    Your .ORG and .NET tax dollars at work.

    ICANN and the ISOC to the rescue with their NEW well-funded Software Company spin-offs ?

    Your .ORG and .NET tax dollars at work.

    o with sbgp, the assertion of the validity of asn A announcing
          prefix P to asn B is congruent with the bgp signaling itself,
          A merely signs the assertion in the bgp announcement.

      o with sobgp, the assertion is in an external database with
          issues such as
          - data correctness & completeness

    The database is built just like BGP routing information databases are built today. Each AS originates their piece, and every other AS puts the pieces together to form the whole. There is no centralized registry.

          - data consistency
          - update frequency

    These two are up to the originating AS'. If you update your certificates in real time, the same way you do your routes (and I can easily argue you don't actually update your routes in real time, actually), then you will get congruent, up to date information. Those AS' who do not update their certificates in real time will not have real time data in the database, just like BGP is today.

          - granularity (bgp is per-prefix, and this is used by real
              folk to do traffic eng etc). consider the mess of keeping
              this up to date and correct in a super irr.

    There is no "super irr." There is no centralized database in soBGP.

    Yep, Cerf will be back to his old DARPA funding tricks.

    USC/ISI will certainly need to "shore"[1] up that
    $40,000,000 NSF funding that produces nothing.

    [1] Herb Schorr is of course the ex-IBM insider
    at USC/ISI who was the money man behind the Postel regime.

    Note how IBM has their ex-players all over the place. Work for IBM, get to know the "right people"[tm] and then move on to some pork job
    on easy street with the tax payers paying the bill.
