As part of my master thesis, we are looking into the topic of security
misconfigurations. We want to better understand why they occur and how
the operations community perceives them.
If you're hooked already, please participate in our research by filling
out our anonymous survey on your experiences. Every input on that topic
is valuable and it only takes about 10 to 20 minutes, depending on
whether you're up for more detailed answers or not:
For further detail on the study read the article on RIPE Labs:
On the Operators' Perspective on Security Misconfigurations ㄧ The Survey
Thanks in advance and have a nice day! :)
AMS-IX, DE-CIX, LINX, Netnod are happy to host the 12th European
Peering Forum (EPF) in Lisbon, Portugal from the 18th - 20st September
2017. The event will welcome up to 300 peering managers and
coordinators from networks connected to the host Internet exchanges.
Besides an interesting topical agenda, the three-day event
accommodates room for attendees to meet on a one-to-one basis to
discuss bilateral peering business opportunities.
The programme committee will be looking for presentations and
lightning talks related to peering and technical topics of
interconnection. Your presentation should address
* Interconnection Automation
* Regional Peering
* Interconnection and Peering Internet Governance and Regulatory TopicS
* Economic and Product Trends
* Peering/Interconnection Strategy
* Interesting findings about peering
* 100GE and beyond
Presentations must be of a non-commercial nature. Product or
marketing heavy talks are strongly discouraged.
Submissions of presentations should be made to the programme
committee <epf-pc(a)peering-forum.eu>. Please include:
* Author's name and e-mail
* Presentation title
* Slides (if available)
* Time requested
Presentation Abstract Deadline 17/07/2017 12:00 UTC
Final Selection of Speakers 28/07/2017
Presentation Slides Submission Deadline 04/09/2017 12:00 UTC

I'm hoping to find free give-away networking gear to run 100-300 People
"hacker camps", like ZeTeCo in two weeks in Schaffhausen. Maybe your
companies have equipment which has fallen short of vendor support to
give away to the poor hacker community?
Switches with 24 Ports Gigabit, and 2 to 4 GBIC/X2/SFP/SFP+ uplinks
would be ideal. We have some Cisco 3560G/3560E series already, which are
great feature-wise, and some PoE cabaple switches, but we need like
10-15 more of each to cover the large camp area.
Surplus 802af power injectors, and fibers (SM and MM), especially long
ones (25m, 50m, 100m), couplers and lasers/modules are also welcome.
Whatever we would receive will be used and pooled in the Chaos Computer
Club community and "affiliates".
Please contact me PM for questions and offers.
Thank you very much!

Betreff: RFC 8195 "Use of Large Communities"
Datum: Sat, 1 Jul 2017 17:02:26 +0200
Von: Job Snijders <job(a)ntt.net>
RFC 8195 "Use of BGP Large Communities" was just now published:
RFC 8195 presents examples and inspiration for the operational
application of Large Communities. The document suggests logical
categories of Large Communities and demonstrates an orderly manner of
organizing community values within those categories to achieve typical
goals in routing policy. Any network or route server operator can
consider using the concepts presented as the basis for their own Large
RFC 8195 is meant as a companion document in the same way that RFC 1998
provided a concrete real-world application for RFC1997 BGP Communities.
The RFC draws on the experience of operator communities such as NANOG
A ton of open source implementations  with Large support are already
available. And with more traditional vendors like IOS XR, Junos, Arista
& Nokia having releases around the corner, I hope this will be useful
when planning your Large Communities deployment later this year.
