Abstract: The Internet\'s interdomain routing protocol, BGP, is vulnerable to a number of potentially crippling attacks. Many promising cryptography-based solutions have been proposed, but none have been embraced by the necessary communities to garner significant adoption. This is largely due to the difficulty of developing and maintaining the necessary PKI infrastructure and changes to the BGP protocol that the proposed solutions require. Alternative solutions such as anomaly detectors have been unable to provide the same level of security as the cryptographic mechanisms.

In this presentation we describe an anomaly detector and response mechanism capable of automatically stopping the propagation of invalid path attacks, a difficult class of attacks to detect. Our solution provides comparable security to the cryptographic methods and could be readily deployed with a simple software upgrade in participating networks.
