Why do we keep seeing news headlines about major networks not being reachable because traffic got rerouted to somewhere else? BGP mishaps are very common and frighteningly very easy. Examples are malicious route hijacking, mis-origination (fat fingers), and bad filters (route leaks). We need better mechanism to ensure no one can inject false information into the global routing system that easily.

This workshop will look at current tools/techniques, how Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) is just a piece in the puzzle, and what we should to secure the internet routing instead of waiting for an ideal solution that fixes all issues.
