Study of BGP security issues and technique for AS route validation

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • BGP (Border Gateway Routing Protocol) is the only global internet routing protocol is the only global Internet routing protocol. Unfortunately BGP lacks the fundamental authentication or validation, and for this reason false Internet routes can be easily introduced into the routing infrastructure, either accidentally or by malicious attack. This paper identifies the misconfigurations that could cause harm to routing information. It also suggests the policy, configuration best practices and consideration which would protect against bogus routes announced in BGP internal infrastructure and the Internet. Rather than suggesting an entire protocol replacement, or cryptographic solution based on encryption, this paper concentrates on the current implementation of BGP.
