If you are an IXP - this might be of interest to you. Usually, it is considered bad practice to allow your Peering LAN prefixes to be announced/re-distributed by your peers. One way to prevent this to happen is to create an AS0 ROA (see figure 1) with your Peering LAN prefix. AFRINIC highly recommends that African IXPs create this “special” ROA through the MyAFRINIC RPKI interface. Hint: It is important to keep the max-length equal to your prefix length to allow for more specifics.
