The MANRS community is looking for volunteers to serve on its new Steering Committee and will open the call for nominations on 1 October 2021 in anticipation of a November election.
Since 2014, MANRS has grown to include three programs, each contributing to routing security in its own way. Participants implement tailored, relevant actions that ultimately help defend the Internet against route hijacks, route leaks, IP address spoofing, and other attacks.
If you are a policymaker or a business executive, why should you care about routing security? Why does it matter to you? If you are an IT executive with hundreds of tasks to do, why should you prioritize routing security?

The MANRS Observatory relies on data from trusted providers to measure routing security across the Internet and to assess a network’s MANRS-readiness
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
