We are enthused to announce the latest release of the Routinator, version 0.3.1 ‘More Intensity.‘
Routinator is an RPKI relying party software that collects and validates statements made in the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) about allowed route origins and provides them to routers and curious researchers alike.
This release ties up some loose ends before some big improvements planned for the next version. Most importantly, we added a timeout to rsync runs after a hanging rsync got the entire Routinator RTR daemon stuck. Trust anchor locators are now only read once when Routinator starts. While this will make Routinator more robust against accidental file system changes, you will need now need to restart it if you changed the TALs on purpose.
We fixed a bug where a missing tcp-listen option in the config file would make Routinator crash in rtrd mode – it will now use the default listen address 127.0.0.1:3323 as expected.
Finally, we added some more details to the Prometheus metrics introduced in the last version. These are now given per trust anchor and include not only the number of VRPs but also of ROAs.
