Abstract

Routing infrastructures are possibly the most vital, complex, and fragile components in the global information infrastructure. They are also the least protected from attack. In the public Internet, for example, the IP routing infrastructure comprises tens of thousands of individual routing domains, each employing numerous distinct protocols and technologies that operate as a loosely hierarchical but interdependent global distributed system. In this article, we look at the current state of, and practical prospects for, security in IP routing infrastructures.
