Inter-domain Routing in the Internet: Thinking about replacements for BGP

Mark Handley

University of College, London

BGP, the current inter-domain routing protocol, is known to suffer from a number of pressing problems that render the Internet infrastructure vulnerable to attack, and threaten to impede future Internet growth. In this talk I'll discuss the problem of inter-domain policy routing, and why BGP ended up the way it did in its efforts to preserve secrecy of policy. In reality though, it turns out that BGP fails to hide many policies. I will examine how this not-so-secret policy information can be used explicitly by a possible replacement for BGP, and how this leads us to a specific hybrid design for a new inter-domain routing protocol.
