Global Looking Glass aka Realtime Graph
Our team is pleased to announce the launch of the completely new BGP graph. Compared to the previous version, it has a number of significant improvements and new features. First and most important, the new graph shows BGP announces at the current moment, and all changes are now updated in real time. We worked much on design and readability in order to present even complicated situations as simple as possible. You can now explicitly specify the list of autonomous systems for which you are interested in chosen BGP paths. So now you can use Radar graph as global looking glass. Please check all the new features by choosing "Graph" item in the left-side menu.
You could also improve the quality of our data by establishing BGP multihop session with our reflector.
Major Update of Security Detectors
Our team is pleased to announce the launch of the new engine for detecting route loops. The results have proved to be very interesting. Every day we detect several thousands of BGP dynamic loops and millions of static loops. Many of them affect links between ASes and can be used for amplification in DDoS attacks.
We also updated our MOAS conflict detector: now it shows not only conflicts for equal prefixes but also for more and less specific prefixes.
Next, we added several new types of monitored DDoS amplifiers. Now we are detecting amplification vulnerabilities in 10 various protocols: ICMP, DNS, NTP, SNMP, SSDP, CHARGEN, QOTD, NETBIOS, RIPv1, and PORTMAP.
Finally, we added support for IPv6 routes in our BGP reflector. If you have IPv6 routes, you can send them to us via the existing IPv4 session. It will help Radar to improve the detection of your IPv6 peerings and connectivity, and will be required for some IPv6 tools added in future releases.
