Let the Market Drive Deployment: A Strategy for Transitioning to BGP Security

Computer Science 402

With a cryptographic root-of-trust for Internet routing (RPKI) on the
horizon, we can finally start planning the deployment of one of the
secure interdomain routing protocols proposed over a decade ago
(Secure BGP, secure origin BGP). However, if experience with IPv6 is
any indicator, this will be no easy task. Security concerns alone seem
unlikely to provide sufficient local incentive to drive the deployment
process forward. Worse yet, the security benefits provided by the
S*BGP protocols do not even kick in until a large number of ASes have
deployed them.

Instead, we appeal to ISPs' interest in increasing revenue-generating
traffic. We propose a strategy that governments and industry groups
can use to harness ISPs' local business objectives and drive global
S*BGP deployment. We evaluate our deployment strategy using
theoretical analysis and large-scale simulations on empirical data.
Our results give evidence that the market dynamics created by our
proposal can transition the majority of the Internet to S*BGP.

Joint work with Sharon Goldberg and Michael Schapira
