## Goals / objectives ## This five-day training course teaches the skills required for the configuration of scalable and secure routing, as well as best practice operation of the networks making up today's Internet. Participants in this course will learn more about: * BGP Best Practices, including Aggregation * BGP Multihoming techniques (redundancy and load balancing) * BGP Communities as used by Network Operators * BGP Security Operations Best Practices * Remotely Triggered Black Hole Filtering * Unicast Reverse Path Forwarding * Route Origin Validation using the RPKI ## Pre-requisites ## Workshop participants **must** be **currently using BGP** in their network, or **planning to deploy BGP** on existing external connections. Workshop participants must be proficient with a router command line interface, have a good understanding of OSPF or IS-IS, as well as experience with using BGP in an operational network. **This workshop is not an introduction.** The lab exercises use Cisco IOS configuration syntax. Participants must also have reviewed the Video Tutorials at [learn.nsrc.org](https://learn.nsrc.org/bgp), specifically those covering: * [Internet Routing](https://learn.nsrc.org/bgp/internet_routing) * [Routing Protocols](https://learn.nsrc.org/bgp/routing_protocols) * All the IS-IS clips, starting from [IS-IS Introduction](https://learn.nsrc.org/bgp/is-is) ## Technical Requirements ## Participants laptops/PCs must have: * a modern web browser installed (Chrome/Firefox/Safari/Opera)
