Advanced tool to detect network threats
The constant, effective and safe routing of data is essential to secure integral functionality of the internet. The exchange of information is facilitated by the border gateway protocol (BGP) that manages the routing of data. However, BGP does not eliminate threats of hijacking attacks – be it hackers or a misconfiguration permitting the spread of fraudulent or false information to the BGP routers of other networks. The effectiveness of existing protective services is limited and insufficient. The EU-funded RAVEN project proposes an advanced tool that detects threats for networks and consequently counters and reduces these attacks. The project will develop a proof of concept for a BGP hijacking vulnerability assessment service using accurate simulations and realistic emulations.
