Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) compliance

MANRS (Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security) is an Internet Society initiative which outlines a number of best practices for configuring internet-connected networks. Four simple actions are recommended, with a wealth of information describing these on the MANRS website: These are aimed at increasing routing security across the internet, by stopping attacks which are dependent on IP address spoofing and route hijacking. Research and education networks have been involved in the development and rollout of MANRS since its inception, with Warrick Mitchell being a co-chair of the MANRS Advisory Group. To put in place these recommendations, AARNet and university network teams need to work together to complete some simple configuration and administration tasks. This presentation will describe the actions required – usually less than fifteen minutes of work – which will result in our entire Australian R&E network achieving MANRS compliance.

Speaker: Warrick Mitchell, AARNet and co-chair MANRS Advisory Group
