It’s been a busy couple of weeks for routing security. First, on 23 April, we introduced a new category of MANRS participants aimed specifically at Internet Exchange Points.
Yesterday, we reported some initial news and details about the Amazon Route 53 BGP hijack that resulted in a loss to some cryptocurrency users.
Another BGP hijacking event is in the news today. This time, the event is affecting the Ethereum cryptocurrency. (Read more about it here, or here.) Users were faced with an insecure SSL certificate.
Today, we are pleased to announce that MANRS is getting a new category of members – IXPs. The MANRS IXP Programme introduces a separate membership category for IXPs with a set of security actions to address the unique needs and concerns of IXPs.
This week, Andrei Robachevsky will be talking about routing security in general and MANRS in particular at Euro-IX in Galway, Ireland. The European Internet Exchange Association (Euro-IX) gathers 83 Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) from around the world.
We have a lot of exciting things happening in the MANRS world lately, and I’d like to take a moment to share a few of them with you and also ask for your feedback. New Logo We have a new MANRS logo!
