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.
At a recent meeting, the new MANRS Advisory Group appointed Andrew Gallo (George Washington University, USA) and Warrick Mitchell (AARNet, Australia) as its first Co-Chairs. The new roles are an important step towards MANRS self-governance.
We will be holding our next Community Meeting on Thursday, December 3, between 13.00 and 14.00 UTC. This will be an online meeting open to all MANRS participants from the Network Operators, Internet Exchange Point (IXP) and Content Delivery Network (CDN) & Cloud Provider programmes.
Both bivalves and network operators play an incredibly important role for their ecosystems: they filter the bad stuff out and leave things a lot cleaner.
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.
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).
Last week at RIPE 73 in Madrid, the MANRS BCOP document was presented and discussed at the BCOP TF session and the Routing-WG.
Some time ago, a group of MANRS participants agreed that it’d be a good idea to have more precise guidance for the implementation of MANRS Actions.
How do you get a community effort off the ground and make it a success? How do we even define success? Is it the number of participants, general awareness beyond its participants, or new parallel activities that the effort stimulates?
