In the context of the International Girls in ICT Day 2020, AFRINIC in partnership with the World Wide Web Foundation is organising an online dialogue to discuss the empowerment of women in the tech world. The theme of the meeting is: Expand Horizons for African Women: Change attitudes in tech leadership.

Apologies for the delay in sending you this monthly communication that I generally send out in the second week of every month.
In the past few weeks, we have witnessed a number of changes in the way we operate given the lockdowns in many parts of the world, including Africa. I am sure we will come out of this crisis stronger and better as we reflect on how to improve and better our communities.

AFRINIC has announced that its RPKI now supports the RPKI Repository Delta Protocol (RFC 8182).

RRDP is an alternative repository access protocol to the existing RSYNC repository. With RRDP, an additional SIA entry that points to an Update Notification file has been included in the RPKI Certificates, manifests and ROA files. While RRDP has been designed to eventually replace RSYNC, it will, for the time being, co-exist with the latter until there is a full phase-out.

RPKI Certificate Authorities use a Repository server to publish their RPKI products, such as certificates, manifest and CRL files and RPKI-signed objects. So far, RPKI Repositories could be accessed using the RSYNC protocol only. However, the protocol has proved to be operationally unfit for a number of reasons.
