Cyberwar is today’s reality. We’ve moved from a world of cyber-criminal threats to an interconnected arena where any malicious activity is feasible. Cyber-Kinetic attacks that destroy, kill, and massively disrupt civil society are part of our new security threat landscape reality. Geography will not help. The massively interconnected Internet means that you are a cyberwarrior’s

IP Anti-Spoofing Research Papers
We have a long library of IP Spoofing Research papers from universities worldwide. These papers are a rich & productive field of academic study exploring the risk, technique, tools, and deployment of IP anti-spoofing throughout the Internet. This page works to collect all papers in one place. Note: The materials are sorted alphabetically. This does
Practical Security Guides, Projects, & Workbooks
Do you feel overwhelmed by the barrage of security white papers, webinars, and guides? Are you parallized trying to figure out what you need to do first to get ready for the next attack? We don’t need more security guides, we need a consolidated landing that pulls in all the advice into one place. We
IPv4/IPv6 Anti-Spoofing – Source Address Validation (SAV) – Techniques & Tools
IPv4/IPv6 Anti-Spoofing through Source Address Validation (SAV) is one of the most promoted security best practices. We have achieved a wide range of SAV deployment, but we also run into the tedious 20% of the Internet that takes more human-intensive SAV deployment work. This guide is provided to help operators, engineers, policymakers, and executive decision-makers

DDoS Resiliency Workshop – 2022
Revised, Updated, and Enhance DDoS Resiliency Workshops for Today’s Internet In the late 1990s, several people started teaching ISPs how to protect their networks from attack. These early “DDoS Resiliency Workshops” evolved in a consistent theme and method that eventually curated best common practices for DDoS resiliency. Unfortunately, the threats from attacks to Communications Services
Why is an “APRICOT” critical to Asia/Pacific Internet Operations?
There is one conference where Asia & Pacific Critical people resources meet to maintain the operational relationships critical to the success of the Internet. Are you going to Asia Pacific Regional Internet Conference on Operational Technologies (APRICOT)? People glue together the Internet and Telecom. People who meet, collaborate, and work with each other to keep Read More
BGP Security Workshop – Safeguarding the Internet’s Glue
BGP and DNS are the two critical protocols that glue the entire global network (the Internet). Without them, the Internet falls apart. The security, resiliency, and integrity Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) holds up the routing of packets end-to-end across the Internet. Threats to BGP systems are life-threatening, disrupting critical infrastructure people depend on for their
Meaningful Security Conversations with your Vendors: Can vendors ever provide secure solutions?
It is critical to have meaningful security conversations with your vendors. Operators depend on their vendors to supply products and solutions that are secure. As all operators have experienced, “secure products” is almost always a vendor afterthought. This leads to an operational risk that in some cases turns deadly. In this session, we will explore
Protecting your Domain Names: Taking the First Steps
Protecting your domain names is often overlooked, ignored, and neglected. Everyone and everything on the Internet depends on the Domain Name System (DNS) being functional. The DNS has been a common vector for attacks in recent years. Attacking DNS will continue in the future. The 2019 DNSpionage Campaign and Sea Turtle attacks were wake calls
