The API is the New CLI: Fact or Fiction?

The API is the new CLI.  If you’re a network engineer who pays attention to new technology, you’ve certainly heard some variation of this statement. But is it true?  Let’s start with the basics.  You know what a Command Line Interface (CLI) is; it’s how you talk to your switches and routers, and possibly many other devices […]

Builders, XaaS, Modularity, and the Future of Business

I attended AWS re:Invent 2016 about three or four weeks ago. Being new to both AWS and to re:Invent I was an outsider again, observing with virgin eyes. This means I learned a lot. Hopefully it means I saw things a bit differently than those more fully entrenched in this new community. So while others have […]

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 […]

IPv6 Security Myth #10: Deploying IPv6 is Too Risky

After a quick break to catch our breath (and read all those IPv6 Security Resources), it’s now time to look at our tenth and final IPv6 Security Myth. In many ways this myth is the most important myth to bust. Let’s take a look at why: Myth: Deploying IPv6 Makes My Network Less Secure Reality: […]

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 […]

IPv6 Security Myth #8: It Supports IPv6

Most of our IPv6 Security Myths are general notions, often passed on unwittingly between colleagues, friends, conference attendees, and others. Today’s myth is one that most often comes specifically from your vendors or suppliers. Whether it’s a hardware manufacturer, software developer, or Internet Service Provider (ISP), this myth is all about trust, but verify. Myth: […]

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 […]
