While MANRS has gone from strength to strength since its beginning in 2014, gaining attention, interest, and credibility from network operators worldwide, for the initiative to be sustainable and impactful in the long run there should be a stronger sense of ownership by the community.
By Dr. Bahaa Al-Musawi, MANRS Fellow (2020 cohort) Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI), as defined in RFC 6810, was proposed to authenticate the relationship between a prefix and its origination. While it has many advantages, such as reducing route leaks, the system introduces some security issues.
Today, we are proud to announce the 2021 MANRS Fellows. Fellows are emerging leaders who believe that routing security is essential and are ready to contribute to its improvement in training, research, or policy.
The MANRS (Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security) Fellowship Program 2021 is now accepting applications. If you are an emerging leader eager to improve the well-being of the Internet’s global routing system, apply now
Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and cloud providers exchange trafﬁc with thousands of other networks so data can ﬂow efﬁciently around the world, and their participation in MANRS ampliﬁes the positive effect they have on routing security and the routing hygiene of networks they pee
By Dr. Bahaa Al-Musawi, MANRS Fellow (2020 cohort) Despite its critical role in Internet connectivity, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is still highly vulnerable to different types of attacks.
One of the biggest events of the year is APRICOT, the annual Asia Pacific Regional Internet Conference on Operational Technologies. This year, it offers online technical training from February 22 to 26, and the conference itself from March 1 to 4.
Over the past year, COVID-19 underlined the importance of a secure and resilient Internet to ensure we stay connected online.
By Alfred Arouna, MANRS Fellow (2020 cohort) Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) is the way to cryptographically sign records that associate a Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) route announcement with the correct originating AS number.
