Around 100 attendees gathered across the two days to hear about VNNIC activities and Internet infrastructure trends in Viet Nam, including Software Defined Secure Network solutions to prevent malware/ransomware attacks, using VNIX to defend against DDoS attacks and VNPT’s IPv6 deployment experiences.
- During the VNNIC IP member meeting, Tom Harrison gave a presentation on IPv6 trends and measurements as well as IPv4 transfers.
- At VNIX-NOG, Tom presented on APNIC’s whowas service, which provides an Application Programming Interface (API) allowing queries for historical registration data, extending the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) to support this purpose.
