    The Internet has quickly evolved into a vast global network owned and operated by thousands of different administrative entities. During this time, it became apparent that vanilla shortest path routing would be insufficient to handle the myriad operational, economic, and political factors involved in routing. ISPs began to modify routing configurations to support routing policies - goals held by t... View full abstract»

    Today, the complexity of ISPs' networks make it difficult to investigate the implications of internal or external changes on the distribution of traffic across their network. In this article we explain the complexity of building models of large ISPs' networks. We describe the various aspects important to understanding the routing inside an AS. We present an open source routing solver, C-BGP, that ... View full abstract»

    In this article we investigate a model of route selection for interdomain traffic engineering where routing to multiple destinations can be coordinated. We identify potential routing instability and inefficiency problems, and derive a set of practical guidelines to guarantee stability without global coordination. Using a realistic Internet topology, we show that route oscillations can happen even ... View full abstract»

    The Internet is a collection of multiple interconnected and self-administered domains known as autonomous systems. In order to find a path from one autonomous system to any other autonomous system, neighboring autonomous systems exchange routing information via the border gateway protocol. However, BGP suffers from several types of divergence anomalies. A divergence anomaly occurs when BGP routers... View full abstract»

    The border gateway protocol, the interdomain routing protocol for the Internet, allows for a wide variety of routing policies that may interact in unintended and unstable ways. Recent work on BGP and related protocols has begun to incorporate formal protocol models, which have enabled rigorous descriptive analyses of BGP. More recently, such models have been used to give prescriptive guidelines fo... View full abstract»

    The border gateway protocol possesses security vulnerabilities, because speakers can lie. Proposed security protocols can address the vulnerabilities, but can significantly increase the performance overheads, which prevent their real-world deployment. Public key cryptography can address these vulnerabilities. We report our research into analyzing recently proposed security protocols and building s... View full abstract»

    This article surveys several research challenges in interdomain routing. We introduce and describe these challenges in a comprehensible manner, along with a review of the most compelling contributions and ongoing research efforts addressing each of the exposed issues. During this analysis we identify the relation between these research challenges and now they influence each other. We also present ... View full abstract»
