The Internet is humanity’s greatest collective work! For Azion that is part of this ecosystem, of this collective work and ensuring that Internet traffic is routed reliably worldwide is an essential element for a reliable global Internet. Based on common network operating practices currently in effect, the global Internet routing system does not have sufficient security controls to prevent the injection of false routing information. The lack of these controls creates a significant vulnerability, which can result in thousands of traffic incidents. The MANRS initiative, promoted by the Internet Society, overcomes this collective problem by establishing a security baseline with concrete actions for network operators. The actions are supported by a growing community of more than 200 networks worldwide. Currently, there are more than 7,000 autonomous systems in Brazil, country of Azion’s origin, with only 33 of these autonomous systems participating in MANRS. The idea is to expand the number of companies involved so that, together, they can work to make the Internet a safe environment. This is Azion’s main objective in participating in MANRS.
