Routing security is vital to the future and stability of the Internet.

To highlight the importance of Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) and encourage network operators to take concrete steps to improve routing security, we hosted RPKI Week on 12-16 July 2021.

RPKI helps prevent Internet routing incidents like prefix hijacking and route leaks. It allows an entity to cryptographically verify that an autonomous system (AS) is authorized to originate a prefix, thus reducing incidents that can lead to DDoS attacks, traffic inspection, lost revenue, reputational damage, and more.

We brought together partners from across the Internet routing ecosystem to launch new tools, provide new educational materials, and facilitate discussion and build awareness about routing security. Here are some highlights:

  • New educational videos on ROA creation, ROV deployment, and validator installation
  • New tools, including a ROA monitor on MANRS Observatory
  • Several webinar panels featuring experts in the field
  • 12 July 2021, 13:00 UTC: Welcome to the RPKI Week
  • 13 July 2021, 13:00 UTC: MANRS Recommendation for Operators of RPKI Services
  • 14 July 2021, 13:00 UTC: MANRS Community Panel Discussion for IXPs
  • 15 July 2021, 13:00 UTC: MANRS Community Panel Discussion: ISPs/NSPs
  • 16 July 2021, 13:00 UTC: Trust in RPKI — An X.509 Primer
