Improving The Resilience And Security Of The Internet’s Routing: An ION Toronto Panel

ION Toronto LogoThis week we’ll be highlighting sessions from our last ION Conference in Toronto, Canada.

At ION Toronto in November,we had a very interesting panel discussion on how to improve the resilience and security of the Internet’s routing infrastructure. The panelists were:

  • Paul Andersen, EGATE Networks Inc. (Moderator)
  • Merike Kaeo, Internet Identity
  • Sandra Murphy, Sparta, Inc.
  • Eric Osterweil, Verisign
  • Andrew Sullivan, Dyn, Inc.

From the session abstract:

How do we improve the resilience and security of the Internet’s underlying routing infrastructure?  While Internet routing has worked well over the years, there have been instances where errors and misconfiguration have caused stability issues. Malicious attackers have also created denial of service attacks and other issues by spoofing IP addresses and manipulating routing tables. What are the best practices we can use to help mitigate these kind of attacks? What new routing technologies or standards are being developed to address these threats? How can we as an Internet community make the Internet more resilient and secure?

The video of the panel is now on YouTube.

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us in Toronto in person or via the webcast (especially if you joined us over IPv6!). It was a great event thanks to our co-location partner, the Canadian ISP Summit, and our sponsor, Afilias.

We’d love to hear your feedback on these sessions or the ION Conferences as a whole. Talk to us!
