Start with "implement RFC 2827 yourself, and start pushing other SPs to implement it" maybe?


RFC2827 is about source address filtering which is not really the same as BGP route announcement filtering. Unfortunately, I have not come across any RFC's with a thorough discussion of route filtering. It is mentioned briefly in RFC 3013, but section 4.5 only suggests filtering routes for private address space. RFC 4778 also mentions it, but again, there is no in depth discussion. Perhaps it is time for an RFC dedicated to route filtering practices?
