RFC 7115, "Origin Validation Operation Based on the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI)", January 2014

Source of RFC: sidr (rtg)

Errata ID: 4973

Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Tassos Chatzithomaoglou
Date Reported: 2017-03-18
Held for Document Update by: Alvaro Retana
Date Held: 2017-03-25

Section 3 & 5 says:

section 3
---------
For example, if, instead of 10.0.0.0/16-24, one issues
   10.0.0.0/16 and 10.0.42.0/24, a forged origin attack cannot succeed
   against 10.0.666.0/24. 

section 5
---------
Consider having a ROA for AS 42 for prefix
   10.0.0.0/16-24.  A BGP announcement for 10.0.666.0/24 from AS 666
   would be Invalid

It should say:

   10.0.0.0/16 and 10.0.42.0/24, a forged origin attack cannot succeed

   would be Invalid

Notes:

666 is not a valid octet for an ipv4 address

===
I am marking this report as "Held for Document Update" [1], which means that the author might consider its merits for a future update. If the use of the "666" octet was intentional, then a short note explaining might be appropriate to avoid further confusion.
