ENISA's Workshop on Resilient Internet Interconnections

Reliable communications networks and the Internet in particular are critical to public welfare and economic stability. Attacks, disruptions due to physical phenomena, software and hardware failures, and human errors all endanger the proper functioning of these public infrastructures.

March 21, 2012 from 09:00 to 17:00
Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam, Damrak 1-5, Amsterdam, NL, Netherlands

While the Internet has been pretty reliable thus far, there is evidence of potential vulnerabilities in the interconnection system that could result in regional or continental failures. In order to strengthen this critical infrastructure, ENISA has initiated a study to identify good practices for resilient Internet interconnections, considering the following five subjects:

  • Market and economical forces that drive the interconnection of Autonomous Systems
  • Technical good practices that (would) make the interconnection system more resilient
  • The existence and terms of inter-operator mutual aid assistance agreements
  • Policy and regulatory issues that regulate interconnection
  • Aspects of traffic prioritization

The Workshop has provide the opportunity to present the study findings to date, collect feedback and design an agenda for future steps to create a more resilience Internet Interconnection ecosystem.

The Agenda of the event can be found here.

Below are the presentations given during the workshop:

C. Hall - Summary of Inter-X Study

D. Weller - IP Traffic Exchange

A. Robachevsky - Findings from the Routing Security Roundtable

R. Rainys - Investigation of the Regional Internet Infrastructure Dependability
