The End of Undetected BGP Route Hijacking

BGP protocol is simple & the same on every router

  • BGP routers relay messages to neighbors about routes

  • Routes are constructed hop-by-hop, beyond the originator’s control

• BGP policy is complex, local, & without any global coordination

  • Local policies for accepting, rejecting and propagating routes

  • This is good: Great flexibility to support business objectives

  • This is bad: Vulnerability to bogus route propagation
