Here is a great blog by my intern Animesh Kumar. He worked for my over the summer and created a great tool Ptolemy: The Network Cartographer. For me it was an amazing experience and I am so happy to have had Animesh working for me this summer.

DevOps against DDoS II: Monitoring BGP FlowSpec with Junos PyEz

This article continues my previous DevOps against DDoS I: Programming BGP FlowSpec with Junos PyEz post by providing basic machinery to monitor BGP Flow Specification route installation and enforcement.

 

This monitoring tool chest is also based on Junos PyEz and I will be leveraging YAML views and operational tables to provide a more programmatic, scalable and intuitive solution baseline.

Junos NETCONF and SSH tunneling (Part 1)

corpnet.jpgAutomating networking infrastructure is gaining momentum and folks are asking really great questions.  One was: How can we automate Junos/NETCONF for devices that sit behind a firewall or "junp-host"?  NETCONF uses an SSH subchannel (like scp) to exchange Remote Procedure Calls (RPC).  They wanted to see both the server-side ssh config and some Python sample code.  Check it out!
