Developing Good BGP Neighbour Relationships @ APRICOT 2019

Routing Security is featuring heavily on the APRICOT 2019 programme, which is being held on 23-28 February 2019 in Daejeon, South Korea. This helps build on the MANRS initiative being supported by the Internet Society,

On Wednesday, 27 February (09.30-13.00 UTC+9) there will be a Routing Security session that will discuss the latest problems, developments, and how routing security measures can be implemented. Speakers include Job Snijders (NTT) who’ll be discussing changes to BGP in the coming 18 months; Töma Gavrichenkov (Qrator Labs) on how BGP hijacks can be used to compromise the digital certificates used to secure online transactions; and from Anurag Bhatia (Hurricane Electric) who’ll analyse the top misused ASNs.

During the second part of the session, Tashi Puntsho (APNIC) will cover the practical issues and implications of deploying your own RPKI Certificate Authority; Tim Bruijnzeels (NLnet Labs) will discuss the use of route servers at Internet Exchange Points; whilst Ed Lewis (ICANN) will discuss the issues with using the RIR Whois databases.

Following on from this, our colleague Andrei Robachevsky will be raising awareness of the MANRS Initiative during the FIRST Technical Colloquium (16.30-18.00 UTC+9).

FIRST is the global organisation of Computer Security and Incident Teams (CSIRTs) which are often in the front line when network security incidents occur, but are also involved in implementing preventative measures and capacity building. MANRS therefore considers CSIRTs to be important partners in improving the security and resilience of the global routing system, as well as providing input and feedback on the MANRS Observatory that is being developed to provide analysis of the state of the security and resilience of the routing system.

The Asia Pacific Regional Internet Conference on Operational Technologies (APRICOT) is the largest international Internet conference in the region, drawing network engineers, operators, researchers, service providers, users and policy communities from over 50 countries to teach, present, and develop relationships. Other Asia-Pacific networking organisations also use the opportunity to meet, in order to share knowledge required to operate the Internet.

If you’re interested in attending then it’s still possible to register at https://2019.apricot.net/register/register/

Alternatively, if you’re unable to make it in person, then the sessions can be followed via webcast.
