Hi there,

You are most welcome.

We do monitor more specifics. However, this particular alarm type focuses on matching the upstream of the origin, i.e. YYYY in AS
sequence {XXXX, YYYY, ZZZZ}. This means that the highjacked more specific route would only be detected if announced over someone
else than YYYY. The type of alarm you are implying will become available in the version of myASn that integrates into the RIPE NCC
LIR Portal, for it'll allow the user to monitor IP space originating from any ASN. One of the remaining issues is how to facilitate
users, whom are non-LIRs, with access to the system. We are currently looking into several feasible workarounds. Our aim is to
provide this service to the entire community. Both related and non-related ideas are always welcome ;)

LIR Portal: https://lirportal.ripe.net/lirportal/index.html

I hope above answers your question. There should be a beta of the next version ready for demonstration by the next RIPE meeting in
January. Watch this space for more information. 

Best regards,
Matthew Williams


Ps. I have cc'd Maximo Alves, the developer working on myASn, in case he has something to add.
