The Hedge Podcast Episode 42: Andrei Robachevsky and MANRS

The security of the global routing table is foundational to the security of the overall Internet as an ecosystem—if routing cannot be trusted, then everything that relies on routing is suspect, as well. Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a project of the Internet Society designed to draw network operators of all kinds into thinking about, and doing something about, the security of the global routing table by using common-sense filtering and observation. Andrei Robachevsky joins Russ White and Tom Ammon to talk about MANRS.

More information about MANRS can be found on the project web site, including how to join and how to support global routing security.

The Hedge Episode 41: Centralized Architectures with Jari Arkko

Consolidation is a well-recognized trend in the Internet ecosystem—but what does this centralization mean in terms of distributed systems, such as the DNS? Jari Arkko joins this episode of the Hedge, along with Alvaro Retana, to discuss the import and impact of centralization on the Internet through his draft, draft-arkko-arch-infrastructure-centralisation.

The Hedge Podcast 40: Greg Ferro and the Path from Automated to Autonomic

The indomitable Greg Ferro joins this episode of the Hedge to talk about the path from automated to autonomic, including why you shouldn’t put everything into “getting automation right,” and why you still need to know the basics even if we reach a completely autonomic world.

The Hedge Podcast Episode 39: Dan York and Open Standards Everywhere

The Internet Society exists to support the growth of the global ‘net across the world by working with stakeholders, building local connectivity like IXs and community based networks, and encouraging the use of open standards. On this episode of the Hedge, Dan York joins us to talk about the Open Standards Everywhere project which is part of the Internet Society.

The Hedge Podcast Episode 38: Evan Knox and Personal Marketing

Personal branding and marketing are two key topics that surface from time to time, but very few people talk about how to actually do these things. For this episode of the Hedge, Evan Knox from Caffeine Marketing to talk about the importance of personal marketing and branding, and some tips and tricks network engineers can follow to improve their personal brand.

The Hedge Podcast 037: Stephane Bortzmeyer and DNS Privacy

In this episode of the Hedge, Stephane Bortzmeyer joins Alvaro Retana and Russ White to discuss draft-ietf-dprive-rfc7626-bis, which “describes the privacy issues associated with the use of the DNS by Internet users.” Not many network engineers think about the privacy implications of DNS, a important part of the infrastructure we all rely on to make the Internet work.

The Hedge Episode 36: Rich Alderson and the Living Computer History Museum

The Living Computers History Museum and Labs was founding by Paul Allen to collect early computer systems and keep the constrained resource coding practices used on these systems alive. Over time it has developed into a living museum and lab, with hands-on access to some of the earliest examples of computing history. Rich Alderson joins us for this episode of the Hedge to describe the museum and its exhibits.

The Hedge Episode 35: Peter Jones and Single Pair Ethernet

When you think of new Ethernet standards, you probably think about faster and optical. There is, however, an entire world of buildings out there with older copper cabling, particularly in the industrial realm, that could see dramatic improvements in productivity if their control and monitoring systems could be moved to IP. In these cases, what is needed is an Ethernet standard that runs over a single copper pair, and yet offers enough speed to support industrial use cases. Peter Jones joins Jeremy Filliben and Russ White to discuss single pair Ethernet.

The Hedge Podcast Episode 33: Balazs Varga and DETNET

Balazs Varge joins Alvaro Retana and Russ White on this episode of the Hedge to discuss the working going on in the IETF around deterministic networking. This work is important for applications requiring networks providing low latency and loss.

The Hedge Podcast Episode 32: Overcommunication

Michael Natkin, over at Glowforge, writes: “That’s a funny thing about our minds. In the absence of information, they fill in the gaps and make up all sorts of plausible things, without the owners of said minds even realizing it is happening.” The answer, he says, is to overcommunicate. Michael joins Eyvonne Sharpe, Tom Ammon, and Russ White on this episode of the Hedge to discuss what it means to overcommunicate.
