In about 90-ish minutes, during the session block from 16:00-17:30 local time in Dublin, Ireland, our Internet Society colleague Andrei Robachevsky will be co-moderating a panel about routing resiliency and anti-spoofing of routes and IP addresses. You can watch and listen live at:
As noted in the RIPE 66 Meeting Plan, the panel comes after two talks related to DNS security (that also look quite interesting). The session block starts at 16:00 – we expect the panel will probably start somewhere between 16:30 – 17:00.
A description of the panel is:
Panel: Seven Years of Anti-Spoofing: What Happened Since the RIPE Task Force and What Still Needs to be Done
Tuesday, 14 May, in the 16:00-17:30 block
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 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.
FYI, if you would like to reach either Jan Zorz or I to meet with us while we are here at RIPE66, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
