Abstract: The increasing economic importance of IP networking, combined with a sharp increase in the frequency and sophistication of attacks, has made security of critical importance for IP data networks. In response to this need, a group of service providers and vendors, operating as part of the Network Reliability and Interoperability Council (NRIC), has developed a set of best practices for enhancing data network security. This talk will give a short overview of NRIC and of the best practices for security. We will give an example of how best practices can be useful in stopping attacks such as the slammer/sapphire worm, and will provider pointers to more information on NRIC and the NRIC best practices for security.
