Video: IP-Spoofing / Routing Best Practices Panel at RIPE 66

Can we stop the spoofing of IP addresses? Is the problem serious enough to warrant high-level attention? Are there best practices for routing that the larger community should be engaging in? What are the real challenges with stopping IP spoofing? These are the questions addressed in a recent post by our colleague Andrei Robachevsky, “Can we stop IP-spoofing in the Internet?” and a corresponding panel at the RIPE 66 event in Dublin, Ireland, in mid-May.

If you are are interested in this topic of how we increase the security and resiliency of routing, we highly recommend both reading Andrei’s article and listening to the panel presentation from Dublin. (Click on the image below to go to the RIPE66 page where you can view the video.)


Slides are also available but they were primarily used to frame the introduction to the panel. The real content is in the panel discussion itself.

Please visit our Anti-Spoofing topic area to learn more about this general topic of how to make the Internet’s routing infrastructure more resilient and secure.

Watch LIVE Today – RIPE66 Talk On Best Current Operational Practices

RIPE 66 LogoCurious to know more about what we are interested in doing to help with sharing of best current operational practices (BCOP)? And with getting operator feedback incorporated into the standards process?

In about 90 minutes, at 16:00 local time in Dublin, Ireland, our team member Jan Zorz will be presenting on this topic and asking for feedback from the RIPE 66 attendees. You can watch and listen live at:

Jan’s slides about BCOP are available for viewing now.

Jan’s session is in the Plenary block from 16:00 – 17:30 and is listed after what also sounds like an interesting presentation from Michele McCann about “Building The Case For Africa”. I suspect his talk may happen around 16:30.  It will be recorded and available for later viewing.

For those who are here at RIPE 66, Jan will also be hosting a “Birds of a Feather” (BOF) session from 18:00-19:00 in the main room of the RIPE 66 meeting where he will be seeking further feedback from attendees.

If you would like to reach either Jan or I to meet with us while we are here at RIPE66, please send us an email at

Watch LIVE Today – RIPE66 Panel On Routing Resiliency

RIPE 66 Logo

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
