Packet Pushers – Show 9 – Bogon Poetry

Greg’s off to Glastonbury this week, but Dan returned from extended vacation on the west coast of Ireland to record the show with Ethan.  They are joined by JT, an R&S CCIE candidate with a strong security background.  We did have a few audio drops on Skype this week, but that shouldn’t affect your enjoyment of this show too badly, we hope!

This week the Pushers discuss:

  • Cisco announces the CCIE Emeritus program.  10 year vets get options other than taking that pesky written test again.
  • Dan hits the highlights of the Cisco ASA firewall 8.3 code release – really more of a major than a minor release, so think we.
  • We chinwag about how we backdoor our own networks so that we can perform secure support when we’re off-site.  SSH tunneling, anyone?
  • Ethan reads some bogon poetry, a sad tale of woe about how ARIN revoked a network and BGP AS he’s responsible for.  Okay, there’s no poetry at all, but it’s still a sad tale.  Bring a hanky.

Big thanks JT for joining us – you can follow him (and please do!) on Twitter @WannabeCCIE.
