The impact of an RPKI validator in Bangladesh and Lessons Learned

There have been a lot of discussion and awareness campaign on global routing infrastructure security around the world. Organisations like ISOC, APNIC, RIPE NCC, NSRC and many others have put extensive efforts on RPKI ROA and route origin validation.

This presentation is intended to analyze routing issues observed in Bangladesh and in the South Asian Region. Also, there will be discussion on the recent deployment of RPKI validator at the Government’s National Data Center in Bangladesh which has a very positive impact in the National routing infrastructure. This presentation will discuss some lesson learned from that.

It would encourage network operators to go for RPKI ROV deployment.
