  • Why are BGP mishaps are very common and frighteningly very easy - malicious route hijacking, mis-origination (fat fingers), and route leaks (bad filters). We need better mechanism(s) to ensure no one can inject false information into the global routing system that easily.
  • This workshop will look at at current tools/techniques, how RPKI is just a piece in the puzzle, and what we should all do to secure Internet routing

Target Audience

  • Anyone interested in understanding issues with BGP (Internet routing) security and practising good hygiene, including filtering based on ROAs.


  • This workshop is not an introduction - It is assumed that the workshop participants have a working knowledge IP routing, along with know how to use a router command line interface.
  • The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.

Other Requirements
