We are pleased to announce the latest release of Routinator, version 0.13.0 ‘Should Have Started This in a Screen.’

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 workflow.

This release was intended to bring support for ASPA to Routinator. But then the ASPA profile changed and there is a chance this will happen again. This could possibly leave users with an outdated version.

So, while ASPA support for the current draft version of ASPA is implemented in this Routinator release, it isn’t enabled by default. It consequently isn’t enabled in the Docker images and binary packages we provide either.

If you want to try out ASPA, you will have to build your own Routinator version from sources enabling the apsa feature. This is described in detail in the manual but the upshot is that you need to install Rust and then install Routinator via

cargo install --locked --features aspa routinator

In addition, there have been many smaller changes all over the code. The full list of changes is available in the release notes
