NANOG Meeting Presentation Abstract

Implications of Securing Backbone Router Infrastructure
Meeting: NANOG31
Date / Time: 2004-05-24 10:15am - 10:35am
Room: Grand Ballroom
Presenters: Speakers:

Ryan McDowell, Sprint

Ryan has a BS in Computer Science and an MS in Information Systems. He has worked for Sprint for the past five years in various engineering and operations roles.
Abstract: This talk discusses several currently deployable methods designed to improve the security of a service provider\'s router infrastructure, and outlines their operational implications. Many of these methods have been implemented on the Sprint IP network, which will be used as a case study.

For example, one such method that Sprint has implemented is to remove the more specific routes to the /30 networks between Sprint and its customers. Sprint also plans to remove the more specific routes to its intra-router /31 networks as well. This talk will discuss the motivation behind these changes, how they were made, and most importantly, their operational impact.
