Everyday Automation with StackStorm and The New Extreme

When your name is an adjective, you’re just asking to be the brunt of many punishing puns. Based on the chatter during the second day of NFD17, that is certainly true for Extreme Networks. In fact, it’s actually hard to avoid. So let’s just dive right in to extreme automation, with Extreme Networks. I hope […]

Hawt or Naught – NANOG 72

Last week I was in Atlanta with 879 of my friends for NANOG 72; the seventy second meeting of the North American Network Operators Group. NANOG is always a marathon of presentations, conversations, meals, and meetings. This one was no different – a whirlwind of learning, talking, speaking, and yes, even a bit of drinking. […]

Myriad and Me

Wow. It’s been four months since I posted anything longer than a Facebook update. That makes me feel very lazy. As is typically the case though, my laziness in writing was caused not by sloth but rather by a shift in priority. A shift in priority? My first real business-world mentor chided me any time I said […]

Chris Grundemann: 2015 NANOG Board Candidate

After a lot of thought, a bit of encouragement, and just enough foolish sense of duty, I’ve decided to run for the NANOG Board of Directors in this year’s election. NANOG is where I learned much of what has made me a good engineer and a bunch of what makes me a decent human. It’s where […]

Chris Grundemann @ APRICOT 2015 to talk IETF & BCOP

After nearly 3 weeks at home (my longest stretch since last August), I’m off to join the already-in-progress APRICOT 2015 in Fukuoka, Japan. For those who don’t know, the annual APRICOT (Asia Pacific Regional Internet Conference on Operational Technologies) is a: Ten-day long summit consist[ing] of seminars, workshops, tutorials, conference sessions, birds-of-a-feather (BOFs), and other […]

Introducing RFC 7454: BGP Operations and Security

Today I’m re-reading an IETF RFC that was published just this month. RFC 7454 is titled “BGP Operations and Security” and that’s exactly what it’s about. The documents’ abstract does a great job of summarizing the content: This document describes measures to protect the BGP sessions itself such as Time to Live (TTL), the TCP […]

IPv6 Security Myth #7: 96 More Bits, No Magic

This week’s myth is interesting because if we weren’t talking security it wouldn’t be a myth. Say what? The phrase “96 more bits, no magic” is basically a way of saying that IPv6 is just like IPv4, with longer addresses. From a pure routing and switching perspective, this is quite accurate. OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP […]
