Full Abstract

Effective modern site security is behavioral in nature. We cannot choose or exclude our endpoints nor validate their supply chains, and so to the extent that we manage digital risks posed by our endpoints we do it by watching the signals (packets and flows) they emit. Such observations are categorically untenable for investigative journalists and dissidents since the category is occupied by corrupt or authoritarian regimes or their national security apparatus -- as explained by E. Snowden in 2013 and as codified by the IETF in RFC 7258.

Using the same protocols for mobile devices which accounted for most human-centric endpoint growth since 2010 as we do for fixed devices on networks controlled by families and businesses is disrupting our limited ability to secure the latter in order to defend against worst-case outcomes for the former. Several decades of unapologetic abuse by the powerful have led the IETF to reform the basic Internet protocol suite around TLS 1.3 with Encrypted Client Hello, DNS over HTTPS, and the replacement of TCP by the UDP-based QUIC protocol.

In this new configuration, network operators will not be able to detect endpoint behavior changes corresponding to infection, takeover, poisoned software update, latent design dangers, predaceous grooming, insider corruption, or hundreds of other well-understood digital harms. Many such operators have not been warned about this "rules change" and deserve to have their expectations explicitly and immediately reset so that they can make new plans which will be practical in the next era. It is the goal of this presentation to enumerate those alarms.

Full Abstract

In 1970 two technology pathways finally came together. The semiconductor laser and low attenuation optical fiber; technologies based on very different materials and unrelated branches of physics. Over 70 years of historical innovation in each of these areas finally converged at a point where the commercial application for high speed communications over long distances was now possible for emerging computer platforms.
In this tutorial, Geoff Bennett will explain the timeline of innovation for optical fiber - the quest to create a communication pathway that is thinner than a human hair, yet has a potential capacity that a 1970s engineer would often summarize as "practically infinite".
He will then turn his attention to the development of a totally new light source to fill the new medium - the semiconductor laser.
The story is littered with a Who's Who of science and technology, not to mention an armful of Nobel Prizes.
But the real story begins when these two technologies come together, and are joined by amplification breakthroughs like the EDFA, and the revolution of coherent transmission and processing.

Proposed session/track on routing and traffic security with talks from MANRS and several Cloud/CDN providers

Session title: Internet Routing and Traffic Security – A view from Cloud and CDN Providers
Session length: 80-90min (4x20-25)
Speakers (order TBD):
Andrei Robachevsky (MANRS)
Anees Shaikh (Google)
Fredrik Korsback (AWS)
Somesh Chaturmohta (Microsoft)

Session abstract

Routing and traffic security is one of the top challenges faced by the Internet today. A reliable and secure Internet is essential for society, but the trust model on which connectivity is based has eroded through BGP hijacks, routing misconfigurations, and DDoS attacks. While the Internet community has pursued several practical mechanisms to protect the Internet from these vulnerabilities, it is clear that the pace of adoption and deployment needs to increase further. Cloud and CDN providers are subject to these same issues, and also have some unique challenges that have led to collaborations in forums such as MANRS to introduce additional best practices. This session includes perspectives from several cloud and content providers to share their progress and experience implementing routing and traffic security to protect the Internet, and highlight how they are working with the wider Internet community toward the same goal.

Amazon –

Title: How AWS is helping to secure internet routing (Tentative)

Speaker: Fredrik Korsbäck

Bio: Fredrik Korsbäck is a Senior Infrastructure Business Developer in the AWS Networking team, primarily taking care of the peering network in Europe. Fredrik is passionate about routing security and has been part of the Internet routing security community for a long time, enrolling three ISPs over the years into the MANRS programme.

Summary/Abstract: To help put an end to BGP hijacking, AWS has been working closely with other industry leaders to make an industry-wide standard practice the use of Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) to digitally sign route announcements. This is not a simple process, and it has taken lots of time, effort, and cooperation. We are happy to have over 99% of our IPv4 and IPv6 -Space covered under a Route Origination Authorization for two years, and that we are right now dropping RPKI invalid routes in every single Point-of-Presence for AS16509. In this talk we will look at how we did it and what we believe the future holds.

