Hands-on RPKI

Time 10/16/17 02:30PM-03:20PM

Room Seacliff A

Session Abstract

Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) is a routing security technology designed to address shortcomings in BGP. Specifically, it is too easy for someone to claim ownership of a network address that belongs to somebody else. Adoption of this technology remains low in the ARIN region.

During TechEx 2017 in Miami, the Internet2 Security Working Group decided to run a pilot for the community in order to introduce the technology and investigate any problems in setup, deployment, and operation.

Over the course of the year-long pilot, Internet2 and CAAREN have produced documentation, held online meetings, and created a Slack channel to help community members learn about how to deploy RPKI.

This session will provide an update on activities and discuss barriers to adoption and seek community input on how to continue to lower those barriers. To that end, we will provide hands-on experience to demonstrate how easy it is to create and manage Route Origin Authorizations (ROAs) for campuses and regional networks.

IMPORTANT: To fully participate in the hands-on portion of the session

If you would like to follow along and create your own ROAs, please request access in ARIN's Operational Test & Evaluation environment. Please see our wiki article RPKI Access in ARIN's OT&E for details.

NOTE: This request should be made after 2 October 2017!
