Just over one year ago, on the 6th of November 2014, a group of 9 network operators launched an effort called MANRS – Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security.
“Prevent traffic with spoofed source IP addresses” is one of the four Expected Actions outlined in the MANRS document, and one that could lead to significant reduction in DDoS attacks and an overall more secure routing syst
A new MANRS participant, SBTAP, writes on its website: “The autonomous system SBTAP of the City of San Benedetto del Tronto is the first public administration in Italy to join the Routing Resilience Manifesto”.
Last week, a pan-African Internet service provider of fibre-based connectivity, Workonline Communications, joined the group of MANRS supporters by declaring that they implement all four of the Actions.
Cogent Communications, Inc., a multinational Tier 1 Internet Service Provider, joined the Routing Resilience Manifesto movement, by supporting the MANRS document and implementing all four Actions defined there. As Hank Kilmer put it: “Cogent supports the efforts championed by the MANRS document.
I’ve been invited to give a short talk on MANRS at NANOG On The Road in Herndon, Virginia tomorrow (23 June).
The number of networks that support MANRS and have signed up is growing. We have now reached 22.
Today, we are proud to debut a new badge that all Routing Resilience Manifesto / MANRS participants can use to help spread the word that they are helping make the Internet a safer place.
Last February at APRICOT 2014 our Internet Society team organized a NetOps workshop where I presented the idea for this Routing Resilience Manifesto initiative.
