  • Route RPKI validation April 1st, 2022
    RPKI is a security framework by which network owners can validate and secure the critical route updates or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) announcements between public Internet networks. BGP is essentially the central nervous system of the Internet and one of its fundamental building blocks. The main function of BGP is to facilitate efficient routing between Autonomous Systems (AS), by building and maintaining the Internet routing table. The Internet routing table is effectively the navigation system of the Internet and without it, traffic would be unable to flow between its constituent networks. Unfortunately, routing equipment alone cannot distinguish between legitimate and malicious routing announcements,...
  • RIPE – Atlas Anchor February 17th, 2022
    We have become an even more integral part of the RIPE Atlas project by hosting an anchor, a device that allows for latency analysis of traffic between autonomous systems. Atlas anchors play an integral role in the RIPE Atlas network by acting both as enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors are able to perform many more measurements than a regular RIPE Atlas probe, and the large amount of data they collect is made available to everyone. In addition, anchors act as powerful targets that can...
  • MANRS June 20th, 2020
    GOLINE firmly believes in initiatives to protect networks, improve security and resilience of the global routing system. Therefore we decided to support the MANRS project and join as participants.Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, that provides crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats. MANRS offers specific actions via four programs for Network Operators, Internet Exchange Points, CDN and Cloud Providers, and Equipment Vendors. Requirements for Participation Please read the full MANRS Actions document before applying. You can become a participant if you meet these requirements: You (or your company) support...

Traceability permits sharing information on the life cycle of a given product as well as at each stage in the supply chain, from the producer to the distributor and the final consumer.

The historicisation of information is attained with the use of standard data records which are structured so as to make it possible to save and identify all the information required to answer the questions “What, Where, When and Why?”.
This permits identifying and analysing every event and process related to a specific product, thus making them available for all the partners in the supply chain.


Collecting data and associating it to any given product is conditional upon the latter being identified by:

  • GTIN + SERIAL NUMBER with an EPC/RFID tag or bar code (GS1-128, DataMatrix or DataBar)
  • GTIN + LOT through a bar code (GS1-128, DataMatrix o DataBar)

Certain events are recorded for each traced product (e.g. its position at a given stage of the supply chain) and the answers to the questions “What, Where, When and Why?” are collected.
The data so collected is then shared with the partners of the supply chain, thus ensuring the real-time visibility, monitoring and traceability of the products.
