IPv6, DNSSEC, Security Videos Online from ION Bucharest

We held ION Bucharest last year alongside the Romanian Network Operators’ Group (RONOG). It took a little longer than usual, but now all the presentations and video archives are available online. As we gear up for ION Islamabad next week on 25 January, this is a chance to get a sneak peak at the type of content we’ll be presenting! Bucharest was filled with IPv6, DNSSEC, DANE, TLS, IETF, and Routing Security information, and now you can watch it all from the comfort of your own device.

Thank you to everyone who joined us in person in Bucharest 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 Bucharest as an ION Conference series sponsor.

Stay tuned to this blog for announcements about the rest of our 2017 ION Conference lineup, 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.)

ION Cape Town: IETF to Africa?

ion-capetown-ai-pngThis week we’re highlighting some of the topics that were covered during ION Cape Town a couple of months back. This was our third ION conference of 2015, and was held in conjunction with South Africa iWeek 2015 which has been South Africa’s leading annual Internet industry conference since 2001.

Our final post for the week is to mention what’s happening in Africa with respect to Internet Standards Development. Whilst the IETF started in 1986 and recently held its 95th meeting in Japan, an IETF meeting has still yet to be held anywhere in Africa and there is believed to be just one RFC (7479) with a sole African authorship.

The reasons for this are many and varied, but IETF participants pay their own way and there have historically not been many participants from Africa in IETF Working Groups. However, the Internet is growing in Africa and there are an increasing number of Internet experts who could be actively involved with the IETF.

The Internet Society is supporting this through its Fellowship to the IETF programme, whilst other IETF awareness activities have been held at the Africa Internet Summit. A 2010 survey by the IAOC also showed that nearly 40% of respondents were in favour of holding an IETF in Africa, so the aim is to mobilise the African Internet community around bringing a meeting to the continent by 2018.

Please help support this initiative by raising awareness of the IETF and identifying individuals who could actively contribute towards making the IETF a truly global standards effort.

Please also check out the other presentations and videos from the conference, as there’s some interesting deployment case studies and trials of the Deploy360 technologies.

Deploy360 Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS)

ION Cape Town: Mind Your MANRS

ion-capetown-ai-pngThis week we’re highlighting some of the topics that were covered during ION Cape Town a couple of months back. This was our third ION conference of 2015, and was held in conjunction with South Africa iWeek 2015 which has been South Africa’s leading annual Internet industry conference since 2001.

Today we turn our attention to the global routing system and the collective responsibility for its resilience and security as discussed by Andrei Robachevsky, one of the ISOC Technology Program Managers. The issue is that BGP is based on global trust and there’s no validation of the legitimacy of routing updates. Whilst RPKI is currently being rolled out by the Regional Internet Registries, this will have limited effectiveness until BGPSEC is fully implemented and more widely deployed.

The consequences are that network prefixes can be hijacked, resulting in denial-of-service, impersonating of a network or service, or traffic interception. Route leaks can also occur, as well as IP spoofing which is the root cause of DDoS attacks.

Whilst tools such as network address prefix and AS-PATH filtering, RPKI and IRR are available to help mitigate these problems, the reality is that the security of your traffic is often reliant on others. Implementing security measures at network interfaces does not solve the wider issues.

The Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) programme therefore aims to promote a culture of collaborative responsibility by defining four concrete actions that network operators should implement. These four ‘Good MANRS’ include:

  • Filtering to prevent propagation of incorrect routing information by ensuring that customers hold the AS numbers and address space they’re announcing.
  • Anti-spoofing filtering to prevent packets with an incorrect source IP address from entering and leaving a network.
  • Facilitate operational communication and coordination between network operators by maintaining globally accessible and up-to-date information.
  • Validation of routing information on a global scale by publicly documenting routing resources that are intended to be advertised to external parties.

MANRS is a commitment by network operators to support the principles of the programme and implement at least one of the four actions for the majority of its infrastructure. There is a growing list of participants, but routing security is the sum of all contributions and a critical mass will raise the baseline and persuade others they should participate.

If you’re interested in finding out more about MANRS, please head to the Routing Resilience Manifesto. You can also find out more from the START HERE! page of the Deploy360 website.
