Chris Grundemann At NANOG62 This Week Talking BCOP

NANOG 62 LogoAre you at NANOG 62 in Baltimore, MD, this week?  If so, look for our Chris Grundemann (see team photo) who is there all week.

Chris is primarily at NANOG for the Best Current Operational Practices (BCOP) Track happening today from 4:30 to 6:00pm US EDT in the “Maryland Suites” room.   Chris was very active with this BCOP work in NANOG before joining the Internet Society and remains closely connected to what is going on.  As we’ve written about in the past, our team here is working to help facilitate the creation of regional BCOP documentation efforts around the globe and a good bit of what Chris expects to be doing at NANOG 62 is speaking with operators about what other BCOP documents could be written.

He’ll also be speaking with people about all the work we’re doing here to promote IPv6, DNSSEC, TLS and technologies to secure BGP.  If you’d like to meet up with him, please drop an email to and he can connect with you there at the show.

Beyond the BCOP session today, which is unfortunately not being webcast, there is an outstanding agenda of presentations this week, many of which will be webcast / live streamed for remote viewing.  Some of the sessions that hit the topics we cover here at Deploy360 include (slides are available for sessions that are already over, and the video recordings should be available soon):

Monday, October 6, 2014

  • Detecting and Quantifying IPv6-based SMTP Abuse
  • Project Turris  (an IPv6-capable and DNSSEC-validating home gateway/router from CZ.Nic)
  • Single Pass Load Balancing with Session Persistence in IPv6 Network

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

  • DNS Track (unfortunately not webcast)

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

  • Adventures in RPKI (non)Deployment

There are a great range of other talks on the NANOG 62 agenda that may be of interest, too.  I’m personally interested in the talk on Thursday (right before the RPKI talk) from Tim Stronge at TeleGeography about submarine cables as I just find that whole area intriguing.

All in all it should be a great event – and if you want to learn more about what we are doing and want to provide some feedback about what you could use help with to get started with IPv6, DNSSEC and other technologies, please do find Chris and say hello!

Routing and IPv6 Training Courses at NANOG 62

NANOGOn Sunday, 5 October 2014, just before the back-to-back NANOG 62 / ARIN 34 meetings in Baltimore, Maryland (USA), the NANOG Education Series will present Routing Fundamentals and IPv6 Routing Fundamentals at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore Hotel. From the site:

This is a great opportunity for budding engineers or graduate students, as well as current Internet technicians, to learn best practices, refresh on routing skills, gain access to industry thought leaders and gain knowledge that will advance/grow careers.

Each class includes a full day of instruction, lunch, snacks and a sponsored evening social where you can mingle with Internet industry veterans.

Price also includes access to the first day of NANOG 62 which takes place on October 6-8, 2014 and will offer a great opportunity to network with colleagues, freshen-up skills, learn advanced networking techniques, and discover new network applications.

A little more information about each class:

Routing Fundamentals
(Information | Registration)

This course is developed to teach the theory and practices behind designing a reliable and stable network. In addition, the course addresses best practices and techniques for troubleshooting and maintenance of these networks ensuring practical and reliable routing fundamentals are applied.

The course is outlined in seven-parts that include both lecture and hands-on experiences to ensure attendees gain the full grasp of the concepts discussed. The course outline is as follows:

  • The OSI Model
  • Lab 1: build the basic OSPF network
  • Principles of routing – Lab 2:  build basic iBGP with route-reflection
  • BGP in detail – Lab 3: build eBGP peering with basic policy
  • Routing policy in detail
  • Peering Negotiations
  • Lab 4: Build the negotiated network

IPv6 Routing Fundamentals
(Information | Registration)

This course is designed for network and system engineers looking to understand the new features and operational characteristics of networks that include IPv6. It will provide a solid introduction of IPv6 and the foundational knowledge required to configure networking software, common operating systems and devices in order to migrate and support IPv6.

The course is outlined in seven-parts that include both lecture and hands-on experiences to ensure attendees gain the full grasp of the concepts discussed. The course outline is as follows:

  • IPv6 address overview
  • Bootstrapping IPv6-related protocols and mechanisms
  • Overview of routing protocols and changes since IPv4 in RIP, OSPF, ISIS and BGP
  • Simple IP routing Transition mechanisms
  • IPv6 configuration on various operating systems
  • Simple device configuration
  • DEMO:  Installation and configuration of Dual Stack router

If you’re planning to attend NANOG 62, ARIN 34, or you live near or will be in Baltimore, MD in October, this could be a great opportunity to learn more from top industry experts.
