APNIC will deliver two workshops at PACNOG 24 in Apia, Samoa, from 25 to 28 June.

BGP, peering and routing security workshop

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is one of the key routing protocols that run the Internet.

This four-day workshop is aimed at technical staff who are operating a service provider network with international and/or multi-provider connectivity, or considering participating at an Internet Exchange Point (IXP).

Using our hands-on labs, participants will learn BGP operations and security best practices around route filtering techniques (including route origin validation) required for securing the Internet routing system.


The DNS is a critical part of the Internet’s infrastructure, and securing it is vital to its operations.

In this four-day workshop, we will discuss the concept of DNS security in detail, as well as mechanisms to:

  • Authenticate the communication between DNS servers
  • Establish authenticity and integrity of DNS data
  • Delegate trust to public keys of third parties
