Research Goals

This network exists to further a variety of goals, primarily focused on learning and research with a mix of personal connectivity for a variety of projects.

Short Term

  • iBGP between alcazar, bastion, citadel
  • Minimal RIPE object updater
  • Renumber & rename everything
  • NTP (GPS, PPS synced)
  • DNS Recursive
  • Connect to various IX
  • Looking Glass
  • DN42 OpenBSD nodes
  • DN42 BGP
  • DN42 DNS
  • DN42 website
  • DN42 LG
  • RBL Monitoring
  • PeerLock
  • RPKIViews -- RPKI Transparency
done:
  • Network Plan
  • Bastion at Daedalean / IPng Networks
  • Citadel at AXA / Init7
  • DNS Authoritive is at paphosting.net (ns.paphosting.ch / chzrh02.paphosting.net is hosted by AS57777
  • RIPE: LIR, ASN, IPv4 prefix and IPv6 prefix
  • Get transit and primary uplink from IPng Networks
  • Announce AS57777 over BGP
  • Become part of the DFZ (Default Free Zone) - no default routes on our routers!
  • Reverse & Forward DNS
  • Enable ROAs using RIPE hosted CA
  • DN42 ASN, IPv4, IPv6
  • Wireguard between alcazar, bastion, citadel
  • Implement RPKI: ROA & Drop invalids
  • Implement NLNOG BGPFilterGuide
  • Alcazar at new home location over G.Fast
  • RIPE Atlas nodes: 1 Anchor @ bastion, 2 probes @ alcazar + citadel
  • Microsoft Outlook Smart Network Data Service Junk Mail Reporting Program
  • NLNOG Ring LookingGlass
  • NLNOG Ring node @ bastion

Intermediate

  • Management tool for this all; requires goi.li to be functional

Long Term (year+)

  • Connect citadel to SwissIX for local peering: maybe move to other DC?
  • Research:
    • new BGP toolkits
    • network management & deployment
    • server management & deployment
    • traffic monitoring
    • traffic management
    • setup arm64 cluster for shared-dedicated services
