We've been doing strict filtering based on IRR data for a long time; when RPKI became a thing, we soon implemented that too. We believe that the objectives of MANRS perfectly align with the goals of ColoClue, so it only makes sense to join!

Holding fast to MANRS activity fortifies this position.
Since its beginnings, RedIRIS has striven to maintain a secure and resilient network, deploying the most updated best practices and, as a National R&E Network, disseminating them to its customers in order to get from them a commitment of deploying these best practices in their networks as well. Adhering to MANRS initiative reinforces this position.

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.
