FORT Validator

RPKI Validator

FORT validator is an open source RPKI validator. This solution allows operators to validate BGP routing information against the RPKI repository for use in router configuration and resolution.

FORT Monitoring

Monitoring Tool

FORT Monitoring is an open access, digital tool used to document routing incidents in Latin America and the Caribbean and identify regional trends in route hijacks.

FORT REPORT

Diagnostic Report

The FORT report analyzes routing incidents and route hijacks in LAC in 2017, 2018 and part of 2019. The report documents how routing security impacts on the experience of Internet end-users in the region.

About FORT

FORT is a routing security initiative by LACNIC and NIC.MX for a free and open Internet.

The FORT Project seeks to promote RPKI deployment as a means to render routing systems more secure and resilient. RPKI is a protocol that mitigates the vulnerabilities of these systems by facilitating the exchange of secure information in order to prevent route hijacking. In parallel, FORT will open up data on routing incidents to expose how vulnerabilities of the routing system impact end-users’ ability to enjoy a free and open Internet.

The project has three specific goals:

  • To develop a public key infrastructure validator for Internet numbering systems (RPKI)
  • To coordinate an RPKI deployment campaign in Latin America and the Caribbean
  • To develop a monitoring tool to study routing incidents in the region and expose deliberate hijacking events
