pguibert6WIND and mroethke tools: fix covery issue related to tr_[tcp,ssh]_config initialisation
the structures tr_tcp_config and tr_ssh_config were not set to 0 at
startup, when init_sockets() call is done. handle this by initialising
those structures.

Introduction

The RTRlib implements the client-side of the RPKI-RTR protocol (RFC 6810), (RFC 8210) and BGP Prefix Origin Validation (RFC 6811). This also enables the maintenance of router keys. Router keys are required to deploy BGPSEC.

The software was successfully tested on Linux and FreeBSD.

This package contains also the rtrclient program. It connects to an RTR-Server over TCP or SSH and shows on STDOUT prefix origin data and router keys that have been received from the RTR server. The program can be found in the bin/ directory.

Requirements

To build the RTRlib, the CMake build system must be installed.

To establish an SSH connection between RTR-Client and RTR-Server, the libssh 0.6.x or higher library must also be installed.

cmocka (optional) is required for unit tests Doxygen (optional) is required to create the HTML documentation.

Compilation

  • Generate Makefile:

    Without debugging options

    cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release .
    

    With debug symbols and debug messages:

    cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug .
    

    If the libssh isn't installed within the systems include and library directories you can run cmake with the following parameters:

    -D LIBSSH_LIBRARY=<path-to-libssh.so>
    -D LIBSSH_INCLUDE=<include-directory>
    

    If libssh is installed but you do not want to build rtrlib with ssh support, you can disable it with the following parameter:

    -D RTRLIB_TRANSPORT_SSH=No
    

    Or to enforce ssh support:

    -D RTRLIB_TRANSPORT_SSH=Yes
    

    To specify another directory where the RTRlib will be installed, you can pass the following argument to cmake:

    -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<path>
    
  • Build library, tests, and tools

    make
    

Installation

To copy libraries and headers to system directories, run (optional):

make install

Linking to RTRlib

The name of the shared library is rtr. To link programs to the RTRlib, pass the following parameter to gcc:

-lrtr

In case an error such as

-/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lrtr
-collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

occurs, the location of the library can be passed explicitly as a parameter

-L<path_to_librtr.so>

e.g.,

-L/usr/local/lib64/

API Documentation

The RTRlib includes a HTML documentation of the API. To build them, doxygen must be installed. The documentation will be located in the docs/ directory after the execution of:

make doc

Test RTR-Server Connection

The following command establishes a plain TCP connection to an RTR-Server using the rtrclient command line tool:

bin/rtrclient tcp rpki-validator.realmv6.org 8282

rpki-validator.realmv6.org is an open RTR-Server instance for testing purposes, which runs the RIPE Validator. It listens on port 8282 and validates ROAs from the following trust anchors: AfriNIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC, RIPE.

  • cmake/ - CMake modules
  • doxygen/ - Example code and graphics used in the Doxygen documentation
  • rtrlib/ - Header and source code files of the RTRlib
  • tests/ - Unit tests
