Modular Platform for Customer-Side Detection of BGP Redirection Attacks

Marco Silva, António Nogueira, Paulo Salvador

Abstract

Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) enables world-wide Internet connectivity and its inherent non-secure characteristics, together with the nonexistence of a trustable identity that correlates IP network prefixes with the Autonomous Systems (AS) allowed to announce them, opens the way to attacks or misconfiguration on a world-wide scale. Since corporate customers do not have access to the whole routing information used by Internet Service Providers (ISP), they can not act against these kind of attacks and must only rely on the ISP to promptly detect and take measures to mitigate them. This paper presents a world-wide distributed probing platform, with a simple and very low cost implementation, that can be used to detect traffic routing variations. Upon detection, the corporate customer can locally deploy security policies while notifying its network service provider(s) and requesting for further actions.
