validation (Origin Validation for BGP)


Hierarchy Level


Configure resource public key infrastructure (RPKI) BGP route validation.


notification-rib [ notification-rib ... ];

Specify the routing tables that are notified when the validation state changes.

When validation policies are used for BGP peers in routing instances, the policy engine tries to lookup within the local Validated Route Payload (VRP) database of that particular routing instance. If the RPKI session is not in that routing instance, then it falls back to the VRP database of the default routing instance. Modification of VRP records in the fall back VRP database will not be picked up by the non-default routing instance. As a result, routing table entries of the default and non-default routing instances will differ.

To offset this, configure the notification-rib option in the default routing instance to ensure that the modifications to the default routing instance trigger a re-evaluation of the routing tables for the specified routing instance.

Junos OS Release 22.3R1 introduced support for named validation databases in addition to the default VRP database.

To specify a named validation database, use the validation-state (invalid | valid) option at the [edit routing-options validation database database-name static record destination maximum-length prefix-length origin-autonomous-system as-number] hierarchy level.

To specify a target route-validation database for a validation session, use the database database-name option at the [edit routing-options validation group group-name session] hierarchy level.

As a result, we no longer need to configure notification-ribs explicitly. They are created internally to track which VRP databases are being consulted by which routing-instances.
