[Webinar] The Significance of Routing Security: Safeguarding the Critical Infrastructure

Routing security is paramount in safeguarding critical infrastructures, such as financial institutions, energy grids, telecommunications networks, healthcare systems, and government entities. With threats constantly evolving, following basic routing practices are essential to prevent unauthorized access, data interception, and disruptive attacks.

By implementing basic authentication mechanisms, adopting secure routing protocols, and promoting collaboration among stakeholders, organizations can enhance their security posture, mitigate risks, and ensure the integrity and availability of vital infrastructure services.

In this webinar, we will explore:

  1. The important aspects of network security, including route filtering, anti-spoofing techniques, implementing Resource Public Key Infrastructure Route Origin Validation (RPKI ROV), and updating Internet Routing Registry (IRR) and PeeringDB with real-life examples. 
  2. Key information for legacy address holders (organizations that received their IP addresses before 1998), including their options for accessing advanced routing security services and locking-in lower fees from their IP address registry, American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN.net).
