Nominee Statement

My name is Arturo Servin and I work at Google. I have been working on Routing Security for some years, initially at LACNIC leading the initial effort for its RPKI system development. Now at Google working to improve our internal routing security operations that included BGP filters based on IRR, fixing and automating our RPKI and IRR resource publishing and also with all our interconnections partners, ISPs, Internet Exchange Points, and other CDNs and Cloud providers to promote better routing practices.

I  have been working with MANRS for a few years now, initially as part of the team that worked to make Google a member of MANRS for the Network Operators Program and later a founding member of the CDN and Cloud Provider Program. Among other activities where I have participated on MANRS I was also part of the initial MANRS Advisory Group that was the foundation of the new Steering Committee that now is calling for election.

If I am elected as part of the new Steering Committee I am planning to do my best to promote MANRS among the technical community and continue to work on finding ways to solve our long standing problems on Routing Security on the Internet.
