NCSC publishes security advisory around vulnerabilities in RPKI validation software (update)
The NCSC coordinates a multi-party CVD process around vulnerabilities in RPKI validation software. This process requires broad, multiple coordination with many international parties. The NCSC was approached earlier this year by researchers who found the vulnerabilities with the request to assist them in this multi-party process. Following the request, the NCSC has informed various parties of the existence of these vulnerabilities. The NCSC worked together with the involved parties to find a suitable date on which the updates could be made available.
On Tuesday 9 November, the NCSC issued a security advisory (NCSC-2021-0987) about these vulnerabilities. The advisory also includes the solutions of the various developers of validation software. The suggested solutions from the developers can be found at the bottom of this post.
The NCSC will contribute the experiences of this process to the ongoing discussion about multi-party disclosure in order to continue to improve and contribute to national and international digital security.