Microsoft

Title: Building reliable RPKI infrastructure for large scale networks and Protect network against DDoS. (Tentative)

Speaker: Somesh Chaturmohta

Bio: Somesh Chaturmohta is a Principal Software Engineering Manager in the Microsoft Global Networking team, responsible for managing the Microsoft Edge Network. He has been leading the Microsoft Edge Network team for more than 3 years and is currently working on the software-defined Edge. Prior to this, Somesh was leading the Azure Accelerated Networking program, where he built a software-defined networking stack for FPGA-based NICs. Somesh has more than 15 years of experience building various software-defined network controllers for cloud-scale networks.

Summary / abstract
Microsoft operates one of the largest global networks in the world, connecting over 190 Microsoft Edge (PoP) locations and 61+ Azure regions. Protecting the Internet on this large scale network comes with unique challenges. In this talk, we talk about how at Microsoft we have deployed a reliable RPKI infrastructure and steps we are taking to protect the network against DDoS.

Google -

Title: (tentative) A multi-pronged approach for securing Internet routing

Speaker: Anees Shaikh

Bio:
Anees Shaikh is a Principal Software Engineer with the Global Networking team at Google where he works on software systems that support traffic control, routing security, network management, and cloud networking. He is also active in a number of open source and industry efforts, including OpenConfig and MANRS. Prior to Google, Anees was the Chief SDN Architect at IBM where he was responsible for IBM's software-defined networking product architecture and technical strategy.

Summary/abstract:
Protecting networks and users from Internet routing disruptions cannot be achieved with a single “silver bullet” solution – the threats are varied, and require development and deployment of multiple technical capabilities. Google has deployed a combination of mechanisms, including route filtering systems, public registrations to enable correctness checks by other networks, and monitoring systems that provide early detection when routes are hijacked. We have also emphasized collaboration with the wider Internet operator community to improve data hygiene to enable all networks to deploy practical security mechanisms.

Internet Society -

Title: Eight years of good MANRS

Speaker: Andrei Robachevsky

Bio: Andrei is a Senior Director for Technology Programs at the Internet Society. He is a long standing member of the RIR and the IETF communities. His primary area of interest is security and resilience of the Internet infrastructure, bridging technology and policy. This work is based on active engagement with the operator, research, and policy communities. Andrei was instrumental in creating an industry-led initiative called Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) and the development of its programs

Summary/Abstract: The talk will discuss a broader question of challenges and opportunities of solving security problems of a decentralized and globally distributed system, such as Internet routing. MANRS, launched in 2014 by 9 network operators, has grown to more than 800 participants, covering 4 programs focused on network operators, IXPs, CDN& Cloud providers and network equipment vendors. What is the most effective way participants from these groups can contribute to better routing security? What are the incentives, material and immaterial, for doing so? The presentation will discuss the efficacy of the approach and its sustainability, as well as the efforts to improve both. In particular, it will talk about developing another tier - MANRS+ aimed at providing higher security assurance, especially in business-to-business relationships.

Anees Shaikh: Anees Shaikh is with the Global Networking team at Google where he works on software systems to support network management, cloud networking, and routing security in Google’s production networks. Prior to joining Google, he was the Chief SDN Architect at IBM where he was responsible for IBM's software-defined networking product architecture and technical strategy, including leading IBM’s open source networking engagements.

Full Abstract

Russia's invasion of Ukraine occurred just after NANOG 84. In addition to the tragic loss of life and destruction the subsequent fighting has wrought, the conflict has had measurable impacts on the Internet.

DDoS attacks targeting Ukraine were followed by retaliatory attacks against Russian networks. Outages in Ukraine have resulted from the fighting as well as from "cyberattacks". Ukraine asked ICANN and RIPE to disconnect Russia while Russia moved to block Internet access to independent media which led to a BGP hijack of Twitter.

Despite all of this, the Ukrainian Internet has proved to be resilient due in large part to the courageous efforts of the country's telecom technicians. This talk summarizes the Internet impacts from the recent war in Ukraine.

Doug Madory: Doug Madory is the Director of Internet Analysis for Kentik where he works on Internet infrastructure analysis. The Washington Post dubbed him “The Man who can see the Internet" for his reputation in identifying significant developments in the structure of the Internet. Doug is regularly quoted by major news outlets about developments ranging from national blackouts to BGP hijacks to the activation of submarine cables. Prior to Kentik, he was the lead analyst for Oracle's Internet Intelligence team (formerly Dyn Research and Renesys).

Native American Nations: The pandemic was a catalyst for the need for connectivity, but are we connected yet?

