RPKI Tutorial - Amreesh Phokeer (ISOC)


The goal is this tutorial to provide a general understanding of the fundamental components that make up the RPKI ecosystem, so the participant can feel more confident when creating ROAs and hopefully, when implementing RPKI-Based filtering (ROV).


Detailed agenda:

- Introduction to RPKI and its chain of trust;

- ROA Objects. What they are and what they describe;

 - Exercise/Demo: Creating ROAs;

- Validation Tools;

- How a relying party works;

- Overview of routinator, fort, rpki-client;

 - Exercise/Demo: Installing and running validators;

- ROA and BGP Validation. How it works and what it means;

 - Exercise/Demo: Setting up ROV;

 - Exercise/Demo: Announcing a ROA-Validated prefix

- The future of RPKI:

 - BGPSec;

 - ASPA;

- Closing remarks


A minimum of knowledge of Routing and BGP is required to participate.


This is a hands on session where you will require a laptop.


While this training is free because of sponsorship, there are limited spaces and therefore a vetting process is in place to ensure the candidates meet the requirements and will attend the session.
