prop-132: AS0 for Bogons

Proposal textprop-132-v001

The purpose of creating AS0 (zero) ROAs for unallocated address space by APNIC is to resolve the issue of Bogon announcement. When APNIC issues an AS0 ROA for unallocated address space in its bucket then it will be marked as “Invalid” if someone tries to advertise the same address space.

Currently, in the absence of any ROA, these bogons are marked as “NotFound”. Since many operators have implemented ROV and either planning or already discarding “Invalid” then all the AS0 ROAs which APNIC will create for unallocated address space will be
discarded as well.
