Real-Time Experiments of Interdomain Network Routing Attacks
Source: Florida International University
Authors of this paper use a real-time routing experiment platform to conduct attack experiments on a national-level interdomain routing system. The real-time routing experiment platform integrates open-source router software, real-time network simulation, and light-weight machine virtualization technologies, and is capable of supporting realistic large-scale routing experiments. Authors conduct a series of experiments on this real-time routing experiment platform to study the consequence of intentionally propagating false routing information on interdomain routing and the effectiveness of corresponding defensive measures. The example is a network model consisting of major autonomous systems connecting Swedish Internet users with realistic routing configurations derived from the routing registry.
