Peter Ashwood-Smith (peter.ashwoodsmith@huawei.com) is a Huawei Fellow with B.S and M.S. degrees in computer science from the Universities of Victoria and Toronto. He has worked on the design, standardization, implementation, deployment, and support of many modern routing protocols (e.g., label switched networks including PORS, ATM, MPLS, and GMPLS). Peter previously worked at Nortel where he held a number of product related positions and a fellowship. He currently has approximately 32 networking related patents.<BR> His interests and research are now tending in the direction of computation-based/non-label-switched protocols and as a result Peter is now participating in the design, standardization, implementation and productization of IEEE 802.1aq/Shortest Path Bridging.
Abstract: IEEE 802.1aq Shortest Path Bridging (presented at Nanog 49) is a new layer 2 control protocol using IS-IS to replace and greatly enchance the capabilities of the layer 2 data paths Q-in-Q and Mac-in-Mac. The shortest and multi path virtualized routing have applications in the Data Center , Metro, and Enterprise we will give an overview of 802.1aq, then drop into a deeper dive into how it works, looking at some of the algorithms in some detail, and will finish with a look at some live CLI on a 30+ node network. An emulator will also be available and time permitting we can experiment with different networks to see the behaviors.

Room: Mercer, Salon G/H
Presenters: Speakers:

Donald Eastlake, Stellar Switches

Donald Eastlake is co-chair of the IETF TRILL Working Group and a member of the IEEE 802.1 Working Group. Donald is author of about 50 IETF RFCs, including the only RFC with "sex" in its title. He was also the editor of the TRILL base protocol specification, and an author of a number of other TRILL related Internet Drafts. Previous, he was a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at Motorola.
Abstract: RBridges, based on the IETF TRILL protocol, provide safe optimal pair-wise forwarding without configuration and support for multipathing of both unicast and multicast traffic. They achieve this with IS-IS routing and encapsulation of traffic with a header that includes a hop count. RBridges are compatible with previous IEEE 802.1 customer bridges, as well as IPv4 and IPv6 routers and end nodes, and such bridges can be incrementally replaced by RBridges. Current work on minimizing broadcast traffic, including ARP/ND optimization, will also be covered.

Saleem Bhatti, University of St Andrews

Saleem Bhatti is a Professor at the School of Computer Science, University of St Andrews, Scotland, UK. His research interests include novel network architectures, mobile and heterogenous networked systems and network security. He is also involved with industry in various consultancy roles in the area of networking technology and systems. He prefers his beer flat, dark, and served at room temperature in a straight glass.
Abstract: Growing concerns about the use of the current Internet protocol have caused many to consider how it should be changed in order to address problems such as DFZ RIB growth, implementation of certain functionality (such as multi-homing and mobility), as well as dealing with issues of scalability. We take the position that an evolutionary approach is possible for a practical and scaleable solution, giving much of the functionality required, being backwards compatible with the currently deployed architecture, with incremental deployment capability, and which can reduce the current routing state overhead for the core network. By enhancing the way we use naming in the Internet Architecture, it is possible to provide a harmonised approach to the provision of much functionality (such as multi-homing, mobility and others), including specific improvement to the scalability of inter-domain routing state.

Tom Scholl, nLayer

Tom Scholl currently is a Principal Network Engineer at nLayer Communications. He has worked in network engineering roles for the past 14 years and has been an active contributor to the NANOG program with several presentations. He previously was at SBC, which later acquired AT&T and was a key participant on network integrations with Cingular and SBC. While at AT&T, he was main contributor to their architecture of MPLS-TE, BGP and various other network architecture functions. Tom has worked in both engineering and operations roles and understand the needs of each individual group. Tom continues to try to distribute clue and help others when it comes to designing and operating networks.
Abstract: This presentation aims to bring the low-cost economic 1U/2U top-of-rack device beyond just the datacenter. I intend to outline how you can take some of the low-cost commodity top-of-rack router/switches and transform it into a viable BGP Internet peering router, providing you a dense Nx10GE peering router at an order of magnitude cheaper than the big metal boxes on the market. Through a variety of tricks with MPLS and BGP, an operator can still have roughly the same functionality they have today with a few additional enhancements.

An Inconvenient Prefix: Is Routing Table Pollution Causing DataCenter Warming?

Room: Ellington
Presenters: Speakers:
Richard Steenbergen, nLayer Communication.
Abstract: We all see the size of the global routing table constantly growing, but what is really behind the number of prefixes being announced? A knee jerk answer is "more people on the internet", or "intentional deaggregation for policy reasons", but does this really explain it? How much of the routing table size is caused by unintentional configurations, or slow growth allocations? Can we do a better job of identifying these route sources by looking at common BGP attributes rather than simple route aggregation techniques (which often miss "holes" in otherwise aggregatable large blocks)? And is IPv6 really helping to improve this issue and reduce routing table size, or are people just making the same mistakes all over again.

