How can we work together to improve the security and resilience of the global routing system?
That is the question posed by the "Routing Resilience Manifesto" site with the suggested answer launched today of the "Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) document”, to which a number of network operators have already signed on as participants, including: Comcast, Level 3, NTT, RUNNet, ClaraNet, SURFnet, SpaceNet, KPN and CERNET.
To participate a network operator has to agree to implement several actions:
The overall objectives of the MANRS initiative are:
As more network operators / service providers sign on to the MANRS document and do go ahead and implement the actions, we will collectively be increasing the security and resiliency of the overall Internet — which will make the Internet that much more useful for communication, collaboration and commerce.
If everyone were to mind their Internet routing MANRS… we'd all be able to get along much better!
