Securing BGP using blockchain technology

Detta är en Master-uppsats från KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

Sammanfattning: The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is an important routing protocol used to exchangerouting information among autonomous systems on the Internet. The BGP version 4 doesnot include specific protection mechanisms against attacks or deliberate errors that couldcause disruptions of routing behavior. There were several securing solutions developedto mitigate security issues of BGP. In this thesis, current secure solutions are reviewedand evaluated against a list of security and deployment requirements. Furthermore, a newBGP securing solution is proposed which uses blockchain technology and smart contractsto exchange information required for messages validation among peers. This allows todecouple security-related data from the protocol itself and fix the problems introduced inother BGP solutions.
