Technical Summary BGPsec-speaking routers are provisioned with private keys in order to sign BGPsec announcements. The corresponding public keys are published in the global Resource Public Key Infrastructure, enabling verification of BGPsec messages. This document describes two methods of generating the public-private key-pairs: router-driven and operator-driven. Working Group Summary This document started out in the SIDR Working Group (in 2012), and was successfully WGLCed there (2017-04-05). It took some time to address comments, and the document was moved from SIDR (under Alvaro) to SIDROPS when the SIDR WG was shut down (2018-09-06). The consensus in SIDR was good, in SIDROPS there've been no objections. Document Quality The document is well written and easily read. Personnel Chris Morrow is DS Warren Kumari is RAD!
