FYI: BGP Security Analysis

  • From: Ran Atkinson

Folks interested in Paul Vixie's recent thread (and others
interested in inter-domain routing) should read:

which is a preliminary security analysis of BGP.

It is also useful for folks to read draft-heffernan-* and to
actually deploy the TCP MD5 Authentication option for BGP sessions
(to protect against low-level attacks, not as protection for
bogus prefix advertisements from otherwise legitimate BGP peers).

Apologies for posting content onto NANOG and disturbing the
usual noise.
