[RPKI] Accepting smaller routes than RPKI object allows (blackholing)

Matching two different invalid states (incorrect ASN/prefix length) could solve the issue :-)
But I don't think that the router vendors are going to implement this soon.... for now I decided to keep local prefixfilter lists if a customer wants to use advantage of blackholing.

Maybe you can use an export of the VRPs to find the networks for your specific customer ASNs, that you would want to allow them to send /32 or /128 on.

Unfortunately RPKI implementations in the router do not differentiate between invalid_asn and invalid_length (but correct ASN). Otherwise you could have required (rpki valid | rpki invalid-length).

Or am I mis-understanding the issue here? Sorry, just learning about actual routing operations, so looking at this from a more theoretical rpki angle - where I have a bit more experience :D
