Re: BGP-based blackholing/hijacking patented in Australia?
sorry cant find a really good link, this is what BT have been doing in the UK for a couple months: http://msnbc.msn.com/id/5158457/ In answer to the critics, what an ISP chooses to do with its traffic *internally* is up to the ISP, and bear in mind you are not suggesting the scope of the service is anything more than an ISPs own network. This is not IP hijacking by any means, more like transparent caching and blacklisting.
