We are approaching the second anniversary of launching this MANRS initiative, and we have now grown to over 40 network operators. We have just published a press release about MANRS and are working to increase MANRS’ visibility in wider circles. Working together, these participating network operators are taking action to improve the resilience and security of the routing infrastructure to keep the Internet safe for businesses and consumers alike.
From the release: “Implementing MANRS helps improve Internet security and resilience and helps enable a sustainable business environment. MANRS provides added value for the network operator and its customers: better protection against traffic anomalies caused by misconfigurations; cleaner setups resulting in easier troubleshooting and lower time-to-resolution (TTR); improved peering conditions; and opportunities for valuable collaboration with other operators through a discussion forum and professional network. Although committing to MANRS has its costs, the scope of the actions is specifically defined to minimize costs and the risks of implementing them.
We are excited to embark upon this public relations outreach to inform more network operators about the initiative, grow its membership, and work toward improving routing security for everyone on the Internet.
