OpenBGPD 7.5 💾

OpenBGPD is a free implementation of the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Version 4. It allows ordinary machines to be used as routers exchanging routes with other systems speaking the BGP protocol. The portable version (e.g. for Linux) does not have the means to influence kernel routing tables. It is only suitable for route servers/collectors.

minor feature: Implement RFC 9234 - Route Leak Prevention and Detection Using Roles in UPDATE and OPEN Messages. Full support for RFC 7911 - Advertisement of Multiple Paths in BGP. Include bgplgd(8) - a fastcgi server providing a REST API of bgpctl. Built by default but can be excluded with --disable-bgplgd. Add FIB and TCP MD5 support for FreeBSD. Disable Linux FIB support by default, add an --enable-netlink configure option to enable it for testing and development. Improve bgpd FIB code, make it more portable and properly handle IPv6 scoped addresses.

rpki-client 7.9

The OpenBSD rpki-client is a free, easy-to-use implementation of the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) for Relying Parties (RP) to facilitate validation of the Route Origin of a BGP announcement. The program queries the RPKI repository system, downloads and validates Route Origin Authorisations (ROAs) and finally outputs Validated ROA Payloads (VRPs) in the configuration format of OpenBGPD, BIRD, and also as CSV or JSON objects for consumption by other routing stacks.
