S-BGP (some operational content)

Hi NANOG folks,

I read an IEEE(?) draft on Secure BGP a short time ago, a draft which
discussed using a PKI to prove that a netblock was reachable through a give
provider.  There were several other concepts in the document relating to
actual vulnerabilities in BGP.  Most of them looked valid.

My questions become:

a) Has there ever been a published man-in-the-middle attack of someone using
   BGP to affect someone else's network?
b) Does anyone know of other groups that are focusing on developing new ways
   of combating the vulnerabilities?
