Is s-bgp actually deployed/present on routers, or is it just an accademic protocol?

Where is bgp security moving to (if it is moving in any particular way)?

I've never seen it used in professional networks (which does not mean it isn't used anywhere). BGP security is a bit of a broad subject, but the one feature which has been gaining some traction recently is route validation using RPKI.


I did a search on both Cisco and Juniper's sites for S-BGP configurations. I didn't find any, which leads me to conclude that it is not a protocol in wide use.
