Reflecting Back on RIPE 77: Big Gains on Diversity Initiatives
Amanda Gowland — 29 Oct 2018

It’s been a couple of weeks since we walked away from RIPE 77; another record breaking RIPE Meeting that welcomed 800 attendees from 64 countries at the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam. This was the third meeting at which we organised a Women in Tech Lunch, the second meeting we offered on-site childcare, the first meeting we had a mentoring programme and the first meeting where a presentation about RIPE Meeting diversity made it into the plenary programme.… Read more

The RPKI Observatory: A New Website Aiming to Help Reduce RPKI Misconfigurations
The RPKI Observatory: A New Website Aiming to Help Reduce RPKI Misconfigurations
nusenu nusenu — 17 Oct 2018

In this post I'll cover why it is important to take care of RPKI misconfigurations, what the impact of ignoring them is, how network operators can easily determine whether they are affected by a specific RPKI misconfiguration and how significantly the amount of RPKI unreachable IP space changed over the course of just a few weeks.… Read more

iSEND: IPv6 SEcure Neighbor Discovery Implementation for Android Devices
Ahmad Alsadeh — 16 Oct 2018

IPv6 SEcure Neighbor Discovery (SEND) is an extension to countermeasure the security threats in IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP). SEND provides address ownership proof, message protection, and router authorisation capabilities. The current lack of robust implementations of SEND at the end user devices limits its deployment and leave the door open for the attacks against NDP. The main goal of iSEND project is to provide an open source implementation of SEND for Linux-based operating system especially for Android devices.… Read more

RIOT in Amsterdam
RIOT in Amsterdam
Martine Sophie Lenders — 15 Oct 2018

The RIOT Summit is the yearly get-together of the community around the RIOT operating system for the Internet of Things (IoT). It aims at bringing together RIOTers, beginners and experts, as well as people interested in the IoT in general. We also welcome decision makers who plan to deploy RIOT in the future. After two successful events, the RIOT Summit moved out of Berlin for the first time. With the kind assistance and sponsorship of the RIPE NCC we were able to host this year's event in Amsterdam in September 2018. As always, the event combined plenary talks, hands-on tutorials, break-out sessions for community discussions and demos spread over two days. … Read more

DOH! DNS over HTTPS explained
Geoff Huston — 12 Oct 2018

If you had the opportunity to re-imagine the DNS, what might it look like? Normally this would be an idle topic of speculation over a beer or two, but maybe there’s a little more to the question these days. We are walking into an entirely new world of the DNS when we start to think about what exactly might be possible when we look at DNS over HTTPS, or as it’s become more commonly known, DOH.… Read more

Gunfight at OK Corral: MPLS vs. Probing
Gunfight at OK Corral: MPLS vs. Probing
Benoit Donnet — 12 Oct 2018

In this article, we investigate the various relationships between MPLS tunnels and standard probing techniques (i.e., ping and traceroute). We investigate several possible MPLS configurations and explain how they interact with measurement techniques. We also provide an external link to an online platform allowing users to test their MPLS configuration.… Read more