As we all know, the pandemic was the biggest marketing campaign for getting connected to broadband. Trapped in your home with quarantine restrictions and the need to communicate and participate in jobs, education, and life in general.
Now think about being sent home from your job to "telecommute" and there is no broadband, you don't even have a provider to call to get connected. You have now been furloughed, due to the lack of Internet. Your children have been sent home from school with a laptop computer and told to participate in their schooling online and attend classes with video conferencing. Effectively, your kids have just missed a year+ of school...
The Federal Government made some steps to actively address these issues with funding... Has it helped?
Some States have made significant efforts to build new infrastructure, and some have included their Tribes as a priority.
California has focused nearly $4Billion on advancing the middle-mile Infrastructure of the State (GoldenStateNet.org), the Tribes are, for the most part, included.
Many other efforts have taken place to address the lack of connectivity in Indian Country, many of them are driven from within the Tribes.
The Tribal Broadband Bootcamps (tribalbroadbandbootcamp.com) were spawned, due to the demand for training during the pandemic, addressing specific network building training needs and sponsoring participants to attend.
The Tribal Resource Center (tribalresourcecenter.net) was conceived and is growing into a resource aggregator for developing Tribal Broadband.
Arcadian Infracom is funded with a partnership with TIAA, and is moving towards completing solutions that will support many Tribes with the routes in development.

The NOG landscape in the RIPE community is varied, some are highly active communities which meet regularly, some are simply telegram groups. What is important to some, may not be to others. This means trying to understand each NOG can be a difficult task.Working in collaboration with NOG organisers throughout the RIPE NCC service region and beyond, the RIPE NCC created a survey which has been sent to all NOG participants.
The purpose of this survey is to get a better understanding of what NOG participants want, what prevents them from participating (both at events and on communication channels), what content they would like to see, what NOGs can do to continue to attract new people and more.

This information is important to RIPE NCC as the NOG communities often comprise of the core people involved in maintaining an open, inclusive, collaborative Internet model in each country or region. If we have a better understanding of these NOGs on a more granular level, we can better tailor our services, training, and outreach in these regions.My presentation will highlight the results of this survey. I will be able to give not just an overview of the NOGs in our region, but also highlight interesting points with regards to specific regions and countries. This presentation will also allow me to give a clear update on what is currently the most important topics throughout our service region.

Alastair Strachan: Alastair Strachan is the Community Development Officer at the RIPE NCC. In this role, he works to strengthen the RIPE NCC's engagement with the RIPE NCC membership, the RIPE community, government, law enforcement and other Internet stakeholders. Alastair coordinates the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund which gives funding to non-commercial projects that benefit the RIPE community.

There's a lot of momentum about diversity and inclusion, but the conversation is incomplete without a discussion about access. Especially in the high tech B2B, inclusion does not ensure equality. As leaders, we need to recruit, retain, and nurture a talent pool that offers the cognitive diversity required for innovation in an increasingly digital business world.

For those who did not inherit access, you can curate your own network to shape your destiny as you navigate the career lattice. For those in power, attract the tenacity of a talent pool that possesses an innate entrepreneurial spirit.

After a career of navigating in the dark, Sales Executive of a Fortune 500 company and Wall Street Journal Bestseller, Hang Black, is passionate about empowering women who have been unseen, and minorities who have been unheard to reach their potential. This program will invite attendees to embark on a journey of discovery and transformation with a framework called the 3 R's.

* Reflect. Get oriented. How do you measure success? What are you proud of and where are you stuck?
* Recalibrate. How is your direction aligned to your current reality versus outdated expectations?
* Reset. It is uncomfortable. This is the difference between talking or acting, between dreaming or doing.

Be clear on whether an invitation to the room is to serve, to sit, or to speak. Now is the time to stand for each other.

Since the early days of the Internet, capacity has been the prime metric to quantify the quality of the Internet access. While capacity was the primary challenge back in those days, we have successfully reached a point where the vast majority of users can easily access sufficient capacity for the majority of the use-cases. But still, Internet experience is often lacking the smoothness that we would expect. Video-conferencing still has frequent issues, video gaming is rarely a smooth experience and web-browsing still suffers from bad page-load times.

