      Recently called into a client who where in the process of adopting Office 365 and experiencing large performance issues.
      It appears no one read the Microsoft networking best practice.

      Internal politics and old fashioned view on security made the implementation more complex than it needed to be.

      The presentation covers the key issues and some of the most creative work arounds i have ever had to implement.

      Potential ISP challenges with DNS over HTTPS 30m Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Manchester Central Convention Complex

      Petersfield Manchester M2 3GX

      The future introduction of DNS over HTTPS (DoH), defined in RFC8484, presents a number of challenges to network operators. BT, Comcast, Deutsche Telecom, OpenXchange and others have prepared an Internet Draft to present at the March IETF in Prague. The objective was to document the problem space and make suggestions that could help inform network operators on how to take account of DoH deployment. The document also identified topics that may require further analysis.

      This presentation will provide an overview of these challenges, report on the outcome of the IETF meeting and provide an opportunity for the wider UK operator community to engage with the proposal.

      NAT64Check v.2 tool 30m Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Manchester Central Convention Complex

      Petersfield Manchester M2 3GX

      As many mobile operators were moving to IPv6 only which is incompatible with IPv4 on the wire, it’s necessary to employ transition mechanisms such as 464XLAT or NAT64.

      When using NAT64 there are many things that need to be checked to ensure they work correctly. NAT64check has therefore been developed to allow websites to be checked for consistency over IPv4, IPv6-only and NAT64, as well to compare responsiveness using the different protocols. This allows network and system administrators to easily identify anything is ‘broken’ and to pinpoint where the problems are occurring, thus allowing any non-IPv6 compatible elements on the website to be fixed. For example, even if a web server is not running IPv6 (why not?), hardcoded IPv4 addresses can cause NAT64 to fail. After quite successful first version of the tool we decided to build version 2, a complete rewrite, built on different, distributed architecture and platform. NAT64Check v.2 tool is published, so we'll discuss mainly new version of the tool.

      Jan Zorz from ISOC will give an insight and discuss some issues that he found while testing NAT64/DNS64 technology in real life scenarios and use-cases.

      Psychology of IPv6 15m Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Manchester Central Convention Complex

      Petersfield Manchester M2 3GX

      Thoughts about the human side of IPv6 deployment which has often an underestimated and unexpected influence on the progress of your IPv6 project. It is a humorous and serious look at what really prevents/makes IPv6 deployments happen based on my experience over the years in various companies and the UK IPv6 Council.

      IPv6-only Remote Access VPN - a road less travelled 15m Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Manchester Central Convention Complex

      Petersfield Manchester M2 3GX

      You may have heard that the road towards an IPv6 only network is a really bumpy one, probably that is why it is not taken that much. To stay with the analogy, in this presentation I will cover how it felt for Microsoft CCE (formerly known as Microsoft IT) to drive their Next Generation Remote Access VPN service down that route. We haven’t arrived yet, but along the way we have already passed several points of interest that are worth telling about not only to family but also to the friends from the industry.

      Scanning IPv6 Address Space… and the remote vulnerabilities it uncovers 15m Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Charter 1, 2 & 3

      Manchester Central Convention Complex

      Petersfield Manchester M2 3GX

      During some research which found CVE-2018-19298 (MikroTik IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol exhaustion), I uncovered a larger problem with MikroTik RouterOS’s handling of IPv6 packets. This led to CVE-2018-19299, an unpublished and as yet unfixed (despite almost one year elapsing since vendor acknowledgement) vulnerability in RouterOS which allows for remote, unauthenticated denial of service. Unpublished… until UKNOF 43!
