Implementation of MANRS Actions
- Action 1: Filtering of Route Announcements Peering policy implements IRR based prefix filtering. Kolkata IX has implemented RPKI validation. Members are expected to implement RPKI as part of security best practices. As per our peering policy we support multilateral peering using our redundant RS and also bilateral peering among peers. We are not allowing peer to advertise default route towards IXP. Any Default route advertisement will drop as per routing policies. The smallest IP address block allowed to be announced is /24.
- Action 2-1: Offer assistance to its members to maintain accurate routing information in an appropriate repository (IRR and/or RPKI) We are assisting our peers through our technical community to implement RPKI and also get their prefixes registered in one of the IRR registries.
- Action 2-2: Offer assistance in implementing MANRS ISP Actions for the members We are conducting periodic training programs involving MANRS ambassadors for ISPs to promote secure routing hygiene in their networks.
- Action 2-4: Provide incentives linked to MANRS readiness
- Action 3: Protect the peering platform Maximum broadcast packages forwarded from the MEMBER’S equipment must not exceed 50 (fifty) in number per second per PHYSICAL INTERFACE.
- Action 4: Facilitate global operational communication and coordination between network operators https://portal.kolkataix.in
Why India Internet Foundation Supports MANRS
Maintaining routing security hygiene is one of the most important aspects for a resilient Critical Internet Infrastructure implementation. Being a community IX, joining the MANRS program and implementing best practices will go a long way in propagating the change within the community. Joining MANRS and also working with our peers advocating the best practices are one of the key agendas towards a more secured Internet experience in the region.CTO, India Internet Foundation
