NANOG Meeting Presentation Abstract

How Secure are Secure BGP Protocols
Meeting: NANOG49
Date / Time: 2010-06-15 11:30am - 12:15pm
Room: Grand
Presenters: Speakers:
Sharon Goldberg, Microsoft Research & Boston University.
Abstract: A decade of research has been devoted to addressing vulnerabilities in BGP. The result is a plethora of BGP security proposals, each providing different types of security guarantees. To inform decisions about which of these protocols should be deployed in the Internet, we *quantify* and *compare* the ability of these protocols to blunt BGP "traffic attraction" attacks, namely, when an attacker manipulates BGP messages to blackhole traffic (e.g. prefix hijacks a la AS7007, Pakistan Telecom/YouTube), or intercept traffic (e.g. BGP man-in-the-middle attacks a la Pilosov & Kapela). We run simulations of traffic flow on maps of the Internet’s AS-level topology to determine and compare the impact of attacks on different BGP security protocols. The key implication of our work is that route filtering can be as effective as cryptographic routing protocols like Secure BGP (S-BGP) and secure origin BGP (soBGP).
