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.
