Routing Security Gets Boost with New Set of MANRS for IXPs

The Internet Society debuts a new mutually agreed norms initiative for IXPs.

A new initiative from the Internet Society seeks to extend Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) protections from ISPs to the Internet eXchange Points (IXPs) over which they exchange traffic. Wide adoption of the initiative would be a useful step toward avoiding a repetition of the MyEtherWallet incident earlier this week.

According to the Internet Society, participating IXPs must implement at least three of the five stated IXP Programme Actions:

  1. Facilitate prevention of propagation of incorrect routing information
  2. Promote MANRS in the IXP's membership
  3. Protect the peering platform
  4. Facilitate global operational communication and coordination between network operators
  5. Provide monitoring and debugging tools to members

Actions 1 and 2 are required of all participants, who can then choose from among the other actions for completion.

The IXP Programme begins its existence with 10 founding IXPs from Africa, Europe, Russia, North America, and South America. The founding IXPs have each fulfilled the requirements for participation in the program.

In a prepared statement issued with the announcement of the initiative, Christoph Dietzel, Head of Research & Development at DE-CIX (Germany) said, "We at DE-CIX are proud to support the MANRS IXP Programme as a founding participant with our knowledge and experience. It is time for IXPs to take responsibility to make the Internet a more secure and resilient place."
