Last week and this week we’ve been highlighting sessions from ION Belfast on 9 September 2014.
At ION Belfast, Rob Evans from JANET moderated an interesting panel entitled “Routing Around Catastrophe.” The three panelists were Nick Hilliard from INEX, freelance consultant Mike Hughes, and Dave Wilson from HEAnet. 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 kinds 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?
