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.
APNIC and RIPE NCC are doing a hackathon at APRICOT 2018. It just started today with some light interaction with various participating members yesterday. The theme of the hackathon is around IPv6. Many cool projects were suggested yesterday and teams started working today on certain shortlisted projects like: A tool for ranking CDNs - A tool based on RIPE Atlas data to rank CDNs based on latency across different regions.
RIPE NCC is running an excellent project called RIPE Atlas from few years. This is one of largest distributed network measurement projects where thousands of users host small devices called RIPE Atlas Probes on their networks, home connections, datacenters etc. These probes do measurement under both public and private category and make that data available publicly for use by network engineers and helps in optimizing routing. This page shows detailed coverage statistics of the probes.
K root in Noida seems to be not getting enough traffic from quite sometime and connectivity does seems bit broken. This is a blog post following up to Dyn’s excellent and detailed post about how TIC leaked the world famous 126.96.36.199/24 address space used by AS25152. It was good to read this post from RIPE NCC written by my friend Emile (and thanks to him for crediting me to signal about traffic hitting outside!
