Discussing MANRS at RIPE 72 Next Week

Andrei Robachevsky
By Andrei RobachevskySenior Director, Technology Programmes

Some time ago, a group of MANRS participants agreed that it’d be a good idea to have more precise guidance for the implementation of MANRS Actions. Having such a document could serve at least two purposes:

  • Ease deployment of measures required by MANRS (stub networks or small providers – the majority of ASNs)
  • Help check if the network setup is compliant with MANRS

Job Snijders presented this idea and an outline of the MANRS BCOP document at RIPE71 in November 2015. The idea was supported by several network operators and experts who joined the team to develop such guidance. Since then the team has done some heavy lifting as it appeared even the implementation of basic routing security practices cannot be accomplished by a single line in a config file!

We plan to present this work at the RIPE BCOP TF on May 23 during the RIPE meeting. If you are planning to attend RIPE72, please join the discussion.

This is a work in progress, but you can find the current version of the document here:

We welcome your review and contributions. We expect that shaping up of the document will continue in the RIPE BCOP TF.
