Now, more than ever, we need a more resilient Internet. Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, that provides crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats.
In March 2020, the new MANRS Content Delivery Network (CDN) and Cloud Programme was launched. It opens a new chapter in MANRS, further extending its community and bringing us closer to a secure and resilient global routing system – the foundation of the Internet.
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. Route hijacking, route leaks, IP address spoofing, and other harmful activities can lead to DDoS attacks, traffic inspection, lost revenue, reputational damage, and more. These incidents are global in scale, with one operator’s routing problems cascading to impact others.
How MANRS helps
MANRS outlines concrete actions that networks should take. Find out more about the MANRS actions for:
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.
Please consider implementing the MANRS actions and joining the MANRS community.
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.
