A Simple BGP
A Simple BGP is initiative of Radar by Qrator team which aims to simplify the process of BGP configuration and avoid route leaks by adding built-in protection against route leaks in BGP.
Route leak is a network anomaly, when route learned from provider or peer is announced to another provider or peer. The effect of such issues could vary from increased network delays for victim (originator of prefix) to DoS for both victim and leaker. According to our research main reason of these routing issues are mistakes in BGP configuration. You could find more details about proposed BGP extension on our website. We have already implemented this extension as a fork of BIRD routing daemon. You could download it from GitHub under GNU public license. This implementation has full backward compatibility with "classic" BGP, so you are welcome to use it now and be sure that you will have no route leaks inside your network.
We have also finished big inner work with our AS relation model and architecture reconfiguration. The result of these changes should make data accurate and we now are quite near to start providing real time service. The weekly reports will be back at next Monday.
We are waiting for your comments, feedbacks and suggestions! You could also catch us in person during this week at RIPE meeting.
