13th APNIC Open Policy Meeting
RPSL Tutorial - Using RPSL and the Internet Routing Registry
As Internet backbone connectivity becomes more complex, it becomes more difficult to keep track of peering policies with providers and customers. By specifying routing details using RPSL in the public Internet Routing Registry (IRR) providers can use the information to check consistency and build router configurations.
This tutorial will use a case study to examine the benefits of converting from manual configuration of policy on routers to using tools such as RtConfig to extract policy information from IRR.
Participants will learn how to register objects in the IRR.
Participants are expected to have an understanding of Internet routing and BGP in particular.
