Certainty in Scale with Spectrum

Certainty, Scale, Spectrum…? Sweet alliteration Chris, but what are you trying to say? I’m glad you asked! Let’s sift backwards through the significantly soft sounds and see what sentience I can supply: Spectrum? No, not a band of colors – the Spectrum I’m talking about here is Silicon. Specifically, it’s the ASIC from Mellanox Technologies […]

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. […]

Networking Field Day 17 – Here We Go!

I’m pumped! In just two days I fly out to the West Coast to participate in my very first Tech Field Day event. These Field Day events “bring together innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation and discussion format.” I’ve learned a ton watching past events and I’m super excited […]

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, […]

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, […]

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 #2: IPv6 Has Security Designed In

Today we continue with part 2 of the 10 part series on IPv6 Security Myths by debunking one of the myths I overhear people propagating out loud far too much: That you don’t need to worry about security because IPv6 has it built into the protocol. In this post, we’ll explore several of the reasons […]

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 […]
