"There are also potentially significant drawbacks to incorporating PKI into the routing space, including new potential DoS vectors against PKI-enabled routing elements, the potential for enumeration of routing elements, and the possibility of building a true 'Internet kill switch' with effects far beyond what various governmental bodies have managed to do so far in the DNS space.
Once governments figured out what the DNS was, they started to use it as a ban-hammer - what happens in a PKIed routing system once they figure out what BGP is? "
"So, what happens when the authorities in some locale start pressing for the cancellation of relevant certificates utilized in routing PKI, and/or order operators under their jurisdiction to reject same? "

- NANOG: SIngle trust anchor?
- (after PRISM) "there's a circumstantial case that the NSA and GCHQ are either directly accessing Certificate Authority keys** or else actively stealing keys from US providers, possibly (or probably) without executives' knowledge. This only requires a small number of people with physical or electronic access to servers, so it's quite feasible.*** The one reason I would have ruled it out a few days ago is because it seems so obviously immoral if not illegal, and moreover a huge threat to the checks and balances that the NSA allegedly has to satisfy in order to access specific users' data via programs such as PRISM."

"For now — after years of warnings by Perlman, Bellovin, Kent, Clarke and many others — perhaps the most telling statistic is the percentage of Internet traffic currently secured by the new system of cryptographic network keys: zero."
