NANOG by Merit Network, Inc.

[archive] The NANOG mailing list is established to provide a forum for the exchange of technical information and the discussion of specific implementation issues that require cooperation among network service providers.

Bogon-Announce by Jared Mauch, Team Cymru, et al

[archive] This list is designed to be a one-way mechanism for announcing new IPv4 and ASN allocations. The purpose is to help networks to adjust their bogon filters in response to new allocations. The list is not intended to be a discussion list on filtering philosophies or methods; there are myriad other fora for such discourse. This list was created so that NOCs and other folks could have a single place to receive only announcements regarding new IPv4 and ASN allocations.

NSP-SEC by Jared Mauch et al

The nsp-security [NSP-SEC] forum is a volunteer incident response mailing list, which coordinates the interaction between ISPs and NSPs in near real-time and tracks exploits and compromised systems as well as mitigates the effects of those exploits on ISP networks. The list has helped mitigate attacks and will continue to do so. Membership in NSP-SEC is restricted to those actively involved in the mitigation of NSP security incidents within organizations in the IP transit, content, and service provider community. Therefore, it will be limited to operators, vendors, researchers, and people in the FIRST community working to stop NSP security incidents. That means no press and (hopefully) none of the "bad guys." It also means that engineers who do not directly work in the core transit/content provider network do not fit the purview of NSP-SEC and should look for other forums.
