The current Internet backbone is quite vulnerable against threats. Intended attacks as well as misconfigurations lead to disturbances on the BGP layer. Current efforts of the Secure-Inter Domain (SIDR) working group within the IETF lie in the standardization of protocols to enhance the security of BGP, taking practical deployability into consideration. They focus on solving two problems: enable a router (a) to verify that a BGP update did originate at an authorized AS and (b) to verify that the AS path within the BGP update corresponds to the route traversed. Even though path validation is far from global deployment, deployment of the solution for prefix origin validation is growing.
To promote a more robust Internet backbone, we offer two events: The RPKI Tutorial (half-day, language German) and the RPKI Deployment Strategies Workshop (full-day, language English). You can participate in either or both.
