This document defines extensions to BGP-4 to enable the exchange of information about detected malicious traffic (e.g., Distributed Denial of Service Attacks) and provide options for coordinated, collaborative responses to mitigate such traffic. The extensions are backward compatible - a BGP speaker that supports the extensions can interoperate with speakers that do not support the extensions.
