IETF 91 Rough Guide On Routing Resilience And Security – De-aggregation, Route Leaks and more

Dan York
By Dan YorkDirector, Online Content

IETF LogoWhat will be happening next week at IETF 91 with regard to improving the security and resilience of the Internet’s routing infrastructure?

Our colleague Andrei Robachevsky tackles this question in his post this week: “Rough Guide to IETF 91: Routing Resilience & Security“.

Andrei explains that one of the major issues in routing right now is the growth in the size of the global routing tables and the growth of “de-aggregation”… and the challenges that lie therein.  He also writes about “route leaks” and what is being done to address this issue and he writes about the ongoing work related to RPKI in the SIDR working group.

He finishes up talking about the MANRS initiative announced yesterday  and how that can help with overall routing security and resiliency.

Please do read Andrei’s Rough Guide post … and then do check out our topic areas on Securing BGP and Anti-spoofing to learn more about how you can secure your routing infrastructure.  We will look forward to seeing some of you next week at IETF 91!
