Deploy360 Events IETF Securing Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)

3 Sessions About Securing BGP At IETF89 Next Week

BGPNext week at IETF 89 in London there will be a good bit of discussion around the security and resilience of the Internet’s routing infrastructure.  Given our interest in securing BGP, members of our team will be attending the SIDR, GROW and IDR Working Groups next week and engaging in other routing discussions as well.

My colleague Andrei Robachevsky wrote about routing as part of the IETF 89 “Rough Guide” today and explained some of the activities that will be happening during the week.  I’d encourage you to read his post as he goes into some detail about the different drafts that are being considered by the three working groups.
