In this post (originally published on the APNIC blog), Cengiz Alaettinoglou gives a brief overview and comparison of the IRR and SIDR security models and shares his thoughts about the chances for these models to succeed.
Some time ago, many people noticed rapid IPv6 deployment growth in Estonia (from 0% to 5% in 4 weeks). Tarko Tikan, from 3249/Elion/Estonian Telecom, explains the reason behind this.
Tony Smith from the APNIC gives an update on the DNS Root Zone Key-Signing and explains how the key-signing-key roll over will be done for the first time.
The Domain Name Service Look-aside Validation Service (DLV) was an idea which was useful in the transition from a non-signed DNSSEC root to the current globally visible DNSSEC trust anchor. Now a significant number of people in the wider Internet may be running (particularly) Linux distributions that out-of-the-box expect the DLV service to be running, and provide valid answers.

During the RIPE 70 Meeting in Amsterdam this week (on 13 May around 10:00 UTC), we experienced a network outage at AMS-IX. Let's see how this was monitored by various tools.
We introduce a new tool to read BGP RIB dump files, called BGPdump2. It has a unique feature, in which users can compare routes from BGP RIB files in the ”diff”-like display format. It is good for checking the correctness of BGP operation by comparing one ISP’s BGP routing table to another ISP’s.
In 2013 and 2014 we looked into measuring Interdomain Routing in Africa using the RIPE Atlas infrastructure. This resulted in a paper published at the PAM (Passive and Active Measurement) 2015 conference. Here we present some highlights of this research.
Now that the RIPE NCC has reached its last /8, some Local Internet Registries (LIRs) are choosing to obtain additional address space from other organisations via the emerging transfer market. Here we examine statistics from the last two and a half years of transfers and visualise per country aggregates on a map.
At the RIPE 69 meeting, the use of the RIPE Database as an Internet Routing Registry (IRR) and it's relationship with other IRRs was raised. But there hasn't been much discussion on options for the way forward since. Based on what was said at RIPE 69 and the few comments made on the mailing list, I feel that some issues might need further clarification and discussion.
