Routing Security SIG

SIG Charter

The SIG will provide a platform to discuss the operational issues and best practices to secure global Internet routing.  The SIG will be the forum for discussion about broader Internet routing security topics including RPKI, IRRd, etc. which are very much related to network operators.  The SIG will act as a forum to develop and clarify deployment of services by APNIC such as RPKI, IRRd, RRDP etc and collect feedback from network operators about what changes they want and how it is positively/negatively impacting their operations. The SIG will focus on information sharing, outreach, capacity building, and other activities that will advance APNIC’s vision for a global, open, stable, and secure Internet.

The SIG will also work as an advisory and supporting organization to review technical elements of policy proposals concerning routing security to advise the APNIC Community.

About the Chair

Name Jocelyn Bateman
Tenure APNIC 56 – APNIC 60

Working for Amazon Web Services (AWS), we actively take steps to steps to increase the security of not only our customers but also help the internet as a whole protect itself. I am therefore familiar with using Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) to secure our announcements and discard invalid ones within our global network.

Additionally, AWS collaborate with other network operators through industry initiatives like Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS), and Internet Society (ISOC) supported initiatives aimed at securing global internet-routing.

I understand that signing our IP-space with a Route Origin Authorisation (ROA) enables the internet as a whole to make sure that AWS, and our customers’, IP addresses can only originate from AWS-authorised autonomous systems (AS), all of which achieves routing security.
