A friend just told me that Cybernet told him there is a Switzerlandwide Internet Problem.
Does anybody know something?

It seems like Salt is no longer supplying their own DNS servers when
establishing an LTE connection. Instead, the network responds with Google DNS
servers (126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52).
Is there a particular reason for that?
I'd rather not send all my DNS requests to Google.
Perhaps it's time to switch to private resolvers everywhere, if not even ISPs
are providing that service any more...
Thanks for any info.
As SWITCH has announced the sunset of http://mirror.switch.ch/ a while
ago we are happy to announce a successor mirror.init7.net.
By supporting IPv6 and legacy IPv4 and https as well as legacy http we
hope to be able to support the Opensource- and Internet-Community in the
In case your DNS resolver is broken we gave mirror.init7.net nice and
easy to memorize IP addresses:
We would like to express our gratitude to SWITCH for providing a mirror
service for much longer than a decade.
PS. a hint for Debian and Ubuntu users - please ensure you have the
package apt-transport-https installed to use https.

FYI I will be taking the train at 6:42 from GVA, in 2nd class. If anyone wanna join me, I'll try to take some space for those stepping in in Lausanne.
Cheers and see you all tomorrow ! :)

A quick followup for my lightning talk from last year about BGP LLGR:
- Support has been added in BIRD 1.6, BIRD 2 and GoBGP. AFAIK, Cisco
still only supports it on VPN and FlowSpec families.
- Draft 4 has been published and IANA has assigned capability code and
well-known comunity (compatible with existing implementations).
Make sure all variables are initialised before use.
- The Elements of Programming Style (Kernighan & Plauger)
Dear SwiNOG community,
Here is the final agenda for SwiNOG #34 on Tuesday 30.10.2018 on top of Gurten.
A big thank you to A10 Networks for sponsoring this event and for RETN GmbH supporting us.
(registration closes on 22.10.2018 – after that you need to pay extra fee for late reg.)
We still have time for Lightning Talks, if you’re up for it, you’ll get a free voucher for the next event or if submitted before 22.10.2018 – for SwiNOG#34
08:15 - Registration, Coffee & Gipfeli
09:15 - Welcome, Agenda
09:20 - IPv6 first in Data Center Light | Nico Schottelius (ungleich glarus ag)
Our crowdfunding campaign last year was a great success and raised more than CHF 250,000.00: with this success we built a data center in Glarus Süd, Switzerland in the heart of the Alps. It is called Data Center Light and it is operating with 100% hydropower. The idea behind this data center project is supporting the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community as well as empowering local communities. It is fully open source and relies on IPv6 which we strongly believe in, because we think that IPv6 will become more important in the near future and will eventually replace IPv4 in the long run.
09:40 - IoT = Internet of Threats? | Heiko Frank (A10 Networks)
We are moving from 300 Gbps range attacks to 1Tbps+ attacks by using a botnet with IoT devices. A10 Presents 5 necessary steps to be prepared for colossal DDoS attacks. The A10 DDoS-One Protection is a 360 degrees solution to cover the complete lifecycle of a next generation DDoS protection.
10:10 – Coffee Break
10:40 - The new Post and Telecommunications Surveillance Act (BÜPF) | Alexandre Suter + Nils Güggi (Post and Telecommunications Surveillance Service PTSS)
In November 2017, the Federal Council announced that the new Post and Telecommunications Surveillance Act (BÜPF) would enter into force on March 1st, 2018. One year later, PTSS will present the first experience with the new legislation and outline the relevant legal and technical aspects for Swiss service providers.
11:40 - Automating DNSSEC | Daniel Stirnimann (SWITCH)
SWITCH has implemented a method (RFC 7344, 8078) to allow DNS operators to automatically update DNSSEC keys at the registry as opposed to manual updates through a registrar interface. This presentation will provide details about the implementation and a demonstration of securing a zone with one command.
12:05 - Lunch
13:35 - PeeringDB Update | Arnold Nipper (PeeringDB)
As PeeringDB is an ongoing project this will be a short update only.
13:45 - 400G - don't get confused with this transceiver generation | Thomas Weible (Flexoptix GmbH)
Transmission speed of 400G is becoming a reality, with new challenges for optical and electrical components in high speed systems emerging as well. PAM4 modulation is one key component for 400G transmission with transceivers, this talk will be a show and tell into PAM4. With this knowledge, the design decisions behind the new formfactors OSFP, QSFP-DD, SFP56-DD and µQSFP are easier to understand. This talk will help you to:
* Design / build new kind of applications or connections with your networking gear in the field
* Avoid pitfalls when designing your racks
* Be aware how power consumption and new plugs will be part of the new world of 400G transceivers.
14:15 - OpenBGPD, gotta go fast! | Claudio Jeker (OpenBGPD)
OpenBGPD was started in 2003 and became quickly popular in many smaller networks and also as route-server at many IXPs. Over the years the requirements for running BGP -- especially route servers at exchange points -- has changed but OpenBGPD did not keep up with some of them. Thanks to the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund and donations by various IXPs a lot of improvements are done. This presentation is an update what was achieved until now and what will come. One of the show cases is how OpenBGPD can be used
together with a route-server -- a config generator -- to build secure route-servers for IXPs.
14:45 - Afternoon Break
15:15 - RomandIX : Year one | Nicolas Desir + Will van Gulik (RomandIX)
Broadcast/MAC learning, ARP/NDP inspection, sponge: Is there another paradigm? Let's hack a Switch and build a community !
15:45 - McPatchbot @ DE-CIX | Arnold Nipper (DE-CIX)
16:55 – tba, not everything in the box yet but it looks like we’ll fill it up till 17:00
17:00 - Social Event
Looking forward to seeing all of you!!!
