Tutorial: Best Practices for Determining the Traffic Matrix in IP Networks

\"Knowledge of the amount of traffic between source and destination pairs of a network is crucial to fundamental operational tasks such as capacity planning, traffic engineering, and peering management. Router vendors, third parties, academic researchers, and ingenious network engineers have devised multiple ways of collecting and estimating traffic matrices. This session presents an overview of applications of traffic matrices and operational experiences with the various approaches, including Netflow-based methods, mathematical estimation models, and MPLS (both RSVP and LDP) methods. Emphasis will be on practical experiences with each method.\"

Tutorial: Prefix Filtering, Black Holes and Protecting Your Business

BGP Prefixes leaking today potentially have a much largers business impact than it did 10 years ago. While groups look at long term fixes, this tutorial will focus on what ISPs should be doing now. This will be a compilation of best practices for all modes of BGP prefix filtering - between the ISP and their customers, the ISP and their peers, and the ISP and their upstream. It will also review reaction tools - like Remote Trigger Black Hole (RTBH) - to demonstrate how layers of filtering is used to protect the interest of business and the Internet. Scaling and operational maintenance of the prefix filters will also be covered.

ISP Security

Security incidents are a daily event for Internet Service Providers. Attacks on an ISP\'s customers, attacks from an ISP\'s customer, worms, BOTNETs, and attacks on the ISP\'s infrastructure are now one of many \"security\" NOC tickets throughout the day. This increase in the volume and intensity of attacks has forced ISP\'s to spend constrained resources to mitigate the effects of these attacks on their operations and services. This investment has helped minimize the effects of the attacks, but it has not helped stop them at the source. Stopping attacks at their source requires rapid and effective inter-ISP cooperation. Hence, these ISP Security BOFs are also used as a face-to- face sync up meeting for the NSP-SEC forum.

    Peering Wars: Lessons Learned from the Cogent-Telia De-peering

    We review the recent Cogent-Telia de-peering, including the countries impacted and various conjectures about the underlying business motivations. Once the peering session came back up, we observe Telia selecting many more routes to Cogent and Cogent selecting many fewer from Telia, implying this disagreement was at least partially resolved by adjusting peering ratios. Finally, we observe the new peering sessions that were established during the outage by both combatants and shifts in routing to other players even once service was restored.

    Rcat: Root Cause Analysis Tool

    Rcat is an eBGP root cause analysis tool developed by Anthony Lambert, PhD student at Orange Labs. It is publicly available at: <A HREF=\"http://rcat.rd.francetelecom.com/\" TARGET=\"_blank\">http://rcat.rd.francetelecom.com/</A> <BR><BR> Rcat analyzes BGP announcements sent by route-views eBGP peers, so as to determine which ASs are the more likely to have originating the inter domain structure changes which have lead to the emission and spread of the BGP announcements collected. Rcat aims at helping NOCs providing them with an increased reactivity during outages and an increased proactivity, detecting small recurrent events for instance. <BR><BR> In this presentation we focus on two case study: The impact of the January Mediterranean Cable Break in Egypt. We compare the events Rcat points out with results presented by Renesys on their blog. <BR><BR> We show that using Rcat results we succeed in rebuilding Renesys\' unreachability curve and that we are able using Rcat to explain what the different peaks in this curve correspond to. <BR><BR> The second case study is an event which has occurred 10757 times in February 2008, pointing out the ability of Rcat to detect recurrent events and the importance of fixing them as they put a constant, heavy and useless stress on routers.

    Making an AS Route like a Single Node

    We developed the Atomic Routing Theory (ART) to model an AS\'s policy objectives and the route assignment process, as well as to derive the requirements for correctly realizing any policy. Applying ART to BGP shows that with modest, incrementally deployable changes to internal BGP (iBGP), we can ensure that an AS realizes its policy correctly, regardless of the physical topology. These changes rely on existing and new technologies such as VRF and ADD-PATH. In addition to realizing today\'s policy objectives, when new features are introduced to BGP in the future, ART can guide the design and implementation so as to ensure correctness of the implementation of new and existing features.

    • Ricardo Oliveira, UCLA
    • Cyclops is a system that collects and displays information of AS-level connectivity between different networks extracted from looking glasses, route-servers and BGP tables+updates of hundreds of routers across the Internet. From an operational standpoint, Cyclops provides ISPs a view of how their connectivity is perceived from the outside, enabling a comparison between their observed connectivity and their intended connectivity. ISPs can easily use the tool to detect BGP misconfigurations, route leakages or false AS-link hijacks. Currently the tool provides three modes of operation: web interface, visualizer and download of raw data. Cyclops would greatly benefit from the community input and feedback.

    BGPlay is a successful web based service which gives information about traffic directed to a certain Internet destination form public BGP collectors operated by RIPE NCC (RIS project) and Oregon University (RouteViews project). iBGPlay is a new BGP routing visualization tool, derived form BGPlay (http://www.ibgplay.org/), that enables Internet Service Providers to graphically analyze the behavior over time of BGP paths collected from their own routers. It graphically provides information to relevant destinations selected by the users and chosen among the whole prefix set of the Internet. Among the other features, iBGPlay provide visualization highlighting of next-hops and internet exchange points, flexible prefix search, a aggregation of prefixes with the same behavior, dashboard with real time BGP event visualization, IPv6 support. ISPs can choose to adopt iBGPlay either as a service or as a software to be installed in the ISP\'s data center. The two options are functionally equivalent and are both free of charge. More than 12 ISPs (and ISP-like organizations) are currently using it.

They differ in the anomaly situations which they attempt to alert or mitigate, and also in the type(s) of data they use. Some are based on registry data from RIRs/IRRS (e.g. Nemecis) and others (PHAS, PGBGP) are driven by BGP trace data. The trace data is obtained from RIPE-RIS, Route-views, or a BGP speaker where the algorithm operates. We propose a new algorithm that combines the use of both registry and trace data, and also makes some key improvements over existing algorithms. We have built an evaluation platform called TERRAIN (Testing and Evaluation of Routing Robustness in Assurable Inter-domain Networking) on which these algorithms can be tested and empirically compared based on real and/or synthetically incorporated anomalies in BGP updates. We will present a variety of preliminary results providing interesting insights into quality metrics of registry data and the comparative performance of the various BGP robustness algorithms. Our objective is to share these early insights and invite feedback from the community to refine the TERRAIN evaluation tool to generate further useful results in the future.

    IANA Update

    This presentation will report on three areas on IANA\'s recent work. First, we will provide an update on the progress ICANN has made in its ongoing work to quantify the scale and distribution of the used but unallocated IPv4 address space. Secondly, we will also describe recent changes to the IPv4 Address Space Registry, particularly the updates to whois information and the \'various registries\' designations. Finally, we will provide an update on registry options for DNSSEC information, both via DNS and stored in GPG signed XML formats.

    ISP Route Filtering: Responsibilities and Technical Challenges

    This panel will focus on the methods for and deployment of inter-domain route filtering. We\'ll discuss the technical barriers to more ubiquitous deployment, what, where and why route filtering is applied today, and potential incremental deployment models that aim to improve coverage. Discussions will include why folks don\'t filter, policies to mitigate route leakage, RIR allocation authentication, IRR routing policy specification, object update and security considerations, and routing infrastructure challenges. The goal of this panel isn\'t just to revisit why route filtering can\'t be done today, but to assess viability of bi-lateral or other incremental models that further enable wider deployment.
