CDN and Cloud Providers Programme
Originally designed for network operators, the MANRS initiative has expanded over the years to also address the unique needs and concerns of Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) and now Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and cloud providers.
Routing security is vital to the future and stability of the Internet
The Internet’s routing foundation has cracks, and they’re growing. Not a single day goes by without dozens of incidents affecting the routing system.

Why join MANRS?
MANRS requires collaboration among participants and shared responsibility for the global Internet routing system. Joining MANRS means joining a community of security-minded organizations committed to making the global routing infrastructure more robust and secure.
The MANRS Observatory is a new online tool to monitor the state of Internet routing security. It aggregates data from trusted sources into a user-friendly dashboard to help network operators improve the security of their networks.
