AFRINIC’s survey on IPv6 deployment carried out in 2017 identified ‘lack of confidence’ in deploying IPv6 and adopting other key technologies as one the main challenges holding back IPv6 deployment in Africa.

The IPv6 deployment Helpdesk was thus created to support and accompany engineers in their move towards IPv6 deployment in their networks and the adoption of the Internet Routing Registry and RPKI. 


AFRINIC is pleased to partner once again with PCH and USTTI to bring you a two-part webinar series on DNS:

  1. How to properly set up a resilient DNS Infrastructure - 23rd July 2020
  2.  DNS Security and Privacy - 6th August 2020

DNS is a critical service on the Internet. However, while assisting organisations with their IPv6 deployments, we have observed that their DNS is not properly set up. There are also many security and privacy concerns that engineers and the general community may not be aware of.In this first webinar we will: 

* Describe how the DNS components work together to provide the DNS
 * Look at how to design and deploy authoritative DNS servers and
 * Understand the relationship between IP, IRR and reverse zones.
 * Understand the role of anycast in DNS.Use the following link to register, and don't forget to add the event to your calendar: 

Date: 23rd July 2020Time: * 12:30 UTC (Ghana, Cote D'Ivoire)
 * 13:30 WAT (Nigeria, Cameroon)
 * 15:30 EAT (Kenya, Uganda)
 * 16:30 GST (Mauritius, Seychelles, Madagascar)

This webinar will be in English. A French one will be organised later.The second webinar will focus on the various DNS privacy and security risks, what has been done to secure the DNS protocol suite and 
infrastructure and how you can maximize your security and privacy. * About AFRINIC - https://afrinic.net/about

Technologies are evolving rapidly. And most people seem to be struggling to keep up with the developments. But the changes offer enormous opportunities for knowledge sharing, networking and promotion of best practices. These opportunities are crucial for the growth of the Internet in Africa. Through its established conference, the African Network Information Centre (AFRINIC), the African Network Operators Group and the other AF* organisations convene the annual Africa Internet Summit (AIS) to provide an important platform for a broad spectrum of ICT professionals to share rich experiences and knowledge on the growth, use and effects of ICTs. Due to the prevailing Covd-19 pandemic, the Africa Internet Summit 2020 (AIS’20) will be held online on 14-18 September 2020
