Specific Issues for Discussion
Routing security remains one of the top vulnerabilities when it comes to national, regional and global Internet infrastructure. Even though there are nearly daily calls and comments from multiple quarters (government, business, users) on cybersecurity and the need to secure Internet infrastructure, limited attention is paid to securing one of the foundational building blocks critical to the Internet’s functioning – the routing infrastructure.

Despite efforts in the Asia Pacific regional Internet community to promote and encourage the adoption of secure routing, there has been slow and limited adoption. As a community there is a strong desire to better understand the views from different sectors of our community on this matter and what we can do to further improve awareness and actions.
Describe the Relevance of Your Session to APrIGF
As mentioned briefly above, there are security challenges to establish trust in the local/regional/ global routing infrastructure. Security incidents are still on the rise and some incidents have real life consequences and raises critical alarms in any policy forum. This can only be addressed after understanding the point of from various quarters of the community. The solutions are there but what is stopping the community to implement those solutions require understanding of the issue from other side of the table. APrIGF provides the platform to discuss the issue in a multistakeholder environment, people from different walks of life provide their feedback to highlight the issues. Asia Pacific is already home to almost half of the population of the world and so the Internet users and network providers, the region should be champion in the infrastructure and routing security.
