A BoF, or Birds of a Feather, is an informal meeting that can be convened for a variety of purposes such as exchanging information or discussing new ideas. There is also no formal requirement for submission of papers or posting to mailing lists. The session is open for contributions from all the attendees, incuding questions, and comments.
During the last couple of years, the scope and scale of network abuse has evolved to an alarming level. As per the reports by different security management organizations such as Arbor and TeamCymru, the Asia Pacific region is one of the biggest sources of malicious activities.
It is necessary for the community to discuss and share how they are managing network abuse incidents, across their own organizations and by economy or region.
We need a platform where those concerned are able to contribute toward formulating the best practices and mitigation techniques. The points which will be discussed at the APNIC 33 BoF are not limited to the list given below:
- How different organizations are handling network based attacks
- How they are handling abuse complaints from their network
- Significance of having a valid IRT object
- Best Practices to mitigate network abuse and how to address security concerns
The presentations and discussions will cover a wide range of topics, relevant to network operators.
