At the present time, attacks against routing infrastructure are gaining an impressive importance. Currently an approach to network security and reliability must take into account the effects of routing protocols attacks and techniques for network infrastructure protection. This work presents an experimental analysis of three well know attacks against routing protocols: route flapping on RIP, denial of service on OSPF (max age attack) and finally route forcing on RIP. We also present this last attack in a rudimental traffic engineering mechanism.
