Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS)

Workshop Sunday 31 March and Monday 1 April 2019 (2 days)

Attendance on both days is necessary to obtain a completion certificate

This is an intermediate-level technical workshop, consisting of lectures and hands-on lab to enhance Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) skills following current industry best practices. The course uses both IPv4 and IPv6 in a dual-stack infrastructure.

  • Overview of IGP
  • Overview of BGP (Attributes and Path Selection Process)
  • BGP traffic engineering tools (Local Pref, MED, AS path prepend, communities etc)
  • BGP Operations and Security (RFC7454)
  • BCP38 (RFC2827) – Network Ingress Filtering
  • BCP84 (RFC3704) – Ingress Filtering for Multihomed Networks
  • Overview of the Internet Routing Registry (with RIPE NCC Support)
  • Introduction to RPSL
  • Introduction to RPKI (ROA and ROV)
  • LAB (online lab)

Target Audience:
Network Engineers working in small and large enterprise networks, ISPs, NREN and IXPs.

Workshop Requirements:
This is not a beginner-level routing course. Anyone with experience running a network with a reasonable understanding of routing protocols is eligible for this workshop. The online lab has Cisco IOS and Juniper JunOS platform (candidates can choose only one platform).

Measurements and Tools Tuesday, 2 April 2019

The Measurements and Tools Training Course is an introductory hands-on course to RIPEstat and RIPE Atlas.

RIPEstat is a web-based interface providing information about IP address space, Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs), and related information for hostnames and countries, all in one place. It provides easy access to registration and routing data, DNS data, geographical information, abuse contacts, blacklists and more from the RIPE NCC’s internal datasets as well as from external sources.
RIPE Atlas is a vast Internet measurement platform that employs a global network of over 10,000 probes to actively measure Internet connectivity and reachability. The platform provides an unprecedented understanding of the state of the Internet in real time.
