Securing BGP Basics

To understand the basics of how to secure your usage of the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), we encourage you to start with these resources:

You may also want to read through the various reports available about securing BGP and explore the work happening in the IETF within the Secure Inter-Domain Routing (SIDR) working group.

We will soon provide links to additional tutorials and content as we build out our content roadmap for securing BGP.

For background information on the Border Gateway Protocol itself, you may want to read RFC 4271 that defines BGP.

Do you know of additional resources we should consider adding here? If so, please let us know.
