Warm Greetings for the day.

Hope that you are doing great. My name is Kunal Raj and I represent MANRS (Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security) which is part of the initiative from Internet Society (ISOC)

About MANRS: https://www.manrs.org/, Internet Society (ISOC): https://www.internetsociety.org/

MANRS is a global initiative supported by the Internet Society (ISOC) whose goal is to reduce the most common routing threats. MANRS provide crucial fixes and best practice for the stability of the Internet.
Example of routing threats:
