The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the Internet's inter-domain routing protocol. One of the major concerns related to BGP is its lack of effective security measures, and as a result the routing infrastructure of the Internet is vulnerable to various forms of attack. This paper examines the Internet's routing architecture and the design of BGP in particular, and surveys the work to date on securing BGP. To date no proposal has been seen as offering a combination of adequate security functions, suitable performance overheads and deployable support infrastructure. Some open questions on the next steps in the study of BGP security are posed.
