4byte As Number Migration Suggestion

  1. 1. 11th TWNIC IP Open Policy Meeting 2008/11/12, Taipei 4-Byte AS Number Migration Suggestion
  2. 2. Agenda • Quickly Recap • Assumptions before implementation • Common BGP deployments • 4-byte AS number implementation • Operational issues • Summary 2008/11/12, Taipei 2
  3. 3. Quickly Recap • Changes in BGP 4-byte AS: – New BGP capability advertisement • Capability code: 65 • Capability length: 4 – Attribute update • AS_PATH attribute carry 4 byte AS • AGGREGATOR attribute carry 4 byte AS – New attribute • Add AS4_PATH attribute – optional, transitive – Construct from AS_PATH attribute by 4-byte AS enabled router when face to 2- byte AS only router • Add AS4_AGGREGATOR attribute – optional, transitive – Construct from AGGREGATOR attribute by 4-byte AS enabled router when face to 2-byte AS only router 2008/11/12, Taipei 3
  4. 4. Quickly Recap • Limitations: – NEW BGP speaker need a 2 byte AS to peer with the OLD BGP speaker. • No-mappable 4 byte AS can use “23456” as 2 byte AS – AS4_PATH is not compatible with: • AS_CONFED_SEQUENCE • AS_CONFED_SET • Must use mappable 4 byte member ASN during the migration – i.e. 0.64512 ~ 0.65535 • Other considerations – BGP community handling • Current AS encoding method in BGP community should be updated • ref: draft-rekhter-as4octet-ext-community-03.txt – Netflow statistics • Netflow version 9 support 4-byte AS number 2008/11/12, Taipei 4

  11. 11. Assumptions before implementation • Everyone (uplink ISP, peering ISP, transit customers and yourself) – enable BGP – has at least one 2 bytes ASN before 2 byte ASN exhausting • Following common BGP deployments are considered: – Only border routers enable BGP – All routers enable BGP and full-mesh with each other – All routers enable BGP and implement Route-Reflector – All routers enable BGP with BGP confederation – There are more than one AS in the same ISP domain 2008/11/12, Taipei 11

  17. 17. 4-byte AS number implementation border Route-Reflector iBGP client eBGP iBGP iBGP 2-byte 2-byte 2-byte 2-byte 2-byte 2-byte 2-byte 2-byte • What we have to do? – Arrange a perfect plan first – Upgrade the router operating system (ROS) then • What is the safe implementation approach? – from border router? – from Route-Reflector? • Route-Reflector is so important, it seems not a good choice to upgrade Route-Reflector first – from iBGP client? 2008/11/12, Taipei 17

  30. 30. Summary • It is fine to upgrade ROS no matter – from border router, iBGP client then Route-Reflector – from iBGP client, border router then Route-Reflector • Thank you • But….. Are they still good approaches when consider operational issues? 2008/11/12, Taipei 30
  31. 31. Operational issues • AS-PATH issues on border router – AS-PATH is a very important attribute for BGP policy design • Allow or deny BGP routes • Set local preference • Set BGP community – If the border router did not support 4-byte AS number, we can NOT handle 4-byte AS BGP routes by AS-PATH attribute • Can NOT permit/deny BGP routes by AS path information – Old ROS can not recognize AS4_PATH attribute either • Can NOT set BGP local preference on border router by AS path information • Can NOT set BGP community on border router by AS path information 2008/11/12, Taipei 31
  32. 32. Operational issues • Upgrade Router Operating System issues – It is not a easy work • Heavy loading in testing the new ROS • Much different from patch/upgrade personal computer OS – Upgrade ROS then reboot router impact the network and SLA • Especially in those network environments without appropriate redundant design • Higher SLA requirement is a challenge: 99.99% even 99.999% – With a serious, detail plan, upgrade all router ROS will spend many months even more than one year. • Upgrade processes are risky • Any un-conditional network event will postpone the scheduled upgrade process – Upgrade ROS guide in operation: • DON’T TOUCH YOUR ROS UNLESS YOU HAVE TO!!!!! 2008/11/12, Taipei 32
  33. 33. Summary • If we want to consider the operational issues, to upgrade border router ROS first is a better approach – The AS-PATH handling will not be a problem anymore – It is fine to upgrade border router only • Old BGP router will NOT be confused by duplicate AS23456 • We can reboot the router for serious ROS bug-fix patch only rather than just 4-byte AS upgrade – After the border router, the upgrade sequence could be considered by • (option) other eBGP router in the same autonomous domain • (option) CONFED border router • (option) iBGP client • (option) Route-Reflector 2008/11/12, Taipei 33
