Routing Security

  1. 1. Routing Security Daniel KarrenbergRIPE NCC<daniel.karrenberg@ripe.net>
  2. 2. Who is talking: Daniel Karrenberg• 1980s: helped build Internet in Europe - EUnet, Ebone, IXes, ... - RIPE• 1990s: helped build RIPE NCC - 1st CEO: 1992-2000• 2000s: Chief Scientist & Public Service - Trustee of the Internet Society: IETF, ... - Interests: Internet measurements, stability, trust & identity in the Internet, ... 2
  3. 3. Who is talking: Daniel Karrenberg• RIPE NCC - started in 1992 - first Regional Internet Registry (RIR) - Association of 7000+ ISPs - 70+ countries in “Europe & surrounding areas” - operational coordination - number resource distribution - trusted source of data - Motto: Neutrality & Expertise - not a lobby group! 3
  4. 4. My Messages Today• Routing security needs to be improved• The sky is not falling• Industry is moving 4
  5. 5. Outline• Internet Routing - How it works - What makes it work in practice - What can go wrong today• Risk Mitigation - Routing Hygiene - Resource certification & checks - Obstacles• Public Policy Considerations• Discussion 5

  16. 16. Transmission Paths 16
  17. 17. Routing Engineering 17
  18. 18. Routing Engineering Methods• Inbound Traffic - Selectively announce routes. - Very little control over preferences by other ASes.• Outbound Traffic - Decide which of the known routes to use.• Inputs - Cost - Transmission Capacity - Load - Routing State 18
  19. 19. Routing Engineering Principles• Autonomous Decisions by each AS• Local tools• Local strategies• Local knowlege• Business advantages• Autonomous Decisions by each AS• (One of the reasons for rapid growth of the Internet) 19
  20. 20. Questions?
  21. 21. What can go wrong• Misconfiguration - Announcing too many routes (unitentional transit) - Originating wrong routes• Malicious Actions - Originating wrong routes (hijacking) 21

  25. 25. Questions?
  26. 26. Examples• YouTube & Pakistan Telecom (2008)• A number of full table exports• Various route leaks from China (2010) YouTube Movie 26
  27. 27. Outline• Internet Routing - How it works - What makes it work in practice - What can go wrong today• Risk Mitigation - Routing Hygiene - Resource certification & checks - Obstacles• Public Policy Considerations• Discussion 27
  28. 28. Routing Hygiene• Do not accept customer routes from peers or upstreams• Limit number of prefixes accepted per adjacent AS• Use a routing registry - no global authoritative registry exists• Use own knowledge about topology - topology is constantly changing - distruptions can cause drastic changes 28
  29. 29. Routing Hygiene• Is applied locally / autonomously• Has a cost• Subservient to routing engineering - No obstruction - Maintain Autonomy• Cooperation - Trust - Community - Personal Relations 29
  30. 30. Resource Certification - Motivation• Good practice: - to register routes in an IRR - to filter routes based on IRR data• Problem: - only useful if the registries are complete - many IRRs exist, lacking standardisation• Result: - Less than half of all prefixes is registered in an IRR - Real world filtering is difficult and limited - Accidental leaks happen, route hijacking is possible 30
  31. 31. Resource Certification – Definition “Resource certification is a reliable method for proving the association between resource holders and Internet resources.” 31
  32. 32. Digital Resource Certificates• Based on open IETF standards (sidr)• Issued by the RIPE NCC• The certificate states that an Internet number resource has been registered by the RIPE NCC• The certificate does not give any indication of the identity of the holder• All further information on the resource can be found in the registry 32
  33. 33. What Certification offers• Proof of holdership• Secure Inter-Domain Routing - Route Origin Authorisation - Preferred certified routing• Resource transfers• Validation is the added value! 33
  34. 34. Proof of holdership • Public Key • Resources • Signature 34
  35. 35. Route Origin Authorisation (ROA) • IP Prefixes • AS Numbers • Signature 35
  36. 36. Automated Provisioning using ROAs Please route this part of my network: 192.0.2.0/24 Please sign a ROA for that resource using my AS number OK, I signed and published a ROA OK, that ROA is valid. I can trust this request 36
  37. 37. Who Controls Routing?• Certificates do not create additional powers for the Regional Internet Registries• Certificates reflect the resource registration status - no registration → no certificate - the reverse is not true!• Routing decisions are made by network operators! 37
  38. 38. All five Regional Internet Registries will launch production system on 1 January 2011 38
  39. 39. Obstacles• Fear of loosing autonomy• Cost• Low threat perception• Fear of loosing business advantage• Fear of loosing autonomy 39
  40. 40. Questions?
  41. 41. Outline• Internet Routing - How it works - What makes it work in practice - What can go wrong today• Risk Mitigation - Routing Hygiene - Resource certification & checks - Obstacles• Public Policy Considerations• Discussion 41
  42. 42. My Messages Today• Routing security needs to be improved - Accidents do happen ... sometimes - Hijackings do happen ... sometimes• The sky is not falling - It does not happen all the time - It does not affect large areas of the Internet 42
  43. 43. My Messages Today• Industryis addressing the problems - Local measures taken autonomously - RPKI being deployed by RIRs - RPKI based routing tools being developed - RPKI based routing protocols being studied in IETF 43
  44. 44. My Messages Today• No need for public policies at this point - Not a strucutral problem endangering Internet - Mitigation works - Mitigation being improved - Global coordination is working 44
  45. 45. Outline• Internet Routing - How it works - What makes it work in practice - What can go wrong today• Risk Mitigation - Routing Hygiene - Resource certification & checks - Obstacles• Public Policy Considerations• Discussion 45
