MANRS, the Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security global initiative, is gaining momentum across the research and education (R&E) community. Andrew Gallo, Principal IT Architect at The George Washington University, serves on the MANRS Advisory Group, and I represent Indiana University and Internet2 as a MANRS Ambassador.

During MANRS #5 Community meeting on March 31, it was announced that 20% of MANRS participants are from R&E institutions and networks. Internet2 has improved its support for MANRS by increasing network visibility to better equip our community with understanding their MANRS compliance. Internet2 now has BGP peering with the Network Startup Resource Center’s (NSRC.org) global routing report and RIPE’s Network Coordination Centre’s RIPEstat facility.

Internet2 has also developed reports to aid the community’s understanding of their progress in adopting MANRS practices. These reports provide Internet2 Connectors with a per-route view of how their routing policies are documented and announced via Internet Routing Registries such as ARIN and RADB.

Save the date: we’re planning a webinar for May 6 at 2 p.m. ET to review the new route reports. More details will be announced soon. Questions or comments may be sent to ssw@internet2.edu.
