Re: NANOG ISP Security BOF

  • From: Merike Kaeo

As Sean stated, it is more of an issue of who comes to NANOG. Anyone working on security issues within ISP's is welcome to come.....we WANT them to come and participate. Sorry if it was misleading.

backbone security techniques to speak. The interaction of this set to the
set of peering coordinators tends to be rather weak - not nonexistant,
just not very significant.
