    Internet routing table size growth and BGP update churn are two prominent Internet scaling issues. There is widespread belief in a high and fast growing number of ASs that deaggregate prefixes, e.g., due to multi-homing and for the purpose of traffic engineering. Moreover, researchers often blame specific classes of ASs for generating a disproportionate amount of BGP updates. Our primary objective... View full abstract»

    The scalability of BGP routing is a major concern for the Internet community. Scalability is an issue in two different aspects: increasing routing table size, and increasing rate of BGP updates. In this paper, we focus on the latter. Our objective is to characterize the churn increase experienced by ASes in different levels of the Internet hierarchy as the network grows. We look at several "what-i... View full abstract»

    The Internet and its associated global routing table continues to grow with time. Will the current routing infrastructure be able to scale itself to sustain such growth? Over the past several years, many efforts have been devoted to address this important question. This paper presents a unique view from a network operator's perspective. We first clarify the definition of the routing scaling proble... View full abstract»

  • A Technique for Reducing BGP Update Announcements through Path Exploration Damping

    This paper defines and evaluates Path Exploration Damping (PED) - a router-level mechanism for reducing the volume of propagation of likely transient update messages within a BGP network and decreasing average time to restore reachability compared to current BGP Update damping practices. PED selectively delays and suppresses the propagation of BGP updates that either lengthen an existing AS Path o... View full abstract»

  • Rate Limiting in an Event-Driven BGP Speaker

    Implementing BGP route processing in an event-driven manner appears to be advantageous in terms of scalability. However, the inter-domain routing system as a whole would be overwhelmed without some type of rate limiting on BGP update streams. At first glace, an event-driven, pipelined route processing model does not seem to fit well with the traditional timer-based way of implementing BGP rate-lim... View full abstract»

  • BGP Add-Paths: The Scaling/Performance Tradeoffs

    Internet Service Providers design their network with resiliency in mind, having multiple paths towards external IP subnets available at the borders of their network. However, with the current internal Border Gateway Protocol, BGP routers and route reflectors only propagate their (unique) best path over their iBGP sessions. As a result, at the BGP router level, path diversity tends to be poor. Such... View full abstract»

  • Keychain-Based Signatures for Securing BGP

    As a major component of Internet routing infrastructure, the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is vulnerable to malicious attacks. While Secure BGP (S-BGP) provides a comprehensive framework to secure BGP, its high computational cost and low incremental deployment benefits seriously impede its wide usage in practice. Using a lightweight symmetric signature scheme, SPV is much faster than S-BGP. Howeve... View full abstract»

    Challenges face the Internet Architecture in order to scale to a greater number of users while providing a suite of increasingly essential functionality, such as multi-homing, traffic engineering, mobility, localised addressing and end-to-end packet-level security. Such functions have been designed and implemented mainly in isolation and retrofitted to the original Internet architecture. The resul... View full abstract»

  • FIRMS: A Mapping System for Future Internet Routing

    The locator/identifier split is a design principle for new routing architectures that make Internet routing more scalable. To find the location of a host, it requires a mapping system that returns appropriate locators in response to map-requests for specific identifiers. In this paper, we propose FIRMS, a "Future Internet Routing Mapping System". It is fast, scalable, reliable, secure, and it is a... View full abstract»

    During the last years, some operators have expressed concerns about the continued growth of the BGP routing tables in the default-free zone. Several proposed solutions for this issue are centered around the idea of separating the network node's identifier from its topological location. Among the existing proposals, the Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) has seen important development and implem... View full abstract»

    Internet routing tables have been growing rapidly due to factors such as edge-site multihoming, traffic engineering, and disjoint address allocations. To address the routing scalability problems caused by this rapid growth, we propose an evolutionary approach that is incrementally deployable and provides immediate benefits to any adopting ASes. The basic premise of the approach is that route aggre... View full abstract»
