Technical Summary Existing IAB work recommends the tightening of the security of the core routing infrastructure. This document provides a threat analysis for attacks against routing protocols' transports and the then enumerates the requirements for addressing the described threats. It is intended to be used by KARP design teams in their analysis of routing protocols, and will generally be useful in the analysis of routing protocols. Working Group Summary The working group support publication of this document as an informational document. Document Quality This informational document does not specify a protocol or other semantics that can be directly implemented, thus there are no machine implementations. However, in terms of quality it has been reviewed by a number of security experts. Personnel Brian Weis (email@example.com) is the Document Shepherd for this document. Stewart Bryant (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the Responsible Area Director.
