Routing Integrity

Each of Us Protecting All of Us

I2 Routing Integrity

Protecting our research and education (R&E) networks from common routing threats is in every institution’s best interest – and it takes a community effort.

Internet2 promotes the adoption of Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) and additional best practices to strengthen the resilience and reliability of data movement across the R&E network ecosystem to support our shared missions. Together we can protect the security of our individual networks and contribute to a safer internet for all.

No detours, no delays, and no outages – that’s the goal of Internet2’s Routing Integrity initiative.

Protect Your Network

Watch this 7-minute video to understand the why and how of protecting your network with ARIN’s Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) service.
What is Routing Integrity?
  • routing security as defined by MANRS
  • hardening of network devices through multi-factor authentication, logging, regular review of firmware, and more
  • detection and mitigation of DDoS attacks
  • resilient cloud connectivity
  • IPv6 deployment
Did you know? ARIN’s fees to secure legacy network resources are rising. Taking action before 2024 may save the R&E community millions of dollars.
