Routing Resilience Manifesto and MANRS

Moderator: Kevin Meynell

Panelists: Fakrul Alam (APNIC), F. M. Rashed Amin (Link3 Technologies), Jan Žorž (Internet Society)

The Routing Resilience Manifesto initiative, underpinned by the “Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS)” document that includes a set of actionable recommendations, aims to help network operators around the world work together to improve the security and resilience of the global routing system. In this session, we’ll explain the basic principles outlined in MANRS, how to sign up and support the effort, and how to get involved in helping to further increase global routing security.

Case study report of Bangladesh IPv6 deployment

Abdul Awal (BDREN)

This presentation will have two parts. Firstly, it will focus on IPv6 deployment status in Bangladesh. The current statistics from different sources will be analyzed and represented there. Though the deployment trend is upward, still not many ISPs are IPv6 enabled. The corporate and enterprise networks as well as the government websites are still running IPv4 only. In this part I’ll also talk about the challenges and how to overcome them. In the second part of the presentation, I will share my experience of IPv6 deployment planning and challenges in Bangladesh Research and Education Network (BdREN). Right now BdREN is running a very limited scale pilot network with only six universities. But soon it will migrate to its countrywide larger network that is going to connect more than 34 universities with dual stack connectivity from day 1. I was directly involved in the planning and deployment of the network and faced many challenges and gathered valuable experience that I would like to share in the presentation. I would talk about IPv6 address planning and migration planning. The presentation would give an overall idea about the IPv6 deployment steps.

What’s Happening at the IETF? Internet Standards and How to Get Involved

Kevin Meynell (Internet Society)

What’s happening at the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)? What RFCs and Internet-Drafts are in progress related to IPv6, DNSSEC, Routing Security/Resiliency, and other key topics? We’ll give an overview of the ongoing discussions in several working groups and discuss the outcomes of recent Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions, and provide a preview of what to expect in future discussions.

IPv6 in Asia: Laggards and Trends

Moderator: Kevin Meynell (Internet Society)

Panelists: Asela Galappattige (Sri Lanka Telecom)  Nurul Islam Roman (APNIC); Sumon Ahmed Sabir (Fiber@Home) & Matsuzaku Yoshinobu (IIJ)

IPv6 has been available from the Regional Internet Registries for more than 15 years. Adoption of the new address system in APAC countries, however, has been lagging. According to the most recent State of the Internet report by Akamai, while connection speeds are surging in the region, not a single Asian country made it in the top 10 list for IPv6 adoption. As far as Bangladesh is concerned, an article in the Jagannath University Journal of Science last year pointed to “lack of awareness, inefficient planning and apathy” as likely impediments. This panel will assess regional and countrywide deployment status and consider related trends, such the impact of Internet of Things (IoT) technology on IPv6 and the potential use of IPv6 protocols in DDoS attacks.
