HKIX supporting of RPKI at HKIX Route Servers

Please note that HKIX will support RPKI at HKIX Route Servers in order to enhance the security of HKIX routing.

The Effective Date of supporting RPKI at HKIX Route Servers
IPv6: 07-June-2020 (Sunday)
IPv4: 21-June-2020 (Sunday)

You can check the status of your prefix in the HKIX Looking Glass
If your prefix is tagged with BGP community (4635:65023), that means your prefix is an Invalid prefix after the RPKI validation and HKIX Route Servers rejected your prefix.

Solution of solving the Invalid prefix(es):
Please contact the Origin AS company of the prefix(es) to confirm the Origin AS number of the ROA and/or the max length value of the ROA.

For the details of HKIX RPKI deployment, please visit the route policy page:

End-of-support of AS filtering on HKIX IPv4 route servers

To avoid improper route announcement and for enhancement of routing security, HKIX will cease the support of AS filtering on HKIX IPv4 route servers starting from 1-July-2020.

The existing participants using AS numbers for filtering should consider migrating to Internet Routing Registry OR IP address filtering on HKIX route servers. HKIX will no longer support update of origin AS numbers for AS filtering on 1-July-2020 and afterwards. HKIX participants may use one of the following methods for updating route announcement on HKIX route servers.

Method 1: Internet Routing Registry (IRR) filtering

(highly recommended) HKIX participants must register their AS-SET on Internet Routing Registry. HKIX will look up the IP address filtering for announcement and create the IPv4 access filter on HKIX route servers automatically with the AS-SET provided. It is an automatic process and there is no need to submit the filter update at HKIX filter update agent.

Method 2: IP address filtering

(not recommended) For each new announcement, HKIX participant will need to submit the IP address for update of filtering via the HKIX filter update agent and wait to confirm and approval for the request of filter update on HKIX route servers after filter submission.

If you have any questions or want to schedule for the migration, please feel free to contact HKIX Provision team at provision [@] hkix.net.

Thank you for your attention.

Scheduled Maintenance on HKIX Route Server 1 (RS1) and Route Server 2 (RS2)

Date:

07-Jun-2020 (Sun) - Scheduled Maintenance for IPv6 on RS1 and RS2

 

14-Jun-2020 (Sun) - Scheduled Maintenance for IPv4 on RS1 and RS2

 

21-Jun-2020 (Sun) - Scheduled Maintenance for IPv4 on RS1 and RS2

 

Time Window:

0200 - 0800 HKT (UTC +8)

 

Maintenance:

Planned maintenance of HKIX Route Servers

 

Impact

There will be no impact to HKIX participants which have BGP sessions with both IPv4/IPv6 route servers RS1 (123.255.88.1/2001:7FA:0:1::CA28:A101) and RS2 (123.255.88.2/2001:7FA:0:1::CA28:A102). During the maintenance, your BGP sessions with one RS will be down but your BGP sessions with the another route server will NOT be affected and the multi-lateral peering can still be maintained.

If you have not set up BGP sessions with both RS1 and RS2, you should do it as soon as possible for better resilience.
