Abstract

BGP peering session attacks are known to drive routes into route flap damping (RFD) suppression states and thus cause isolations between autonomous systems (ASes) and destinations. We present a detailed study of the impact of BGP peering session attacks and the resulting exploitation of RFD that cause network-wide routing disruptions. Analytical results provide insights into the nature of the problem and impact of the attacks. Detailed simulation results using SSFNet BGP framework complement the analytical results and provide many useful insights.
