Operator’s Security Toolkit

It is time for a refresh of the SP Security materials used by many over the years. Back in 2002, several people in the emerging “Service Provider Security” field pulled together a list of top practices every Operator should deploy. These “NSP-SEC Top 10” techniques became the foundation of our toolkit that is used daily in all parts of the Internet. Years later, these materials require a refresh and a new tour of training to empower new generations of peers and ensure that as many ASNs as possible have these tools deployed. 

Workshop Presentations

The following workshop presentations are the latest modules. These are updated and maintained. 

The Operators Security  Toolkit will grow organically with each module developing to meet the needs of the operator community.  There will be a special focus on deployment of the tools needed to allow security practitioners who work on the investigations to productively interact with network operations teams. 

Workshop Papers and Reading List

These documents are part of the recommended reading list. These documents help Security conscious Operators gain the knowledge to help them deploy a more resilient and secure network.
