This presentation explains how Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) works and how it can be hijacked for various purposes – with real-life examples.
Border Gateway Protocol is the address book of the internet. It provides a network-by-network set of directions on how to get to any IP address. But BGP can be disrupted by malicious actors – they advertise invalid routes to disrupt traffic and re-direct it around the internet for the benefit of the hackers.
See a software model to visually illustrate how BGP hijacking propagates through the internet, learn how the disruption can be accelerated by utilising botnets, and discover how well-prepared we are to deal with this type of attack.
