The best way to support secure communication in the Internet is the subject of much debate. The role of secure routing, in particular, has received considerable attention. The debate has been dominated by a "Purist" philosophy that advocates the ubiquitous deployment of a secure version of BGP. The purist approach seems natural, if not mandatory, since BGP is the glue that holds the disparate parts of the Internet together.
