Action 1: Filtering of Route Announcements
QIX has a member portal where the member has to provide their AS-SET so our system generates the prefix-lists. Prefix-lists are generated once a day.If a member doesn't have an AS-SET, they have to manually enter their prefixes in the portal and open a ticket with our support. Support will validate the information provided and may ask to provide more documentation if necessary (e.g. LOAs).
Action 2-1: Offer assistance to its members to maintain accurate routing information in an appropriate repository (IRR and/or RPKI)
Our support team and board members are assisting connecting and existing members to maintain their routing objects in an IRR and promote implementation of RPKI.
Action 3: Protect the peering platform
QIX has Port Security (MAC lockdown) on all ports and generates prefix-lists based on IRR AS-SET. RPKI ROV is also on the roadmap in 2020.
Action 4: Facilitate global operational communication and coordination between network operators
QIX's member portal has a "members" section with a list of ASNs with all their respective operational contacts.
Action 5: Provide monitoring and debugging tools to the members
QIX's member portal has a looking glass that can query both route-servers.
