Hands-On Tutorial: Changing Internet Policies

Room: Punta Cana 1

Instructor: Gianina Pensky, LACNIC


LACNIC is responsible for assigning and managing Internet number resources (IPv4, IPv6), Autonomous System Numbers, reverse resolution and other resources for the region of Latin America and the Caribbean.

The rules/policies under which LACNIC manages those resources are decided by our regional community.

The workshop has the following goals:

To explain and exchange ideas about the topics currently under discussion in our region

To teach anyone interested in participating in these decisions how to do so

To ensure that anyone interested can effectively participate in this process

The workshop is aimed at all members of the community interested in participating.

Tutorial: Resource Management / Mi LACNIC 

Room: Punta Cana 1

Instructors: Rodrigo Zambrana y Giovanna Butteri, Carlos Ortíz LACNIC


The main goal of this tutorial is to provide detailed information on the features and functions of Mi LACNIC and show participants how to use them.

It is geared towards representatives of LACNIC member organizations, in other words, organizations that have received IPv4 or IPv6 resources directly from LACNIC.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Register for in-person and online events, webinars and training activities
  • Retrieve historic data on the participation of their employees in LACNIC courses and events
  • Access the benefits included in their membership package
  • Use the platform to manage the IPv4 and IPv6 blocks and ASNs assigned by LACNIC
  • Update the information on their organization and points of contact
  • Delegate the reverse resolution of their UPv4/IPv6 blocks
  • Read the information displayed in the Whois system
  • Create RPKI certificates and ROAs
  • Understand the charts available on the platform


Because LACNIC NIRs use a different platform, the material used for the presentation will not be available to member organizations in Brazil and Mexico.

Tutorial: BGP/RPKI

Room: Punta Cana 1

Instructors: Mariela Rocha, Guillermo Cicileo, Gerardo Rada, Nicolás Antoniello, Erika Vega



In the context of the global Internet, BGP operation involves complex aspects that have recently been compounded by certain security events such as route hijacking and route leaks.

This is a two-part tutorial. The first session will present an introduction to the BGP protocol, as well as recommendations and current best practices both for carrier/ISP as well as for end-user organization environments.

The second part will introduce some trends in routing security, specifically origin validation using resource certification (RPKI).

    Principles of BGP operation and best practices

    Route hijacking and leaking

              Resource certification (RPKI)

    Creation of ROAs

The tutorial will include hands-on exercises, so we recommend that participants bring their own laptop computers.
