A has partnered with APNIC to bring our members this important tutorial on RPKI and ROV. The tutorial will be followed by a social event. If you’re an IAA member and can’t make the tutorial, we’d still love to see you for a drink and some nibbles, so be sure to register now.

Course outline

  • Recent routing incidents
  • Current BGP filtering techniques
  • Resource PKI fundamentals
  • Installation and configuration of RPKI validators
  • BGP filtering with ROA (Route Origin Validation)

Why do we keep seeing news headlines about major networks not being reachable because traffic got rerouted to somewhere else? BGP mishaps are very common and frighteningly easy. Examples are malicious route hijacking, mis-origination (fat fingers), and bad filters (route leaks). We need better mechanism(s) to ensure no one can inject false information into the global routing system that easily. This tutorial will look at current route filtering tools/techniques, how RPKI is just a piece in the puzzle, and what we should do to secure the internet routing.

Course requirements

  • This workshop is for those with a working knowledge of IP Routing (esp BGP), how to use a router command line interface and backing Linux command line skills.
  • Participants are advised to bring their own laptop or desktop computers with high-speed internet access and administrative access to system.
  • It is also recommended that computers have Intel i5 or i7 processor, >=8GB of RAM and 30GB of free hard disk space.
  • Software: SSH Client, Telnet Client, VirtualBox/VMware
  • Confirm Secure SHell (SSH) is allowed from the office or home network to access the lab infrastructure. Test ssh connectivity, try to connect to For example from the CLI type: ssh
