AMS-IX Now Officially Member of the 'Trusted Networks Initiative'

On Wednesday, April 15th AMS-IX, ASP4ALL, ING Bank, Logius, NL-ix and Rabobank signed the certificate making them a member of the 'Trusted Network Initiative'. The signing took place at the Innovation Room hosted as part of the Cyber Security Week on the Campus of The Hague Security Delta.

Since several months, the Internet has a new facility to prepare for extremely heavy DDoS attacks. The Trusted Networks Initiative makes it possible to temporarily close off part of the internet, while important websites still remain accessible to regular end users. This last resort Anti-DDoS solution is a newly developed additional mitigation approach, and is supported by many ICT stakeholders, all aiming to reduce the serious damage of these cyber attacks.

Steeds meer organisaties aangesloten bij Trusted Networks Initiative

Uitgever: The Hague Security Delta
Datum: 15 April 2015

Op woensdag 15 april hebben Rabobank, ING Bank, AMS-IX, NL-ix, ASP4ALL en Logius hun Trusted Networks Initiative partnerschap getekend. De ondertekening vond plaats op de campus van The Hague Security Delta tijdens de Innovation Room.

Sinds enkele maanden is deze nieuwe faciliteit beschikbaar die bescherming biedt tegen extreme DDoS aanvallen. Het Trusted Networks Initiative maakt het mogelijk om tijdelijk een deel van het internet af te sluiten en zodoende belangrijke websites beschikbaar te houden voor de belangrijkste groep gebruikers. Dit laatste extra redmiddel tegen DDoS aanvallen is een recent ontwikkelde techniek, ondersteund door een groot aantal ICT stakeholders. Zij willen hiermee de ernstige schade die dit soort cyberaanvallen veroorzaken verminderen.

Voor meer informatie en een overzicht van de overige gecertificeerde leden, inclusief initiatiefnemers HSD en NLnet, kunnen genteresseerden terecht op www.trustednetworksinitiative.nl.

Trusted Network Initiatief het laatste redmiddel tegen grote internet aanvallen.

Grote Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) aanvallen worden een maatschappelijk probleem. Naast de schade die DDoS aanvallen veroorzaken aan internet gekoppelde dienstverlening, hebben ze de potentie kritieke financile of overheidsdiensten tijdelijk onbereikbaar te maken, met grote gevolgen.

ING Bank, SNS Bank, Surfnet, XS4all, SIDN, ASP4all hebben zich als eerste aangesloten bij het Trusted Networks Initiative (TNI). De verwachting is dat andere grootbanken, kritische overheidsinstanties, ISPs, hosters en internet afhankelijke partijen spoedig volgen.

Het TNI heeft als doel vertrouwde netwerken op internet te onderscheiden en zo een vertrouwd internet te realiseren. Het voorziet aangesloten partijen van een laatste redmiddel tegen DDoS aanvallen. In geval van een grote of langdurige DDoS aanval, welke niet anderszins gemitigeerd kan worden, kan een partij zelf beslissen gebruik te maken van het Trusted Network. Het idee blinkt eigenlijk uit in eenvoud: net als in de middeleeuwen haalt men simpelweg de ophaalbrug op, om de vijand buiten te houden. Men verbreekt de verbinding met het globale internet om tijdelijk enkel bereikbaar te blijven via het Trusted Network.

Het idee is ontwikkeld door stichting NLnet en de NL-ix, dit is mede mogelijk gemaakt door The Hague Security Delta. Door de unieke opzet is TNI een gereedschap, dat ingezet kan worden door de grootste maar ook veel kleinere netwerken, zowel nationaal als internationaal. Naast een redmiddel biedt het initiatief ook een platform om aan verbetering van internet te werken en opsporing te verbeteren.

NL-ix organiseert drie informatie sessies in mei en juni om partijen bekend te maken met het TNI.

  • donderdag 7 mei 10:00 - 11:30
  • donderdag 21 mei 14:30 - 16:00
  • vrijdag 5 juni 10:00 - 11:30

Het aantal zitplaatsen is beperkt, daarom stellen wij voor om een persoon per netwerk te laten deelnemen. Laat ons via sales@nl-ix.net weten als je aan een van deze sessies wil deelnemen. Wij zullen de deelname persoonlijk confirmeren.
