Video/Slides: Routing Around Catastrophe (ION Krakow)

ion_krakow2013_blue_jpgThis week, before ION Toronto on 11 November, we’ll be highlighting sessions from our last ION Conference in Krakow, Poland.

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 kind 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?

These were the questions raised at ION Krakow on 30 September during the “Routing Around Catastrophe” panel.

Moderated by Ivan Pepelnjak, panelists included:

  • Łukasz Bromirski (Cisco)
  • David Freedman (Claranet)
  • Adam Grodecki (Huawei)

You can now watch the video and hear their views as well as the points raised by audience members:

Video: Global IPv6 Tournament: Who will take the IPv6 Crown? (ION Krakow)

ion_krakow2013_blue_jpgThis week, before ION Toronto on 11 November, we’ll be highlighting sessions from our last ION Conference in Krakow, Poland.

IPv6 has been available from the Regional Internet Registries for almost 15 years. How do different types of organizations in different countries formulate their plans to deploy IPv6, and what’s taking so long? In the “Global IPv6 Tournament: Who will take the IPv6 Crown?” session at ION Krakow on 30 September, panelists from Poland, Germany, and the United States discussed their experiences deploying IPv6, the technical, organizational, and political challenges they faced, and the current status of their deployments.

Moderated by Jan Žorž, panelists included:

  • Ian Farrer (Deutsche Telecom, Germany)
  • Bartosz Gajda (PIONIER, Poland)
  • Chris Grundemann (Internet Society, USA)
  • Krzysztof Siliki (NASK, Poland)

You can now watch the video and hear their views as well as the points raised by audience members:

Video/Slides: Protocols of the Round Table: BCOP Update (ION Krakow)

ion_krakow2013_blue_jpgThis week, before ION Toronto on 11 November, we’ll be highlighting sessions from our last ION Conference in Krakow, Poland.

The IETF standardizes the protocols and services that vendors implement and network operators are supposed to deploy and use. We believe there is an opportunity to better identify, capture, and promote best current operational practices documents emerging from various regional network operators’ groups. We believe sharing these documents across the globe would benefit the wider Internet community and help more operators deploy new technologies like IPv6 and DNSSEC faster and easier.

In this session from ION Krakow on 30 September, Jan gave an update to discuss the status of Best Current Operational Practices (BCOP) efforts across the world, and gave an overview of some of the documents in the process so far.

You can now watch the video and hear their views as well as the points raised by audience members:

Video/Slides: Slaying the Two-Headed Beast: Challenges and Triumphs of DNSSEC (ION Krakow)

ion_krakow2013_blue_jpgThis week, before ION Toronto on 11 November, we’ll be highlighting sessions from our last ION Conference in Krakow, Poland.

What needs to be done for DNSSEC to be deployed on a large scale? At our ION Krakow event on 30 September, panelists discussed this during our “Slaying the Two-Headed Beast: Challenges and Triumphs of DNSSEC” session.

Panelists shared their experiences in implementing DNSSEC, including challenges they’ve faced along the way and the opportunities to address those challenges and move deployment forward.

Moderated by Dan York, the panelists included:

  • Frederic Cambus (StatDNS)
  • Krzysztof Olesik (NASK)
  • Patrik Wallström (OpenDNSSEC)

Live Streaming ION Krakow Over IPv6 – Using Google+ Hangouts or YouTube Live

ion_krakow2013_blue_jpgWe’re doing something a little different (and risky) with our live streaming of ION Krakow today out of Krakow, Poland.  Instead of using our “regular” method of live streaming using the Internet Society’s Livestream.com account, we’re trying out a Google+ Hangout On Air (HOA) which will simultaneously broadcast the session live on our Deploy360 YouTube channel.  You should be able to watch the live webcast on either:

Why are we doing this?  Primarily because we accepted the challenge by Wes George on Twitter to “eat our own dogfood” and see if we could get livestreaming going out over IPv6.

Live streaming over IPv6

Livestream.com is currently IPv4-only and so we went looking at other options.  Without setting up our own server infrastructure, the two possible options that we’ve found seem to be:

I say “possible” because this will be our first test and we’re not honestly entirely sure whether the broadcast will go out over IPv6.  It turns out that PLNOG only has an IPv4 network and so our connection back to Google’s servers will be IPv4.  In theory, Google’s content distribution network (CDN) should then serve the video streams out over IPv4 or IPv6.  We’ll see (and we’d like your help – see below).

As far as the two services, YouTube Live was of most interest to me when testing because it allows us to schedule an event in advance and promote that URL – and then have the video go live at that URL at the appointed time.  However, I was unable to get my software to work consistently with YouTube Live (and didn’t have a whole lot of time to test).

I’m going instead with a Google+ Hangout On Air because the video chain worked well and it also broadcasts over on our YouTube channel.  So people should be able to see the livestream on either Google+ or on YouTube – and shouldn’t have to login to see the stream, at least on YouTube.

The downside of a Google+ HOA is that you can’t set up a URL that you can promote in advance.  We have to wait until we go live this afternoon here to have a URL we can publicize.  So instead we have to tell people to watch our Google+ page and YouTube channel… which is okay but not ideal.

How You Can Help – Show Us It’s IPv6

We’d like to prove that today’s live stream is going out over IPv6… but we’re here at PLNOG on a IPv4 network, so we have no way of knowing.   What we’d love is if some of you out there who are running the IPvFoo or IPvFox browsers add-ons/extensions could capture some screenshots and let us know as a reply to a post on our Google+ page. What I am looking for is something like this:

Googleplus-ipv6.jpg

That can show which of the various connections are using IPv6.

If you are interested in helping, please monitor this post on our Google+ page so that you can see if others have already sent some in.  We would appreciate several different screenshots (but we don’t need 100! 🙂 ).

And if it turns out that we don’t see any streaming over IPv6… well… it will be worth the attempt – and we will figure this out eventually!

The Technical Setup

For those curious, I’m using a Canon Vixia camera connected via HDMI to a Blackmagic Intensity Extreme box that connects into my MacBook Pro.  On my MBP I’m running Wirecast software as an encoder that will then broadcast out to Google+.  I also have a Logitech HD webcam ready as a standby.  I have a feed coming into my camera from the house audio so that I’m getting the event microphones.  I’m then monitoring the audio from headphones connected to my MBP.

And, being paranoid about ensuring I capture the content, I’m recording the video stream locally on my MBP as a backup.

We’ll see… let the grand experiment begin in about 3.5 hours…
