service as well as any software development and maintenance, after final wrap-up and packaging.

  • The General Meeting also orders the Executive Board to instruct RIPE NCC staff to make the package available to the other RIRs, which shared the development cost, and to revoke any RPKI Certificate issued through the RIPE NCC Certification Service as well as to delete created Routing Origin Authorisation objects (ROAs).

  • The General Meeting acknowledges that other stakeholders may seek other parties to take over RPKI/Certification activities for the RIPE NCC service region.

If Option A is not adopted, the RIPE NCC Executive Board puts forward the following resolution:
