Implementation of MANRS Actions
Action 1: Filtering of Route AnnouncementsOur policy is documented here:
Action 2-1: Offer assistance to its members to maintain accurate routing information in an appropriate repository (IRR and/or RPKI).We give our members where they can update their objects and how to update those correctly.
Additionally, we point out some good examples, how to retrieve policy from other and on the other hand, how to define their own policy as well, finally, how IRR and RPKI can fulfil each other to gain the security to the Internet.
Action 2-2: Offer assistance in implementing MANRS ISP Actions for the members.We help promote MANRS through member meetings which will be held 2 times a year. Besides, We invite the distinguished speaker, Aftab Siddiqui to introduce and promote MANRS in BKNIX Peering forum.
Action 3: Protect the peering platformSingle MAC Address per port
This will help gain the security and limit the risk of loop in the network

0x0806 - ARP
0x86dd - IPv6
Unicast traffic only - Multicast or Broadcast is not allowed unless it is
Broadcast ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) or
Multicast IPv6 ND (Neighbour discovery)
No proxy ARP [RFC1027]
No ICMP Redirects
No directed broadcast
limit the MAC Address learned by switch
drop any other frame which does not match the configured source MAC address
Action 4: Facilitate global operational communication and coordination between network operatorsFacilitate the mailing list [email@example.com] to the network operators who connected to BKNIX and help deliver message to others not in BKNIX including local Network Operator Group (ThaiNOG).
Action 5: Provide monitoring and debugging tools to the membersIXP-Manger for Members portal and also Request-Tracker (RT)
Generic Opensource network monitoring : Nagios, MRTG, Cacti, Smokeping LibreNMS, Rancid
Finally, In-house software to integrate all the information that does not specific in the previous tools we use.
