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.
