APNIC participated at the sixth Bhutan Network Operators Group (btNOG 6) meeting in Paro, Bhutan, from 3 to 7 June 2019.

btNOG 6 included a one-day conference, welcoming around 130 attendees, followed by three workshop tracks (Network Monitoring and Management, Routing and Switching, and Network Security with Packet Analysis), which were selected via a survey by the Bhutanese ICT community, unlike past btNOG events. btNOG 6 also celebrated 20 years of the Internet in Bhutan.

APNIC activities:

  • Jake Flint presented on 'Next Generation Internet Registry Services', focusing on Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP).
  • Tashi Phuntsho gave a presentation on the importance of securing Internet routing and discussed some tools and techniques that can help network operators.
  • Tashi also presented on APNIC's Community Honeynet Project and the two Honeypots in Bhutan, supported by btCIRT and Bhutan Telecom.
  • Tashi moderated a panel discussion entitled '20 years of Internet in Bhutan - the good and the bad'.
  • Tashi helped conduct the Network Security with Packet Analysis Workshop to around 31 participants alongside Alisha Gurung (BT) and Radhika Orari (btCIRT).
