Stolen cryptocurrency, hijacked traffic blocking access to whole countries, derailing vital Web resources for thousands of people. Routing used to fly under the radar. As long as incidents weren’t too bad, no one asked too many questions, and routing security never made it to the top of the to-do list. But these days, routing incidents are regularly making the news, executives are getting nervous, and engineers are under pressure to make sure their network isn’t next. The problem is, you cannot secure your own network entirely by yourself. But you can help secure the global routing system as a whole. We have a collective responsibility to ensure a secure routing infrastructure. Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security – MANRS – is a global initiative of network operators and IXPs to reduce the most common routing threats. MANRS offers an opportunity for a globally adopted, systemic approach to routing security. This talk will present detailed statistics about what’s happening in the global routing system, and offer ways to leverage the MANRS security baseline and demonstrate commitment to the security and sustainability of the Internet. It will cover recent developments, such as launching the new MANRS IXP Programme, aimed at scaling up the adoption of security practices.
