Why are BGP mishaps very common and frighteningly very easy – malicious route hijacking, mis-origination (fat fingers), and route leaks (bad filters). We need better mechanism(s) to ensure no one can inject false information into the global routing system that easily.

This live online tutorial will look at current tools/techniques, how RPKI is just a piece in the puzzle, and what we should all do to secure Internet routing.

Note: you must attend the theory session on 10 June to attend this lab session on 11 June.


This online tutorial is fee-free.

Target audience

Anyone interested in understanding issues with BGP (Internet routing) security and practising good hygiene, including filtering based on ROAs.


This tutorial is not an introduction – it is assumed that participants have a working knowledge IP routing, along with know how to use a router command line interface.

The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax.
