Routing Security is Vital to the Future
and Stability of the Internet

The Internet’s routing foundation has cracks, and they’re growing. Not a single day goes by without dozens of incidents affecting the routing system. Route hijacking, route leaks, IP address spoofing, and other harmful activities can lead to DDoS attacks, traffic inspection, lost revenue, reputational damage, and more. These incidents are global in scale, with one operator’s routing problems cascading to impact others.

Inforum Course: Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security

Routing Security is Vital to the Future and Stability of the Internet

The Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, to work with operators, enterprises, and policymakers to implement crucial fixes needed to eliminate the most common routing threats.

Routing outages or attacks – such as hijacking, leaks, and spoofing – lead to stolen data, lost revenue, reputational damage and more, all on a global scale. MANRS addresses these concerns.

MANRS comprises four simple but concrete steps that will dramatically improve Internet security and reliability. The first two operational improvements eliminate common routing issues and attacks, while the second two procedural steps provide a bridge to universal adoption and decrease the likelihood of future incidents. Full course details is here …
