Securing BGP – Video/Slides from ION Belfast

ION Belfast LogoLast week and this week we’ve been highlighting sessions from ION Belfast on 9 September 2014.

At ION Belfast, David Freedman from Claranet presented on “Securing BGP” and discussed both IETF protocols surrounding BGP and the new Routing Resilience Manifesto and MANRS document. From the session abstract:

Why do so many network operators fail to put basic technologies into practice when it comes to securing BGP? In this session, we’ll examine route filtering and BGP session security – the practical basics of securing BGP.

You can now watch the full BGP session on YouTube:

David’s slides are also available on SlideShare:

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us in Belfast in person or via the webcast. It was a great event thanks to our co-location partner, UKNOF 29, and our sponsor, Afilias.

Routing Around Catastrophe – Video/Slides from ION Belfast

ION Belfast LogoLast week and this week we’ve been highlighting sessions from ION Belfast on 9 September 2014.

At ION Belfast, Rob Evans from JANET moderated an interesting panel entitled “Routing Around Catastrophe.” The three panelists were Nick Hilliard from INEX, freelance consultant Mike Hughes, and Dave Wilson from HEAnet. From the session abstract:

How do we improve the resilience and security of the Internet’s underlying routing infrastructure? While Internet routing has worked well over the years, there have been instances where errors and misconfiguration have caused stability issues. Malicious attackers have also created denial of service attacks and other issues by spoofing IP addresses and manipulating routing tables. What are the best practices we can use to help mitigate these kinds of attacks? What new routing technologies or standards are being developed to address these threats? How can we as an Internet community make the Internet more resilient and secure?

IPv6 Success Stories – Network Operators Tell All! – Video/Slides from ION Belfast

ION Belfast LogoThis week and next we’ll be highlighting sessions from ION Belfast on 9 September 2014.

At ION Belfast, three network operators from leading ISPs across Europe presented in a panel session entitled, “IPv6 Success Stores – Network Operators Tell All!” The speakers were Ian Farrer from Deutsche Telekom AG in Germany, Timo Hilbrink from xs4all in the Netherlands, and Dave Wilson from HEAnet in Ireland. From the session abstract:

In this session, we invite network operators to share their IPv6 success stories and lessons learned along the way that can help other managers of networks deploy IPv6. How did they do it? What technical, organizational, and political challenges did they face? Attendees will gain vital insight as network operators lay out the stages for IPv6 implementation—creating the business case for management buy-in, initiating a planning process, flipping the switch, and, finally, gathering measurements and proving success.

You can now watch the full IPv6 session on YouTube:

Ian’s slides and Timo’s slides are also available on SlideShare. (Dave didn’t use any slides.)

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us in Belfast in person or via the webcast. It was a great event thanks to our co-location partner, UKNOF 29, and our sponsor, Afilias.

Why Implement DNSSEC? Video/Slides from ION Belfast

ION Belfast LogoThis week and next we’ll be highlighting sessions from ION Belfast on 9 September 2014.

At ION Belfast, Jim Galvin from our ION Conference Series Sponsor Afilias presented a session entitled, “Why Implement DNSSEC.” From the session abstract:

DNSSEC helps prevent attackers from subverting and modifying DNS messages and sending users to wrong (and potentially malicious) sites. So what needs to be done for DNSSEC to be deployed on a large scale? We’ll discuss the business reasons for, and financial implications of, deploying DNSSEC, from staying ahead of the technological curve, to staying ahead of your competition, to keeping your customers satisfied and secure on the Internet. We’ll also examine some of the challenges operators have faced and the opportunities to address those challenges and move deployment forward.

You can now watch the full DNSSEC session on YouTube:

2 Years After World IPv6 Launch: Are We There Yet? – Video/Slides from ION Belfast

ION Belfast LogoThis week and next we’ll be highlighting sessions from ION Belfast on 9 September 2014.

At ION Belfast, Nathalie Kunneke-Trenaman from RIPE NCC presented a session entitled, “Two Years After World IPv6 Launch: Are We There Yet?” From the session abstract:

June 2014 marked the 2nd anniversary of World IPv6 Launch, when thousands of Internet Service Providers, home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world came together to permanently enable IPv6 on their products and services. Where are we now on the path to full global IPv6 adoption? We’ll discuss the current state of IPv6 adoption, including statistics and lessons learned from and since World IPv6 Launch, and the next steps needed to move forward with IPv6 deployment.

ION Belfast Video Archives on IPv6, DNSSEC, IETF, and Routing Security

ION Belfast LogoCan you believe it’s been two months since ION Belfast?! It was a fantastic event, co-located with the United Kingdom Network Operators’ Forum (UKNOF), on 9 September 2014. If you were there, you know we had an expert-packed agenda discussing IPv6, DNSSEC, the IETF, routing, and securing BGP. If you missed it, or if you’re eager to relive the excitement, we’re happy to announce that the video archives are now available. You can find all the presentations linked from the agenda main page, and all the videos are available on the Video Archives page. The sessions available are:

  • Opening Remarks
  • Two Years After World IPv6 Launch: Are We There Yet?
  • Why Implement DNSSEC?
  • IPv6 Success Stories– Network Operators Tell All!
  • IETF Update
  • Panel: Routing Around Catastrophe
  • Securing BGP

We’ve had our last two IONs since Belfast. ION Santiago was in October, and ION Tokyo was just this week on Monday. We’ll have the video archives for Santiago soon, and a follow-up post on Tokyo in the next few days. We’re also hard at work planning our 2015 events, so stay tuned for official announcements on this blog!

Our ION Conferences bring experts from across the globe together to share their deployment experiences, and provide insight into the future of the Internet networking landscape. Our goal is to make the IETF standards implementation process user-friendly and our ION Conferences provide the platform for thought leaders to impart their deployment know-how with those that need to know how-to!
