Network Abuse BoF

When: Tuesday, 28 August 2012
Time: 18:00 - 19:30 (UTC +7)
Where: Auditorium
Moderator(s): Aftab A. Siddiqui, Cybernet
Frank Salanitri, APNIC

A BoF, or Birds of a Feather, is an informal meeting where participants can exchange information and discuss new ideas. There is no formal requirement for submitting papers or posting to mailing lists. The session is open for contributions from all attendees, including questions and comments.


During the past couple of years, the scope and scale of network abuse has evolved to an alarming level. According to reports by various security management organizations such as Arbor and TeamCymru, the Asia Pacific region is the origin of much of the world's malicious activities.

It is necessary for the community to discuss and share different ways to manage network abuse incidents, across their own organizations and on a national or regional level.

We need a platform for those concerned to work towards formulating best practices and mitigation techniques. The points to be discussed at the APNIC 34 BoF will include but are not limited to these topics:

  • How organizations are handling network based attacks
  • How organizations handle abuse complaints from within their networks
  • Significance of having a valid IRT object
  • Best practices to mitigate network abuse and how to address security concerns