Abstract: The Research Forum will include: <UL> <LI><B>Wide-Area Route Control for Distributed Services</B> <BR><BR> <I>by Vyatautas Valancius, Georgia Tech</i> <BR><BR> Many distributed services would benefit from control over the flow of traffic to and from their users, to offer better performance and higher reliability at a reasonable cost. Unfortunately, although today's cloud-computing platforms offer elastic computing and bandwidth resources, they do not give services control over wide-area routing. We propose replacing the data center's border router with a Transit Portal (TP) that gives each service the illusion of direct connectivity to upstream ISPs, without requiring each service to deploy hardware, acquire IP address space, or negotiate contracts with ISPs. <BR><BR></LI> <LI><B>Understanding Slow BGP Routing Table Transfers </B> <BR><BR> <I>by Zied Ben Houidi, France Telecom R&D Orange Labs</I> <BR><BR> Researchers and network operators often say that BGP table transfers are slow. Despite this common knowledge, the reasons for slow BGP transfers are not well understood. This work explains BGP table transfer delays by combining BGP messages collected at a large VPN provider backbone and controlled experiments with routers of three different vendors as well as a software BGP speaker. <BR><BR></LI> <LI><B>Autonomous Traffic Engineering with Self-Configuring Link Weights</B> <BR><BR> <I>by Srikanth Sundaresan, Georgia Tech</I> <BR><BR> Network operators use traffic engineering to control the flow of traffic across their networks. Existing TE methods establish static topologies offline, either by setting link weights or by configuring paths a priori. These methods require manual configuration and may not be robust in the face of failures. Some methods also require knowledge about traffic demands and may not be able to handle traffic fluctuations. Even when changes in demand are expected, operators must manually tune network configurations to prepare for them.Because adjusting configurations is difficult to get right, we start from an extreme design point, asking instead whether it is possible to perform traffic engineering online without having to perform any a priori configuration. Our traffic engineering technique, SculpTE, adapts to changing traffic demands by automatically configuring link weights in a stable manner. SculpTE balances load across the network by continually adjusting link weights to expose lightly-loaded paths. We evaluate SculpTE using simulations on realistic ISP network topologies. Our results show that SculpTE achieves excellent load balancing, responsiveness, and stability compared to state-of-the-art TE schemes, without requiring network operators to perform any offline configuration. <BR><BR></LI> </UL>

Abstract: In this talk, we present detailed, quantitative data on 5,000 operator confirmed (via manual classification) network infrastructure attacks over the last year across 37 carriers. We explore the magnitude, frequency and characterize both the attack vectors and victims. Previously, most data on carrier security trends has come from qualitative vendor surveys (e.g. Cisco, Arbor, etc). We believe this talk represents the first large scale study of validated (i.e. "ground-truth") botnet and DDoS attacks. We conclude with estimates of botnet size and efficacy.

Abstract: The East African region acquired undersea capacity in mid 2009. Previously, connectivity was via E1 copper lines or in some cases fiber, but to slow VSAT connections. By the end of 2010, three undersea cables will be active. In the research and education area, users made the big leap from shared VSAT to undersea capacity as well. My presentation will show what impact this had and what has needed to be done to adjust to the new bandwidth prices. I will also describe the problems encountered and solutions deployed to counter problems related to the new Internet speeds achieved with undersea capacity.

Mehmet Akcin, ICANN.
Abstract: The Day the Root Got Signed<BR> On July 15 at approximately 20:50 UTC, the first signed and validatable root zone file was pushed out to the Internet's root nameserver system. In this presentation I'll talk about (1) VeriSign's infrastructure for generating ZSKs and signing zone files; (2) the steps in transitioning from a DURZ to a validatable root zone; (3) some photos taken at VeriSign on this day; and (4) a graph showing the spike in DNSKEY queries while DNS geeks eagerly awaited the new zone. <BR><BR> Now that the Root is Signed ... <br> DNSSEC Deployment has always been described a chicken and egg problem. At the publication end, the zone operators have been waiting for an incentive to sign their zones while at the user end, general-purpose DNSSEC validation was seen as inconsequential given the paucity of signed zones. The recent months have noted a marked upswing in the number of signed zones in the Internet. The Root zone is now signed and deployed in production, major TLDs have announced their plans for signing their zones, if they haven't signed already, and the number signed ccTLDs continues to grow. The time is now ripe to start extending the benefits of validation to the end user. This talk will focus on some of the benefits that can be gained from making applications DNSSEC-capable and some of the DNSSEC-capable applications that are available today.

Pat has also interned at Microsoft and Qualcomm and worked on various projects related with<BR> the Linux as well as Windows kernel.
Abstract: The pS Performance Toolkit<BR> Debugging network performance end to end can be an intractable problem: availability of tools, knowing where to find them, permissions to use them, and lack of a clear method to view and exchange historical information can thwart attempts to solve problems that span multiple domains. <BR><BR> IRR Additional Route Attributes<BR> The IRR system has traditionally been used by network operators to declare routing policy for their own networks. We propose two additional attributes geoidx and roa-uri which can be added to a route object definition. The geoidx attribute can be used to define a geographic region which that particular prefix is associated with while the roa-uri can be used to reference a roa for that prefix. We have implemented both these new attributes in IRRD as well as example tools that demonstrate how these can be used by various applications.

ARIN Open Policy Hour
Meeting: NANOG50
Date / Time: 2010-10-05 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Room: Ellington
Presenters: Moderators:
Einar Bohlin, ARIN.
Abstract: The Open Policy Hour (OPH) is an informal gathering where folks can talk Internet number resource policy. Would you like to “test drive” a policy idea? Everyone is invited to attend this session and raise ideas and suggestions. You do not need to have a formal presentation in order to participate. Signing up in advance allows us to confirm your turn to present, but is not required. <BR> <BR> Part One - Draft Policy Background Briefing: ARIN staff provides a quick overview of the draft policies that will be discussed during the upcoming Public Policy Meeting. The intent here is to increase understanding, not to discuss the pros or cons of the draft policies. <BR> <BR> Part Two - Policy Proposal BoF: This is your opportunity to try out a policy idea and get informal feedback. You’ll be given a few minutes to present your idea, as well as a few minutes for questions and answers. You get to say something, and you get feedback. There are no commitments. To sign up to talk, please send an e-mail to policy at arin.net with a brief description of what you want to talk about.
