The BGP Operations and Security Training Course is a two-day course that offers an in-depth look into Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). It covers the basics of how it works through to advanced topics such as route reflectors, policy, filtering, route selection and the security aspect of the protocol. The course also covers bogon filtering, Internet Routing Registries and the Resource Certification (RPKI) framework. Participants are able to reinforce the theory through practice with our interactive exercises following each topic.
