In January last year I looked back at 2017 trying to figure out how routing security looked like globally and on a country level. I used BGPStream.com – a great public service providing information about suspicious events in the routing system.
November was quite a busy month as MANRS gets more attention and interest from the network operators community. Since 30 October, 10 new members have joined.
Last week, at APRICOT 2018 in Kathmandu, Nepal, there were a lot of talks and discussions focused on routing security and the Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS).
How was the state of the Internet’s routing system in 2017? Let’s take a look back using data from BGPStre
Yesterday, there were two BGP routing incidents in which several high-profile sites (Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitch, NTT Communications and Riot Games) were rerouted to a previously unused Russian AS.
Last week, I presented MANRS to the IX.BR community. My presentation was part of a bigger theme – the launch of an ambitious program in Brazil to make the Internet safer
MANRS was founded with the ambitious goal of improving the security and reliability of the global Internet routing system, based on collaboration among participants and shared responsibility for Internet infrastructure.
Verisign, a renowned security solutions provider and a DNS registry and root server operator, demonstrated its commitment to ensuring that the global routing system becomes more secure by joining Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) today.
Are you a network expert? Please participate in a MANRS configuration survey and share your knowledge!
MANRS defines 4 Actions, which are really the building blocks for simple use cases. We believe that even if these measures are implemented widely, security and resilience of the Internet routing system will significantly improve.
