Rotonda Secure Extensions

Implement BGPSec in Rust and integrate into Rotonda

Rotonda is a modular routing project that brings BGP observability and easy BGP provisioning to networks. Its aim is to improve the safety and security of the inter-domain routing system. In this particular effort we will build two features that will help us further the goal of security and safety.

First, we will implement BGPsec as a first-class citizen in Rotonda. BGPsec is a standardised protocol for securing routes in the inter-domain routing system. As far as we know Rotonda will be the first open source routing software that supports BGPsec out-of-the-box.

Second, we will implement a run-time configurable plug-in system for Rotonda, that will not only increase its modularity and extensibility, but also its usability.
