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.
This short video helps explain:
How can MANRS help?
MANRS outlines four simple but concrete actions that network operators should take:
- Filtering – Ensure the correctness of your own announcements and of announcements from your customers to adjacent networks with prefix and AS-path granularity
- Anti-spoofing – Enable source address validation for at least single-homed stub customer networks, your own end-users, and infrastructure
- Coordination – Maintain globally accessible up-to-date contact information
- Global Validation – Publish your data, so others can validate routing information on a global scale
A separate set of Actions applies explicitly to Internet Exchange Points.
