RIPE 62 Gets Underway

plenary from the top
The first Plenary session of the day opened with a report from the RIPE Meeting Task Force. Andy
Davidson, representing the task force, introduced the RIPE Programme Committee proposal that would ensure that Plenary, tutorial and BoF content is in tune with attendees’ needs by creating a committee with representatives from the RIPE community, the working group chairs, the Middle East Network Operators Group (MENOG), the Eurasia Network Operators’ Group (ENOG) and co-opted members. There was a lot of support for the idea and some lively discussion on it.
There’ll be a short update on this in the Closing Plenary on Friday.

RIPE NCC Membership and Stakeholder Survey 2011

Paul Rendek, RIPE NCC, and Desiree Miloshevic, Oxford Internet Institute, gave an overview of the RIPE NCC Membership and Stakeholder Survey 2011 and encouraged all stakeholders to participate. The survey will be launched on Friday, 6 May and will be available until 10 June. There are five iPads to be won by those who complete the survey. Look out for the url to the survey in your inbox!


stacking it upRandy Bush’s presentation on BGP Security led to an extended discussion on RPKI reliability, the involvement of the RIRs and questions of certification expiration and revocation. Geoff Huston’s presentation on measuring dual-stack performance provoked interesting discussion on tunneling, Teredo and NATs. Joao Damas mentioned the lightening talks that will take place in the Plenary on Wednesday morning.
