APNIC42

Dates: 28 September–5 October 2016
Location: Colombo, Sri Lanka
Conference Website: APNIC42
Venue: Hilton Colombo


Synopsis

  • This is a technical workshop, made up of lectures and hands-on lab work, to teach the ISIS and BGP skills required for the configuration and operation of large-scale networks that make up the Internet.

Target Audience

  • Technical staff who are now building or operating a wide area service provider network with international and/or multi-provider connectivity, or considering participation at an Internet Exchange point, or considering deploying IPv6 across their infrastructure and to their end users.

Pre-requisites

  • It is assumed that the workshop participants are proficient with a router command line interface, have a good understanding of OSPF or ISIS, as well as experience with using BGP in an operational network.
  • This workshop is not an introduction. Participants are expected to have already successfully completed the APRICOT IPv4/IPv6 Routing Workshop or have demonstrable equivalent experience.
  • The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.
  • Participants are required to bring laptops with working wireless.

Workshop topics

  • ISIS design and best practices for Service Provider networks
  • BGP attributes and policy
  • BGP scalability (including Route Reflectors and Communities)
  • Aggregation
  • BGP multihoming techniques (redundancy and load balancing)
  • ISP best practices
  • Peering best practices
  • IXP design and best practices
  • IPv6 Protocol and Standards
  • IPv6 extensions for routing protocols
  • IPv6 addressing and address planning
  • IPv6 transition techniques
  • IPv6 deployment case study

Synopsis

  • This technical workshop is made up of lectures and hands-on lab exercises to teach both basic and advance concepts of MPLS, MPLS VPN (both L3 & L2), Traffic Engineering Techniques, MPLS network design principles, LDP, and BGP as a signalling protocol etc.
  • The course includes considerable practical work based on IPv4 as well as IPv6 and router configuration commands.

Target Audience

  • Mid or high-level technical staff of an ISP or enterprise that are involved in day-to-day network operation functions.

Pre-requisites

  • It is assumed that participants have a clear understanding of network operations, Internet technologies, the OSI reference model, TCP/IP, and OSPF/IS-IS. They must be fluent in BGP, and/or encouraged to complete one of the APNIC/APRICOT/SANOG/bdNOG BGP Workshops, and have BGP routing protocol and router operating software (i.e Cisco IOS etc) skills.
  • Participants are required to bring laptops with working wireless.

Workshop topics

  • Introduction to MPLS
  • MPLS Label Distribution Protocol
  • MPLS LDP configuration (Lab exercise)
  • MPLS Layer 3 VPN concept & architecture
  • MPLS L3 VPN configuration (Lab exercise)
  • MPLS Layer 2 VPN concept & architecture
  • MPLS L2 VPN configuration (Lab exercise)
  • MPLS traffic engineering
  • MPLS traffic engineering (Lab exercise)
  • IPv6 and MPLS VPN (6VPE/6PE)
  • InterAS L3 VPN service

Synopsis

  • The objective of this workshop is to examine the elements involved in establishing and maintaining security for a network, and building an understanding and familiarity with their operation.
  • Device and network infrastructure security is examined with a focus on establishing a robust, stable, and secure network while protecting the data and processes that occur in the network.
  • The workshop also looks at the nature and structure of network attacks and the motivation that drives such online malicious activity. The types of tools that are used in modern attacks, who is behind them, and the impact they have are also discussed. The course further examines the actions and processes that can be used to identify, mitigate, and respond to such attacks. The role and impact of botnets will also be discussed in detail covering botnet operation, functionality, and control.

Target Audience

  • Engineers, Network Managers and Operators, and Security policy makers who are interested in network security and want to gain an understanding of the threats they face and how to mitigate such threats.

Pre-requisites

  • It is assumed that participants have a basic understanding of network operations and Internet technologies.

Workshop topics

  • Network Security Fundamentals
  • Security in layers
  • Anatomy of an attack
  • Attack types
  • Identification and mitigation
  • Trends
  • Security Protocols
  • Cryptography and applications
  • IPsec
  • PGP
  • SSL
  • Host and infrastructure security
  • Network analysis and forensics
