BoF, Tutorials and Workshop

RIPE NCC Measurements BoF

When: Thursday, 5 May, 17:45-19:00
Were: St John II Room
Presenter: Daniel Karrenberg

The RIPE NCC is taking a new direction with its measurements. At RIPE 61 we launched RIPE Atlas, a next generation active measurements network. We have 350 probes deployed so far and the first RIPE Atlas services are in development.

At RIPE 62, we are launching RIPEstat (beta), a new one-stop-shop for all IP address and AS number information. This Measurements BoF is your opportunity to influence these services from their earliest stages of development, engage face-to-face with developers and discuss your operational needs with fellow users to ensure that RIPE Atlas and RIPEstat serve your purposes fully.

Bring a friend! We look forward to seeing you there.

RPKI Tutorial

When: Monday, 2 May, 09:00-12:30
Where: Terminal Room
Presenters: Randy Bush, Sandra Murphy, Michael Elkins

BGP Origin Validation based on the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) is being tested and prototype deployment has begun. It protects against accidental mis-origination, the most common routing error we see today. The documents are in the Secure Inter-Domain Routing (SIDR) working group of the IETF and are now going through the RFC process.

You can see the workflow for using the full implementation in open source RPKI software from GUI to running router (router code, not open-source).

There will be a half-day workshop where operators can play with the entire system, end to end. Attendees can create RPKI objects with the GUI and configure routers to deal with valid and invalid routing. The more adventurous sysadmin attendees with access to a UNIX, Linux, or MacOSX environment can even build and install the open-source RPKI software.

IPv6 for LIRs TutorialTutorial at RIPE 60

When: Monday, 2 May, 09:00-11:00

Where: St John II Room
Trainer: Ferenc Csorba, Marco Hogewoning

The focus of the IPv6 for LIRs Tutorial is to raise awareness about IPv6 and the current best practices for deploying it. We also cover IPv6 Internet addressing policies and how to obtain IPv6 address space.

NOTE: If you have already deployed IPv6 on your network, this tutorial may not be appropriate for you. Please read the outline below.

After this tutorial you will:

  • Be able to create a deployment plan for IPv6 in your organisation
  • Understand the differences and similarities between IPv4 and IPv6
  • Know why deploying IPv6 will enable continued IP networking growth
  • Understand the implications of running out of available IPv4 address space

Tutorial Content:

1. The Internet Registry System
2. IPv4?
3. IPv6 Basics
4. Addressing Plans
5. Getting IPv6 Address Space
6. Deploying IPv6

Network Complexity Workshop

When: Monday, 2 May, 17:30-19:00
Where: St John II Room
Presenters: Michael Behringer

Network complexity is the root cause of outages that are hard to understand and troubleshoot. In this BoF we discuss cases of “catastrophic failure”, trying to understand the root causes and influencing factors of complex outages. The overall goal is to understand how to better categorise and control complexity.
