Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a community-led initiative, convened by the Internet Society, that aims to improve the security and resilience of the global routing system. It is a way for network operators to work together to create a new norm for more secure and resilient routing.

MANRS defines four concrete actions that network operators should implement:

  • Filtering – Prevent propagation of incorrect routing information
  • Anti-spoofing – Prevent traffic with spoofed source IP addresses
  • Coordination – Facilitate global operational communication and coordination between network operators
  • Global Validation – Facilitate validation of routing information on a global scale

MANRS is documented on its own website at https://www.manrs.org.
