Do I have to buy a new router in order to use RPKI?

No. Several router vendors are committed to offering the ability to use RPKI data in router hardware as a free update. This consists of two parts:

  1. The validation software that runs on a separate system can feed the processed RPKI data directly into an RPKI-capable router.
  2. You can create policies such as route-maps based on the three RPKI validity states: Valid, Invalid and Unknown.
