Routinator 3000 is RPKI Relying Party software, also known as an RPKI Validator. It is designed to have a small footprint and great portability.

Routinator 3000 connects to the Trust Anchors of the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) — APNIC, AFRINIC, ARIN, LACNIC and RIPE NCC — downloads all of the certificates and ROAs in the various repositories and validates the signatures. It can feed the validated information to hardware routers supporting Route Origin Validation such as Juniper, Cisco and Nokia, as well as serving software solutions like BIRD, OpenBGPD, GoBGP and VyOS. Alternatively, Routinator can output the validated data in a number of useful formats, such as CSV, JSON and RPSL.

To get started with Routinator, please refer to the README on GitHub, as well as the documentation and manual page on Read the Docs.
