Speaker bio

I am working at Hurricane Electric and we operate one of largest interconnected network in the world.
We operate a backbone network in 41 countries across America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Africa region and interconnect with over 7400 networks via 26000 + BGP sessions in over 200 Internet Exchanges. A large part of this talk comes from our experiences of implementing IRR based BGP filtering in last few months.
