RADB is a kludge forcing ISPs to make their routing infrastructure to depend on an external and centralized resource, and introducing an extra step (which takes non-negligible amount of time) to their customer installation process. The better way of dealing with the problem of bogus routes is strong authentication of the actual routing updates, whith key being allocated together with the address block. Solves unused address space reclaimation problem, too - when the key expires, it becomes unroutable. I always thought that RADB was a temporary band-aid, but it seems that there was no progress in the field for quite a few years. Unfortunately, trying to do some new stuff in the field is nearly impossible - when VCs hear "backbone routing" they slam the door. --vadim
