Technical Summary

   Deployment of RPKI-based BGP origin validation is hampered by, among
   other things, vendor mis-implementations in two critical areas: which
   routes are validated and whether policy is applied when not specified
   by configuration.  This document is meant to clarify possible
   misunderstandings causing those mis-implementations; and thus updates
   RFC6811 by clarifying that all prefixes should be marked, and that
   policy must not be applied without operator configuration"

Working Group Summary

   From the Document Shepherd report:
   'WG discussion was solid, fun and filled with non-tears.'
    :-)

Document Quality

   The document is very clear and easy to understand, even for those unfamiliar with the technology.
   It simply clarifies things.
