Real-Time Security Exercises on a Realistic Interdomain Routing Experiment Platform
Source: Florida International University
The authors use a realistic interdomain routing experiment platform to conduct real-time attack and defense exercises for training purposes. The interdomain 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. The network model used consists of major autonomous systems connecting Swedish Internet users with realistic routing configurations derived from the routing registry. They conduct a series of real-time security exercises on this routing system to study the consequence of intentionally propagating false routing information on interdomain routing and the effectiveness of corresponding defensive measures.
