Join us from 17 to 20 July for a series of virtual tutorials and panel discussions as we highlight the importance of routing security and encourage decision-makers and network operators to take real steps toward improving the security and resilience of the global routing infrastructure.
We are bringing together partners from across the Internet routing ecosystem to answer your questions about routing security and the MANRS initiative, discuss successes with implementing routing security measures such as Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI), and share ideas on how to build awareness about routing security among not just the technical community but the wider Internet community.
The event will take place via Zoom and be live-streamed and recorded for later viewing.
Registration is now open for tutorials and sessions. More sessions will be added shortly.
This tutorial will introduce what the global Internet routing system is, why it’s important to secure it, and how to protect it by adopting best current practices and joining like-minded networks as MANRS participants.
In this tutorial, we will provide a refresher on what RPKI and ROV are and why it’s important every network implements them to secure the global Internet routing system. We will then explain how to set up ROV in a small network, during which participants will perform a small exercise.
In this tutorial, we’ll discuss the MANRS history and program objectives, including the four simple but concrete actions that MANRS participants work towards implementing that eliminate common routing issues and attacks, and provide a bridge to universal adoption and decrease the likelihood of future incidents.
Note: This tutorial is the introductory session for the Internet Society MANRS Course, which is happening from 17 July to 11 August. Learn more about the course and enroll in the current intake.
Making the MANRS Observatory Work for You
Wednesday, 19 July 7:00-8:00 UTC
In this tutorial, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at what features are available to MANRS participants, including the routing security details for all ASes and the MANRS API, and what you can interpret from them for your own reporting and validation.
Routing Security as Supply Chain Security: Threats and Opportunities
Tuesday, 18 July 13:00-14:30 UTC
In this panel session, we will bring together the perspectives of enterprises, the public sector, connectivity, and CDN/Cloud providers regarding routing security. The panelists will discuss effective strategies for managing risks in the organization’s connectivity supply chain.
It Takes a Community: Exchanging Routing Security Best Practices
Wednesday, 19 July 11:30-12:30 UTC
In this session, representatives from three IXPs will share how they proactively promote and implement routing security best practices as part of their strategy and the lessons they’ve learned to help other IXPs, networks, and businesses better engage with their community.
The Role of CSIRTS in Routing Security
Wednesday, 19 July 13:00-14:30 UTC
In this session, you will hear from those working in the Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) community who proactively promote and implement routing security best practices as part of their strategy. They will discuss how they are doing so and the lessons they’ve learned and will open the floor to discuss how to better engage with this community.
The Routing Security Research Roundup
Thursday, 20 July 11:30-12:30 UTC
In this session, three current and former MANRS Research Ambassadors and Fellows will share updates on their past projects and how it has inspired new trains of thought.
ROV Research Review
Thursday, 20 July 13:00-14:30 UTC
In this session, we will review recent papers coming out of the research community focused on ROV and how these are helping to strengthen the security and resilience of the global routing system.
Working with Governments to Progress Routing Security
Thursday, 20 July 13:00-14:30 UTC
In this combined fireside and panel session we will explore how various stakeholders associated with governments, agencies, or public-private partnerships perceive how they can push the needle to more secure routing on the Internet. We will discuss what is happening, what works and doesn’t, and what’s next.
