Dear mailing list,

we are happy to announce the latest release of Routinator, version
0.7.1 ’Moonlight and Love Songs.’

Routinator is an RPKI relying party software that collects and
validates statements in the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI)
about allowed route origins and makes them available to the BGP

While this release is primarily a maintenance release, updating the
versions of the libraries used, it brings one interesting change: The
TALs included now contain HTTPS URIs for the trust anchor certificates
of four of the five RIRs.

Originally, the trust anchor certificates – like everything else in
RPKI – were downloaded using rsync. With RRDP now allowing to download
RPKI data using HTTPS and option was added in RFC 8630 allow
downloading the trust anchor certificates directly via HTTPS.
Routinator is supported this since version 0.6 and now all four RIRs
that support RRDP have also published their trust anchor certificate
via HTTPS.

Consequently, we have updated the TALs that come with Routinator to
include the HTTPS URIs for these locations. Starting with the release,
Routinator will also prefer HTTPS URIs over rsync URIs unless the use
of RRDP has been disabled.

Since Routinator uses the TALs stored on disk, you will need to
re-install the set of TALs using the command

$ routinator init -f

in order for the new URIs to become effective.

You can find the complete list of changes in the release notes at


Happy Routinating!
