Can new routing security method make the Internet more reliable?


Computer scientists are at work on an advanced networking security method that could make malicious "route hijacking" -- in which a company or individual's traffic is diverted from its path and intercepted -- a thing of the past. Engineers are working to find a more secure and reliable way to help networks verify the authenticity of IP addresses under the Border Gateway Protocol. Alternative security methods for the protocol, such as Route Origin Verification, are being reviewed by the Internet Engineering Task Force.
