Dear Colleagues,

Our second webinar on securing Internet routing for 2021 is on the topic of Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI).

RPKI facilitates the validation of routing information by other network operators on a global scale and forms one of the fundamental building blocks of routing security on the Internet.

As a network operator, creating RPKI a Route Origin Authorisation (ROA) object(s) that cover all the prefixes you advertise to your BGP peers is the best common operational practice. It is also one of the Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS') actions that a network operator can implement to demonstrate a commitment to running a safe and resilient Internet. 

By the end of this session, you  should be able to:

	• Explain the different vulnerabilities within the BGP protocol
	• Choose a suitable RPKI  implementation model for your  network  
	• Create digital certificates that prevent your routed prefixes from being hijacked on the Internet

Please use the following link to register, and don't forget to add the event to your calendar: 

Date:     Thursday 25th November 2021
Time:     12:30 UTC 

This webinar will be in English.
