A coalition of more than 40 companies focused on protecting online users has endorsed a global community initiative, coordinated by the Internet Society, to improve the security of the Internet’s routing system.
The Internet Society and APNIC signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate in supporting the MANRS initiative in the Asia Pacific Region. Paul Wilson (APNIC) and Rajnesh Singh (ISOC) signed the MoU in Brisbane, Australia on 13 June 2018.
Routing security can be a difficult topic to explain, but it’s vital to a stable and secure future Internet.
This week, the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) announced that: “In response to feedback from operational security communities, CAIDA’s source address validation measurement project is automatically generating monthly reports of ASes originating prefixes in BGP for systems from which we received packets with a spoofed source address.”
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for routing security. First, on 23 April, we introduced a new category of MANRS participants aimed specifically at Internet Exchange Points.
Today, we are pleased to announce that MANRS is getting a new category of members – IXPs. The MANRS IXP Programme introduces a separate membership category for IXPs with a set of security actions to address the unique needs and concerns of IXPs.
This week, Andrei Robachevsky will be talking about routing security in general and MANRS in particular at Euro-IX in Galway, Ireland. The European Internet Exchange Association (Euro-IX) gathers 83 Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) from around the world.
Routing outages or attacks – such as hijacking, leaks, and spoofing – can lead to stolen data, lost revenue, reputational damage and more, all on a global sca
