Secure Border Gateway Protocol (S-BGP) - Real World Performance and Deployment Issues
The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), which is used to distribute routing information between autonomous systems, is an important component of the Internet's routing infrastructure. Secure BGP (S-BGP) addresses critical BGP vulnerabilities by providing a scalable means of verifying the authenticity and authorization of BGP control traffic. To facilitate widespread adoption, S-BGP must avoid introducing undue overhead (processing, bandwidth, storage) and must be incrementally deployable, i.e., interoperable with BGP. To provide a proof of concept demonstration, the authors developed a prototype implementation of S-BGP and deployed it in DARPA's CAIRN testbed.
