APRICOT 2016 – Auckland, New Zealand

First and foremost before talking about APRICOT, I must say I am deeply moved with impact Rohtak (and Haryana) as whole had because of recent Jat agitation. What I find extremely depressing is way current Govt. of Haryana completely failed to control it and the way previous Govt. ministers did best in their interest and completely against the interest of people of Haryana. For now quite hopeful with news that Mr Prakash Singh (one of my favorite IPS officers) who did quite well during his various terms is looking into failure of police. More details about the news here.

I will write more on this later on, not good time right now since tensions have yet to get normal.


Coming to APRICOT 2016 – I had a wonderful time in attending event and this was my first visit to New Zealand as well. This time I presented on “Misused top ASNs” and it went good overall. Link to my presentation here. Also, I had a short video interview with APNIC about my presentation (embedded below).



Also, last month I attended SANOG 27 at Kathmandu, Nepal. My detailed guest blog post about event on APNIC blog here.

bdNOG 4 – Presentation on Misused top ASNs

This week I presented in bdNOG 4 on “Misused top ASNs“. It was a study we at Hurricane Electric did to see how many times AS1, AS2 and AS3 appeared in global routing table between 2010 and 2015. This highlights cases where AS1, AS2 or AS3 appeared as a result of wrong prepend.


My presentation is embedded below:


Overall bdNOG 4 had been a great experience. It’s good to see a nice NOG community actively sharing technical know-how, sharing experiences, and much more. I must say that is something I greatly miss in India. More on bdNOG conference later on.
