Hi Sascha, all I see this as a real possibility for the longer term. But realistically it is not going to help with the situation in the near future. I see some think that RADB is already a 'central DB' whereas others in this thread have said they would not use RADB (don't know it that is for technical, political or reliability issues). Just to throw a wild idea into the pot on this. If we were to look into the possibility of a centralised database, at least for the three RIRs who use a common database root RIPE, APNIC, Afrinic, then to me it makes sense to have a common, public database for operational data not only for routing information but also for number resource information. Then such a common database could do proper authentication. Almost certainly the personal data referenced by the operational data would need to remain in separate regional databases for privacy and data protection reasons. From the point of view of managing globally unique resources it makes perfect sense. But I suspect there would be lots of opposition to such a suggestion for political and self preservation reasons from many directions. Bearing in mind that any such suggestion would takes years from an idea to reality, I don't think we should get too bogged down in discussing this as part of this thread. However, several people have mentioned the idea of proper management of global resources. So perhaps if someone feels the desire to raise the issue in Dubai and formally call for the start of a serious investigation process that could lead to a common operational database, then the ball will at least start rolling.... cheersdenisco-chair DB WG From: Sascha Luck [ml] via db-wg <db-wg at ripe.net> To: denis walker <ripedenis at yahoo.co.uk> Cc: Database WG <db-wg at ripe.net> Sent: Wednesday, 11 October 2017, 16:21 Subject: Re: [db-wg] Foreign ROUTE objects in RIPE Database - final decision?

Is an option D: create a central IRRDB with authentication hooks into all RIRs completely out of the question? It certainly sounds like the technologically most elegant answer. Modulo legacy resources, no unauthenticated irrdb objects should then have to exist. The trust root could be shared between the RIRs as is seemingly done with RPKI these days... cheers, Sascha Luck -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
