Wearing my NZITF hat this time.
We've put out a release this morning to get the message our about the
latest round of "Pay us Bitcoin or your network gets DDoSed'
You can see the release here:
But why I really wanted to address this audience was that one of our
suggestions to organisations is...
· Establish points of contact with your Internet Service Providers
(ISP) in the event that you need them to perform traffic filtering.
Defence against many attack types is most effective when performed
before it reaches your network. To date NZITF has had reports of
organisations being able to handle these attacks effectively through
collaboration with their ISPs.
And I wanted to make sure that all the Network Operators on the list
had a heads up that A) Organisations might call you asking for help
and B) you should work out what you'd do to help them.
In fact free to take the release, tweek it and send it out to your
customers if that helps.
Apologies to those who are on InternetNZ members-discuss who’re seeing this for a second time.
This looks like it would be fairly interesting for some people on the list. I’d be going myself if I’d known about it sooner!
Thanks to Hamish MacEwan for posting it originally.

Fred Baker will discuss concepts and a project in an architecture for
OpenStack/IPv6, with a view to simplification and scaling in large
datacenters, multi datacenter operations, multi-administration
projects, and hybrid datacenters. Bio: Cisco Fellow Fred Baker has
been involved in data communications since 1978 and the development of
the Internet since the 1980's. He has been involved in standards
development in the IETF, both contributing technically and managing
processes. His current interests are in routing, the management of
latency and data flow, the universal deployment of IPv6 (especially in
OpenStack data centers), and the public policy implications these
issues bring with them.
