ISP Security
Meeting: NANOG39

Room: Sheraton Hall E
Presenters: Speakers:
Danny McPherson, Arbor Networks.
Abstract: Security incidents are a daily event for Internet Service Providers. Attacks on an ISP\'s customers, attacks from an ISP\'s customer, worms, BOTNETs, and attacks on the ISP\'s infrastructure are now one of many \"security\" NOC tickets throughout the day. This increase in the volume and intensity of attacks has forced ISP\'s to spend constrained resources to mitigate the effects of these attacks on their operations and services. This investment has helped minimize the effects of the attacks, but it has not helped stop them at the source. Stopping attacks at their source requires rapid and effective inter-ISP cooperation. Hence, these ISP Security BOFs are also used as a face-to-face sync up meeting for the NSP-SEC forum (see https://puck.nether.net/mailman/listinfo/nsp-security)

Defined topics to be discussed during this ISP Security BOF include:

The root of a log: Extracting Intelligence from the Woods

Botnet C&C: Extirpate or Infiltrate?

Defending the NANOG Network: How the local net is geared for security (Randy B. moderator)

Open Microphone
