Convergent Events August Update


It’s been another busy couple of months of IAA Convergent Events, both online and in-person. In June, Professor Darryl Veitch delivered an online encore of his popular Melbourne presentation, “Can I trust my clock? Why NTP is a fail.” Darryl examined the Network Time Protocol, just how bad it can be and some new ways forward. If you would like another chance to see this fascinating talk, head to the IAA YouTube channel.

In July the RPKI/ROV Tutorials, in partnership with APNIC Academy, were back. This time we hosted in Canberra and Sydney, giving members the opportunity to receive free training (typically valued at $80), followed by the chance to network at our social events. Thanks to those who were able to join us!
