Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative that helps reduce the most common routing threats.
Configuration Issue Penalizing Single-Digit ASNs
Today, we explore an ongoing issue where it looks like an ASN is hijacking address space, but it is actually a router misconfiguration issue that unfairly penalizes certain ASNs. First, a few vocabulary reminders: An autonomous system (AS) is a group of IP prefixes with a clearly defined external routing policy. To interact with […]

Why Join MANRS?
Every day, routing security incidents affect the Internet and the organizations and people that rely on it. MANRS sets security norms to reduce those incidents.
Participants across four programs
Improve security by preventing attacks and accidents
Join a community committed to a more robust and secure Internet
Lead the industry by inspiring and encouraging other operators
The MANRS Observatory monitors the state of Internet routing security. It aggregates data to help network operators improve the security of their networks. See how your network is doing.

Adherence to MANRS is an important commitment that operators make back to the Internet community. Together we aim to remove the havens from which miscreants maintain the freedom and anonymity to attack our network and our customers.Claranet Group
MANRS is an excellent initiative that has allowed us to direct a greater focus on the security aspects related to our BGP infrastructure
The University of Maine System is a strong supporter of the MANRS initiative and will follow its guidance to assist in the stabilization of the routing infrastructure of the Internet.
Connecticut Education Network originated as a research & education network and now functions as a Tier 2 ISP for multiple industry verticals. Responsible safeguards on the signaling plane ensure we're not contributing to the spoofing/hijacking problem, and membership in MANRS reflect our commitment to making the Internet a better place for our members and their constituents.
I believe it is in the worlds best interest to make an effort to ensure stability and security at all levels for providers. It is our job to ensure our services, our products, are helping, and not hindering, by connecting to the world. We do our best as a provider to follow this mentality and pass it on to our customers and our peers. We believe that joining MANRS will help spotlight these ideals.

The Internet is humanity's greatest collective work! For Azion that is part of this ecosystem, of this collective work and ensuring that Internet traffic is routed reliably worldwide is an essential element for a reliable global Internet. Based on common network operating practices currently in effect, the global Internet routing system does not have sufficient security controls to prevent the injection of false routing information. The lack of these controls creates a significant vulnerability, which can result in thousands of traffic incidents. The MANRS initiative, promoted by the Internet Society, overcomes this collective problem by establishing a security baseline with concrete actions for network operators. The actions are supported by a growing community of more than 200 networks worldwide. Currently, there are more than 7,000 autonomous systems in Brazil, country of Azion's origin, with only 33 of these autonomous systems participating in MANRS. The idea is to expand the number of companies involved so that, together, they can work to make the Internet a safe environment. This is Azion's main objective in participating in MANRS.Network Planning Director, AZION
As the provider of a network that connects NZ's researchers, educators, and students to the rest of the world, REANNZ has always taken the security and stability of our members’ networks seriously. MANRS’ pragmatic and straightforward framework for implementing best practice routing security reflects and expands upon our own efforts in this area. We support this initiative and encourage wider adoption of it throughout the Internet community for the benefit of all.
