The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a crucial component of the internet routing process, and its security is essential to the integrity of the internet. An industry leader in computer networking, Juniper Networks is very invested in ensuring the trust in and health of the internet. Our team aims to investigate the weaknesses of BGP and the barriers that have prevented the widespread adoption of the security measure BGP-sec, like computational cost and lack of peer adoption.
