Huawei has become a founding member of the Equipment Vendor Programme (EVP) of the Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS), in an effort to actively improve global Internet security.
MANRS is a global initiative fostered by the Internet Society (ISOC). It aims to provide crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats, such as Internet route hijacking, route leakage, and address spoofing through co-operation among carriers, IXPs, CDN and cloud providers, equipment vendors, and policy decision makers. Ultimately, it aims to improve Internet security and resilience. The MANRS EVP is a new programme for equipment vendors.
Andrei Robachevsky, Senior Director, Technology Programmes for the ISOC says: "Huawei, a worldwide leader in network equipment, is leading by example through its active contributions to the new MANRS Equipment Vendor Programme.
"Along with other founding participants in the programme, Huawei’s involvement shows the importance network equipment vendors have in Internet routing security, and we hope it will motivate more members of the Internet infrastructure community to continue to make advancements to a more secure Internet for everyone."
Huawei's Hank Chen, President of Router Domain, Data Communication Product Line adds: "Routing security is crucial to Internet security, and that includes network devices (e.g., routers and IXP switches), the foundation of the Internet.
"Over the years, Huawei has dedicated itself to building secure and reliable network devices and has extensive capabilities and experience in the field.
In the future, Huawei says it will continue to make efforts to ensure the openness, security, and stability of the Internet, and work with industry partners to promote the prosperity of the global Internet.
