Dragon Research Labs RPKI Toolkit

This is the "" toolkit developed and maintained primarily by Dragon Research Labs. It's had several other names over the years ("DRL RPKI toolkit", "ISC RPKI toolkit", etc), but it's the same toolkit under the same BSD-style license, now moved to GitHub.


There's a pile of documentation salvaged from the old wiki in the doc/ subdirectory: see the README in that directory for details.

Be warned that the existing documentation is for the "old-trunk" branch, which is not what you want to be using these days (among other reasons, because "old-trunk" depends on obsolete third party packages which are no longer supported by their respective authors). We will update the documentation for the current "master" branch as time and other work permits.


All commits to this repository on or after 2016-08-07 should be GPG-signed.
