SRx is an open source reference implementation and research platform for investigating emerging BGP security extensions and supporting protocols such as RPKI Origin Validation and BGPSec Path Validation.
The current release includes:
For those wanting an easy way to experiment with BGP-SRx, we provide the BRITE system (See Test and Debug section below). For more information see out video about Quagga SRx and BRITE.
BGP-SRx has three parts:
BGP-SRx is designed in such to minimize the dependencies on and the impact to specific router implementations. As a result much functionality is provided by the stand alone SRx server module. The prototype is also designed to support experimentation with various deployment architectures. As a result the SRx module can run on the router, the validating cache, or on a complete separate platform.
Test and Debug
You can use BRITE to run BGP-SRx (or any other implementation) through a series of test scripts that exercise numerous interesting scenarios for BGP ROA processing under different policy assumptions.
To facilitate test and evaluation of BGP-SRx (or any other BGP secutiry implementation) we have developed the BRITE (BGPSEC / RPKI Interoperability Test & Evaluation) system. Brite is available at http://brite.antd.nist.gov/
You can use the BRITE on-line test system to put BGP-SRx (or any other implementation) through a series of test scripts that exercise numerous interesting scenarios for BGP ROA processing under different policy assumptions.
QuaggaSRx - BGPSec Path Validation
Within the previous version, all crypto processing was performed by QuaggaSRx using the SRxCryptoAPI
The current implementation still needs work. We updated the code to use the IANA assigned values for capability and BGPsec_PATH attribute. To be backwards compatible with other implementations if is possilbe to pass other values during the configuration stage to QuaggaSRx and BGPSEC-IP. Please see the ChangeLog for more informationon that.
Router diagnostic commands have been extended to display basic BGPSEC information, such as:
