SEE 7: Connectivity, Routing Security & IoT

By Kevin MeynellFormer Senior Manager, Technical and Operational Engagement

The 7th RIPE South-East Europe (SEE 7) meeting is being held on 18-19 June 2018 in Timisoara, Romania, and is focusing on several of the subjects of interest to the Internet Society. It’s also being chaired by our colleague Jan Žorž, whilst I’ll be talking about IoT Security and the OTA IoT Trust Framework.

In Monday, there are talks on BGP monitoring from Paolo Lucente (pmacct), and from Krzysztof Grzegorz Szarkowicz (Juniper Networks) on improvements to routing protocols to suit the centralised data centre-based architectures that are becoming more prevalent on the Internet, and which are the subject of an Internet Draft. Zoran Perovic (SOX) will also talk about paradigm shifts in the implementation of Internet Exchange Points.

On Tuesday, there will be a discussion led by Goran Slavic (SOX) on implementing MANRS in an IXP, which is very relevant to the current MANRS initiative which is increasingly being adopted by IXPs. Our colleague Jan will then be presenting about RIPE-690 which provides recommendations for IPv6 address prefix assignments for end-users. Preceding this, will be an update on IPv6 adoption in the SEE region from Massimiliano Stucchi (RIPE NCC).

Some other highlights are the talk on Quad9DNS by Nishal Goburdhan (PCH) that’s supporting secure DNS queries over TLS between client and resolver, and the road to 400 Gb/s connectivity from Thomas Weible, Flexoptix GmbH. On Monday morning there’s a tutorial on IPv6 Security being led by Massimiliano Stucchi (RIPE NCC), whilst for those with a policy bent, the Tuesday evening session will focus on GDPR.

My own presentation on IoT Security will be on Tuesday afternoon.

More information can be found on the SEE 7 website. The meeting is free to attend, although it is necessary to register. Alternatively you can participate remotely.
