The role of RPKI in securing routing for Research and Education Networks


It has always been seen as wise to secure all types of IP networks, but right now there is more urgency to do so. IP addresses continue to be frequently hijacked and most often to carry out DDoS attacks. Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI), as defined in RFC 6810, was proposed to authenticate the relationship between a prefix and its origination. RPKI adoption brings many advantages, including mitigating the spread of invalid routes caused by accidental or deliberate anomalies. 

With cyberattacks on the rise, the best time to secure the Internet is now. Join us on Wednesday 19th May, 2021 for a webinar titled “The Role of RPKI in Securing Research and Education Networks” In this webinar, we will discuss common network security risks and explore how we should address some of them using RPKI.
