Network operators have a collective responsibility to ensure a globally robust and secure routing infrastructure. Your network’s safety depends on a routing infrastructure that weeds out bad actors and accidental misconfigurations that wreak havoc on the Internet. The more network operators work together, the fewer incidents there will be, and the less damage they can do.
The MANRS Network Operators Program defines the minimum steps network operators like Internet Service Providers should take to ensure the security and resilience of the Internet’s global routing system.
- Filtering. Ensure the correctness of your own announcements and those from your customers to adjacent networks
- Anti-spoofing. Enable source address validation for at least single-homed stub customer networks, their own end-users, and infrastructure
- Coordination. Maintain globally accessible, up-to-date contact information in common routing databases.
- Global Validation. Publish your data so others can validate
An Implementation Guide documents deployment of MANRS Actions and is targeted at stub networks and small providers. The document also assists in checking if the network setup is compliant with MANRS.
GOLINE firmly believes in initiatives to protect networks, improve security and resilience of the global routing system. Therefore we decided to support the MANRS project and join as participants.Managing Director

Good network routing practice is the fundamental requirement for trust between providers, and ultimately creates a safer and stronger internet for customers. KPN is committed to providing secure and trustworthy communications, and by joining partners in MANRS, we continue to improve security and resiliency for all.Chief Information Security Officer, KPN
1&1 Internet is committed to responsible network routing practices and robust global routing policies as a foundation of a resilient Internet. MANRS is a great initiative to help operators live up to the necessary standards.Head of Network Engineering at 1&1 Internet
Internet routing security is, unfortunately, one of the major vulnerabilities of the cyberspace. All network operators need to take actions to mitigate the routing security issue. MANRS principles will be an important component to improve global routing security. It is our obligation and honor to join MANRS.

iWayAfrica Kenya believes that the MANRS project is critical in today's global Internet ecosystem, and want to play our part in making the Internet routing security landscape better for all.
We stand behind the MANRS initiative, especially taking into account our primary goal of adhering and refining of industry best-practices, as far as security and data protection are concerned. Initiatives of the nature of MANRS are always welcome, in the spirit of improving both our internal quality assurance and security efforts in the medium-term.
We believe that Internet is a community where everyone has to contribute to have a more secure Internet infrastructure. We are committed to making our part for a global routing infrastructure more robust and secure.
Workonline implements the recommendations contained in the MANRS document by default. By publicly stating the measures that we take to ensure the robustness of our network, we hope to encourage our customers and peers to do the same.Director - Network Operations & Strategy, Workonline Communications (Pty) Ltd
ColoClue strongly believes in making the internet better by implementing security features sooner rather than later. We've been doing strict filtering based on IRR data for a long time; when RPKI became a thing, we soon implemented that too. We believe that the objectives of MANRS perfectly align with the goals of ColoClue, so it only makes sense to join!
