While I was discussing the intricacies of Cisco’s IPv6 implementation with Gunter Van de Velde a while ago, he suddenly changed hats and asked me whether I would be willing to contribute to a BGP filtering best practices draft. I’m still too young to realize it’s not a good idea to say YES every time you see something interesting and immediately accepted the challenge.
Gunter put together a fantastic team including Jerome Durand and Gert Doering and the first results of our work (where Jerome did most of the heavy lifting) have been published last night … I proudly present you the BGP operations and security draft. Comments, corrections and additions are most welcome!
