Target Audience

  • Anyone interested to understand the RPKI framework and how it helps secure Internet Routing.


  • 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(s) to ensure no one can inject false information into the global routing system that easily.
  • This tutorial will look at current route filtering tools/techniques, how RPKI is just a piece in the puzzle, and what we should do to secure the internet routing.


For those who manage IP resources for your organisations (technical or corporate contacts), please do come with MFA (OTP) enabled for your MyAPNIC account, as well as ensure you have permission from your Corporate Contacts to certifiy your resources - let us create ROAs for your prefixes!

This tutorial is not an introduction. It is assumed that the participants have a working knowledge of:

  • IP Routing (esp BGP)
  • How to use a router command line interface (IOS syntax).
  • Basic Linux command line (CLI) skills.
