If BGPSec is not around to protect the path, it would work/help. (I think this is what Matthias was saying, also, which makes this a +1.) Also - current best practice to protect origination is to use route filters based on some IRR or the other. In the current world, the DDoS mitigator has the same problem - to authoritatively originate the affected more specific prefix, the mitigator has to wait for propagation from the IRR. I’ve been told one strategy is to have a large collection of peers who understand that they should be forgiving of the announcements from the mitigator. [And the bad-guys know this as well. Lots of cases where the mis-origination is registered in some IRR or the other. And in some cases, the explanation from the embarrassed upstream of the mis-originator was that they were told the mis-originator was a DDoS mitigator.] That same large-number-of-very-understanding-peers strategy works for DDoS mitigation in an RPKI OV world. I’m not advocating that strategy, by the way. —Sandy > Some providers can siphon off the victim IP addresses to scrubber > devices within the confines of the autonomous system - and the outside > world (the DFZ) never sees these more-specifics.
