RPKI tutorial

When : Wednesday, morning only

Presented by: APNIC


Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI), or Resource Certification, is a framework for verifying the authenticity of Internet number resources. It is aimed at improving the security of inter-domain routing. In this system, Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) can generate a verifiable digital statement that ties the Internet resource to their current holders, thereby establishing right-of-use. This course discusses the protocol behind RPKI, its management hierarchy, components, and implementation.

Target Audience:

This course is designed for network engineers, systems administrators, and anyone who is involved in network operations and Internet resource management.


Working knowledge on network operations and security deployment.

Course Outline:

  • What is RPKI?
  • Background of RPKI
  • Right to Resources
  • RPKI Components
  • APNIC Resource Certification
  • Route Origin Authorizations (ROA)
  • Creating ROA records
  • Router configuration demo

Network Monitoring with AMP

Presented by: Brendon Jones, Shane Alcock

When: Wednesday, afternoon only

This tutorial will provide an overview of the AMP network measurement software, as well as providing an opportunity for hands-on experimentation with the tools and web interfaces. Participants will install and configure their own AMP clients and servers, learn about the testing methods (what they measure and how they work), use the web interface to create test schedules, explore the data using the provided graphs, and integrate the measurements with external tools.

  • Preferably the ability to run VMs


  • Overview of the AMP measurement system
  • Installing and configuring an AMP client