We present a new metric, called "Responsiveness under working conditions", which significantly broadens the scope far beyond traditional capacity and latency measurements. This metric aims at quantifying the network's ability to provide low latency while at the same time providing high capacity. The measurement methodology not only measures the network, but also the end-host networking stack. We will describe how measuring responsiveness will allow to detect deep buffers in the server's networking stack and how it affects the end-user experience. Further, we describe steps that can be taken to reduce those buffers. We will conclude this talk by providing resources and open-source tools to allow everyone to reproduce the same measurement on their infrastructure and tune their networking stack for the benefit of their end-users.

Christoph Paasch: Christoph Paasch has been working on transport layer networking since 2010. Focusing on extensions to TCP, like Multipath TCP or TCP Fast Open. From specification (in the case of MPTCP) and research to the implementation and large scale deployments at Apple. Lately he has shifted his focus on improving the network properties that really matter to the end-user experience by exposing measurement tools to raise awareness to these issues. "Responsiveness under working conditions" being now the first primary target.

As containerised versions of network devices become more available, it becomes easier to use these implementations for development purposes. Particularly, for network testing, validation and feature prototyping. KNE (Kubernetes Network Emulation) defines and standard interface to provision topologies of these containers, and provide data-plane connectivity between them, and control-plane connectivity to them through standard Kubernetes tooling. KNE is a collaboration between network operators, device vendors, and test equipment manufacturers to build a common ecosystem to allow multi-vendor emulation through a common framework.

This talk introduces KNE, provides insight into the motivation behind the project, how it works, and the ecosystem and use cases that are building with it.

This talk will describe how Meta end to end automates a carrier notified maintenance, right from the point of parsing the notification to the point of taking traffic away from the impacted circuits gracefully before the maintenance and putting traffic back after the maintenance is complete.

Network engineering teams across multiple industries are embracing Continuous Integration (CI) to deliver network projects with quality, keep service availability high and maintain confidence while rolling out changes to network infrastructure. Open Traffic Generator API defines a standard, model-driven and vendor-neutral interface for emulating layer 2-7 network devices and generating test traffic. It is gaining traction as part of a CI toolkit among open-source as well as commercial projects:
- OpenConfig Feature Profiles
- SONiC and SAI
- SONiC-DASH – Disaggregated API for SONiC Hosts

In this presentation, we would like to introduce the Open Traffic Generator API (https://github.com/open-traffic-generator) to the network operator community and demonstrate how it can be used in combination with popular network CI and emulation frameworks: GitHub Actions, Containerlab, KNE.

Full Abstract

The IEEE 802.1 Working Group continues its pursuit of standards related to congestion management within Data Center Networks. Many of the initiatives are spun from the IEEE 802 “Network Enhancements for the Next Decade” Industry Connections Activity (Nendica) which recently published a report on “Intelligent Lossless Data Center Networks” ISBN: 978-1-5044-7741-3. The focus is on enabling low-latency, low-loss, high-reliability Ethernet-based Data Center Networks supporting RDMA and AI/HPC workloads. These environments are increasingly common within and traversing interconnected Cloud and Edge Data Centers. This presentation intends to provide the most up to date look at these proposed and active projects as well as other forward looking solutions that may be candidates for future standardization.

Full Abstract

The International Telecommunication Union’s Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) received a proposal two years ago to begin work on designing a “new information and communications network with new protocol system” to meet the needs of a future network – the “New IP, Shaping Future Network” proposal. The proposal’s proponents made various claims about the issues that the current network faces as a basis for developing a new design. Many of the raised points have been widely researched in the technical and standards communities for decades and for which solutions already exist. Others deal with areas that are already the subject of current standardization or study. In addition, some of these ideas were reflected in earlier work of the ITU-T Study Group (SG13) Focus Group on Future Networks 2030.

In December 2020, New IP was not approved as new work items for the next study period of ITU-T. Since December, however, elements of the New IP proposal were presented at the March and September 2021 meetings of ITU-T SG13 which is why it is relevant to continue to discuss the proposal. Also, some proposals for resolutions submitted to the World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly which took place in March 1-9, 2022, included elements of the NewIP proposal.

Full Abstract

Bandwidth management in a network is critical for efficient network utilization. Automatic bandwidth allocation using the classical maximum-average bandwidth method is limited in its capability in part due to its reactive nature and requiring many interdependent configurations to make it effective. We present a light weight, modular ML Driven Bandwidth Forecasting Framework that can proactively forecast bandwidth values based on historical patterns in the data. Our approach includes an ensemble of time series forecasting methods along with the traditional max-average approach. Additionally, we highlight several applications based on our framework that can enhance network performance.
