RIPE NCC RPKI Repository Outage
Between 01:00 on 2 Feb - 03:45 on 3 Feb (UTC+1), the RIPE NCC RPKI repository suffered an outage on Saturday, 2 Feb 2013 that lasted for several hours. The outage was caused by a problem in our RPKI system that degraded performance to a point where the publication for all 1300+ Member CAs combined took more than 24 hours. This meant the CRLs and manifests for some CAs expired before they republished.
We would like to assure you that the RIPE NCC takes this incident very seriously. The bug that triggered the error has been fixed and we are making sure the robustness of the system is improved. We are also taking steps to ensure that the scaling of the system keeps pace with the adoption by our members.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
