Seminar: Securing Internet Applications from Routing Attacks

Abstract: Attacks on Internet routing are typically viewed through the lens of availability and confidentiality, assuming an adversary that either discards traffic or performs eavesdropping. Yet, a strategic adversary can use routing attacks to compromise the security of critical Internet applications like Tor, certificate authorities, and the bitcoin network. The talk willdescribe such application-specific routing attacks and demonstrate that both application-layer and network-layer defenses are essential and urgently needed. While application-layer defenses are easier to deploy in the short term, we hope to motivate the community to redouble efforts on secure routing solutions and tackle Border Gateway Protocol'smany security problems once and for all.
