IPv6 and DNSSEC Videos from ION Islamabad Now Online

In January, we hosted ION Islamabad alongside the South Asia Network Operators Group (SANOG) conference, SANOG 29. Our half-day program covered topics including IPv6, DNSSEC, Securing BGP, and TLS for Applications. Now, all the presentations and video archives are available online.

Kevin Meynell did a great job recapping the ION in his blog post, “ION Islamabad: Pushing IPv6 and DNSSEC deployment in Pakistan.” Now is your chance to watch the video archives and relive it for yourself.

Thank you to everyone who joined us in person or via the webcast. If you attended, I hope you found the event enjoyable and informative. If you missed it, you can still catch up! We’d love to hear your feedback on these sessions or the ION Conferences as a whole.

We would like to once again thank Afilias for supporting ION Islamabad as an ION Conference series sponsor. Stay tuned for announcements about the rest of our 2017 ION Conference lineup, continuing next with ION Costa Rica in July, and of course we’ll be in touch on our social media channels until then.

(And, as always, if you’re eager to get started deploying these technologies, visit our “Start Here” page to find resources targeted at your type of organization or role.)
