APNIC 54 | SGNOG 9 | Singapore

Anurag Bhatia
Upcoming presentations Next week will be APNIC 54 conference followed by SGNOG 9 (Singapore Network Operators Group) event. I will be attending both events. At APNIC 54 I will be doing a short tutorial on “Running Containers in Production” with CI/CD pipelines with a focus on its utility in network engineering and also a panel discussion on “World IPv6 2022 - the story behind the events”. This should be fun!

Tracking Indian RPKI data

Anurag Bhatia
So based on my friend - Abdul Awal’s tweet, I started looking at the latest RPKI ROA data for India. His Tweet came when I was in the middle of moving my blog from WordPress running over LXC containers to now WordPress over docker with Bitnami image. Bit of optimisation is still pending. My routing security project with @nsrcworld & @mozilla started in Oct-19 to improve #RPKI deployment in South Asia+Myanmar.

Missing IRINN route objects & outage!

Anurag Bhatia
A friend of mine buzzed me yesterday about his missing route objects. Later multiple other ISPs told the same story which triggered me to put this as a question on INNOG Mailing list. Many folks replied of missing route objects there and it seems to be limited to IRINN members only. I also asked the same question on APNIC mailing list and it was again confirmed about the issue. Before I proceed further, here’s what it is all about.

DNSSEC deployment across the ccTLDs

Anurag Bhatia
While I am spending time on APNIC’s security workshop here at APNIC 46, I got curious about DNSSEC deployment across ccTLDs. For those who may be unaware, DNSSEC adds signature the DNS responses making it possible to cryptographically verify a DNS query response. Out of 254 ccTLDs, 125 support DNSSEC with a published DS record (at least that is what I get when I check their zone) and 129 do not support it as yet.

Calculating IPv6 subnets outside the nibble boundary

Anurag Bhatia
Often this comes into the subnetting discussion by my friends who are deploying IPv6 for the first time. How do you calculate subnets outside the 4-bit nibble boundary? This also happens to be one of starting points of APNIC IPv6 routing workshop where I occasionally instruct as community trainer. So what is a Nibble boundary? In IPv6 context, it refers to 4 bit and any change in multiple of 4 bits is easy to calculate.
