Network Disaggregation and SDN; A Simple Approach

Two of the hottest trends in networking today are network disaggregation and SDN. This is great for many reasons. It’s also confusing. The marketing hype makes it hard to understand either topic. SDN has become so vague that if you ask 10 experts what it means, you are likely to get 12 different answers. Network […]

See you at AWS re:Invent 2016!

While I find myself traveling far less than in years past (by design), I still get to poke my head out into the world of NOGs and Cons from time to time. One such opportunity is upon us this week; I’m packing up today for the 2016 edition of AWS re:Invent. Heralded as the “largest global […]

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 […]

Juniper Tips from the JNCIA-Junos Study Guides

I’ve been a network engineer for well over a decade now. I’ve spent much of that time working on Juniper Networks devices. I even have a certification stating that I’m an expert. You might think that means I know it all by now. In fact it’s the opposite. As with anything, the more I learn, […]

The Shadow of the Web

I believe in the Internet As an ideal. As a web of human minds. As a wonder of the world, not built through totalitarian control but rather through fierce coopetition. As a technological pillar held up by a newer, better, governance structure. As the facilitator of knowledge sharing and communication on a level so advanced […]

IETF 92: Shaping the Future of The New IP

Late last month I attended the 92nd meeting of the IETF, the Internet Engineering Task Force. For those unfamiliar, the IETF is an international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers. It’s open to any interested individual, and most of its work is conducted over the Internet. The mission of the IETF is to: […]

Broccoli Technologies: They’re Good For All of Us

This article was written for The New IP, and appeared there under the title “IPv4 vs. IPv6 in the New IP” on 6 March, 2015. As you may have noticed, I tend to (re)post everything I write here on my personal blog. This time I’ve decided to publish this article here with it’s original title, […]

IPv6 Security Myth #9: There Aren’t Any IPv6 Security Resources

We are approaching the end of this 10 part series on the most common IPv6 security myths. Now it’s time to turn our eyes away from security risks to focus a bit more on security resources. Today’s myth is actually one of the most harmful to those who hold it. If you believe that there […]

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 #1: I’m Not Running IPv6 so I Don’t Have to Worry

Now that IPv6 is being actively deployed around the world, security is more and more a growing concern. Unfortunately, there are still a large number of myths that plague the IPv6 security world. These are things that people state as fact but simply aren’t true. While traveling the world, talking to the people who’ve already […]
