Introducing the Routing Resilience Manifesto

How can we work together to improve the security and resilience of the global routing system?

A small group of network operators has been working on defining a minimal – but absolutely feasible – package of recommended measures that, if deployed on a wide scale, could result in visible improvements to the security and resilience of the global routing system. Many operators are well ahead and already implement much more than the proposed recommendations. But we believe that gathering support for these relatively small steps could pave the road to more significant actions.

We called this set of recommendations a Routing Resilience Manifesto – you can now read the HTML version or download the PDF.

This initial version of the Manifesto was drafted by a small group, but we need a wider community review, your feedback, and, ultimately, your support to make this initiative fly. It was already presented at several venues, like RIPE and NANOG, and now we open it for a more detailed review.

The objective is to publish this Manifesto along with a growing list of supporters – operators that publicly commit to collective responsibility and collaboration for routing resilience and security and implement the measures defined in the Manifesto.

What do you think? Would you publicly commit to this Manifesto? Why or why not? How can we make it better? How can we work together to make the Internet a safer, more secure place?
