How can we work together to improve the security and resilience of the global routing system?

Throughout the history of the Internet, collaboration among participants and shared responsibility for its smooth operation have been two of the pillars supporting the Internet’s tremendous growth and success, as well as its security and resilience. Technology solutions are an essential element here, but technology alone is not sufficient. To stimulate visible improvements in this area, a greater change toward a culture of collective responsibility is needed.

The Routing Resilience Manifesto initiative, underpinned by the “Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS)” document that includes a set of actionable recommendations, aims at supporting this goal.

Many operators are ahead of the curve and already implement much more than the proposed recommendations. But we believe that gathering support for these relatively small steps could pave the road to more significant actions on a global scale.

Several initial participants have already publicly committed to the Routing Resilience Manifesto initiative and implemented the measures defined in the MANRS document. You can sign up today to show your support, too, and download the MANRS badge to tell everyone you’re participating!
