Next week in Dublin, Ireland, the RIPE 66 Meeting will take place from May 13-17 and a number of Internet Society technical staff will be onsite including two of us from Deploy360: Jan Zorz and myself (Dan York). The meeting plan has a great number of topics of interest, but two in particular that we’ll be tracking include:
Best Current Operational Practices – Efforts from the Internet Society
Monday, 13 May 16:00-17:00 (Irish Standard Time – currently UTC+1)
Jan will be speaking about the work he has been doing to explore how information from the operations community can best be made more widely available – and asking for feedback from those attending.
Panel: Seven Years of Anti-Spoofing: What Happened Since the RIPE Task Force and What Still Needs to be Done
Tuesday, 14 May 16:00-17:00
Our Internet Society colleague Andrei Robachevsky along with Benno Overeinder of NLnet Labs will be moderating this panel of network operators, security experts and vendors to dive into the issue of spoofed IP addresses and how they contribute to Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks. Given that there are known mitigation approaches such as BCP 38, why are DDoS attacks still so common? What can the larger operator community be doing to combat IP spoofing?
This last session is extremely relevant to the new Routing Resiliency/Security section of the site that we are seeking to build out, so we’ll definitely be listening to the conversations and feedback.
Naturally we’ll also be paying attention to these working group sessions:
The event will be streamed live and as soon as we have that information we’ll update this post.
We’re very much looking forward to the RIPE 66 event – if you are going to be there please do say hello!
