A Defensive Technique for Prefix Hijacking Attack Based on Route Reliability for BGP
In internet, prefix hijacking is the type of network attack that can give malicious parties access to untraceable IP addresses. To defend against Prefix Hijacking Attack which is a category of path validation in Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the authors propose to design a defensive technique which consists of route reliability testing algorithm. To authenticate the validation of a routing update, the algorithm is based on the common facts of the Autonomous Systems (AS's) in the network. In addition to route reliability testing, they also provide an incentive based route selection mechanism to identify the suspicious candidates and avoid routes propagated by them.
