Dates: 14 - 18 October 2019
Location: Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
Venue: Lamana Hotel

Target Audience

  • Technical staff who are now building or operating a service provider network with international and/or multi-provider connectivity, or considering participation at an Internet Exchange point.

Synopsis

  • Why do we keep seeing news headlines about major networks not being reachable because traffic got rerouted to somewhere else? BGP mishaps are very common and frighteningly very easy. Examples are malicious route hijacking, mis-origination (fat fingers), and bad filters (route leaks). We need better mechanism to ensure no one can inject false information into the global routing system.
  • This workshop will look at current tools/techniques, how rPKI is just a piece in the puzzle, and what we should do to secure the internet routing instead of waiting for an ideal solution that fixes all issues.

Pre-requisites

  • It is assumed that the workshop participants have a working knowledge of OSPF/IS-IS and BGP fundamentals, along with knowledge on how to use a router command line interface.
