MANRS Network Operators
Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing security
Network operators interested in joining the MANRS initiative can sign up online, at no cost. www.manrs.org/isps/join/
Internet Exchange Providers interested in the IXP Programme are encouraged to visit www.manrs.org/ixps to learn more and join.
The MANRS initiative expects participating operators to complete the first three of the following actions, with the fourth considered an extension of the minimum package:
Prevent the propagation of incorrect routing information. Operators can ensure the correctness of their own announcements and those from their customers to adjacent networks through various network routing prefix filtering techniques.
Prevent traffic with spoofed source IP addresses. Operators can implement a system enabling source address validation, such as unicast reverse path forwarding (uRPF) and anti-spoofing filtering, to prevent packets with incorrect source IP addresses from entering and leaving the network.
Facilitate global operational communication and coordination between network operators. This common but effective way of addressing problems in Internet routing simply entails an operator noticing an issue and then calling someone who is able to fix it.
Facilitate validation of routing information on a global scale. This advanced action requires operators to have publicly documented routing policy, ASNs and prefixes intended to be advertised to external parties. Global validation tools could include Internet Routing Registries (IRRs) and Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI). end of quote
