Implementation of MANRS Actions
- Action 1: Prevent propagation of incorrect routing information RENU implements policy-based filtering with all BGP Peerings. The policies play key role in sieving all routes in and out of the RENU network. They operate in whitelist mode where RENU explicitly permits wanted routes and all the other unwanted routes are rejected. The policies are updated whenever a new customer is added to the network. Legitimacy of IPs generated by customers is checked using the PHPIPAM tool.
- Action 3: Facilitate global operational communication and coordination Our up-to-date contact information has been published in both the peeringDB and the AFRINIC databases. Some of the contact information published includes the NOC contact - [email protected] / +256783979515.
- Action 4: Facilitate validation of routing information on a global scale - The link to our peering policy is https://renu.ac.ug/peeringpolicy.html - RENU has valid and signed Route Origination Authorisations (ROAs) for both IPv4 and IPv6 prefixes as shown in the https://bgp.he.net/AS327687#_prefixes
Why Research and Education Network for Uganda (RENU) Supports MANRS
RENU joins MANRS to improve its security posture on the internet by acting upon and deploying MANRS actions that can improve the security of the global routing table. For a long time, multiple routing incidents such as route hijacks, route leaks and IP address spoofing have occurred on the internet causing network outages and cost implications to many companies. RENU also wants to ease collaboration with other network operators thus encouraging stability and reliability on the internet.Senior Networks Engineer - Research and Education Network for Uganda (RENU)
