Day 2 of RIPE 77 is done and dusted. It was another beautiful, warm sunny day in Amsterdam (not that many of us saw much of it!) and by the end of the day, we welcomed 714 attendees (including 203 newcomers). The meeting programme featured a full-day of plenary presentations.
Highlights from Tuesday’s programme:
- Henrik Kramshoej kicked off the Tuesday morning Plenary session with an engaging talk on VXLAN Security or Injection.
- Attilla de Groot discussed EVPN to the Host and then Flemming Heino spoke about Deploying a Disaggregated Network Model using EVPN Technology at LINX.
- Lorenzo Cogotti on BGP Scanner, BGP Communities: Even more Worms in the Routing Can by Florian Streibelt and Routing Attacks in Bitcoin by Maria Apostolaki, and Daniel Karrenberg’s homage to Jon Postel on the 20th anniversary of his passing (if you knew Jon personally, see Daniel to wear a sticker in his memory).
- An amazing Women in Tech Lunch with every seat filled, 90 minutes of engaging interaction with the audience and expert panel on “Quotas – Harmful or Helpful?” and “Male Allies – Why We Need Them, How to Find Them”.
- Constanze Dietrich spoke about the human factors of security misconfigurations, including the results of a comprehensive survey.
- Niels ten Oever presented about innovation and human rights in the Internet architecture, asking whether the governance model of self-regulation in the Internet architecture has led to the production of an environment that supports innovations and protects human rights.
- William Sylvester presented the RIPE Accountability Task Force Report, including recommendations to the RIPE Chair.
- Katherine Jarmul, Andreas Dewes and Andreas Lehrer dove deep into how machine learning can help solve networking problems, including security and traffic classification.
- Tom Strickx talked about using open source tools to make changes in a global anycast infrastructure.
- Lightning talks on the RIPE NCC Quantum Internet Hackathon, 8 Ways Engineers Use Snabb and the Sunset of VXLAN
The day concluded with an interesting BoF discussion on how the RIPE Meetings are evolving and what future RIPE Meetings should look like, the Newcomers’ Reception and the first off-site social at ESCAPE.
