Title: Is the Juice Worth the Squeeze?  BGP Security in Partial Deployment

Presenter: Robert Lychev

As the roll-out of route origin authentication (using the RPKI) slowly  
gains traction among network operators, there is a big push to standardize  
a security-enhanced variant of BGP (S*BGP: S-BGP, soBGP, BGPsec, etc.).   
The transition to S*BGP is expected to be long and slow, with S*BGP  
coexisting in “partial deployment” alongside BGP for a long time, possibly  
forever.  As such, we use theoretical and experimental analyses to study  
the security benefits provided by partially-deployed S*BGP, vis-a-vis those  
already provided by route origin authentication.  We find that the  
improvement in security is disappointingly meager, even when a large  
fraction of the Internet has already transitioned to S*BGP.  We also show  
how the complex interactions between S*BGP and BGP can introduce new  
vulnerabilities and instabilities into the interdomain routing system.   
Given the high (political and operational) costs associated with S*BGP  
deployment, our findings cast doubt about the value of deploying S*BGP on  
top of origin authentication.
