As a result of the Number Resource Organization (NRO) Strategic Review Process, which started in 2022, the NRO agreed to work towards providing a robust, coordinated, and secure Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) service as one of the main priorities.

The RPKI Steering Group, comprising routing security experts from all the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs), collaborated to define the job description for the RPKI Program Manager and a global search was conducted in 2023. The NRO RPKI Program was formally launched with the onboarding of the Program Manager in January 2024.

What do we want to achieve?

Ultimately, the global Internet community will benefit from an overall improvement in the trust and security of routing decisions. In the shorter term, the NRO RPKI Program aims to provide a more consistent and uniformly secure, resilient, and reliable RPKI service to help remove barriers currently experienced by network operators who create RPKI objects through multiple RIRs.

What’s been happening?

I’ve been working with the Steering Group on developing a set of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) to describe the more specific outcomes that we would like to achieve in 2024. We will soon share these OKRs through the RPKI Program web page, and the Steering Group will be working on an implementation plan to achieve those outcomes.
