Summary

And while the company can't fix the problem directly, it can call out those that are slow to contribute defenses."BGP is one of these really frustrating areas that we can’t solve ourselves."Matthew Prince, CloudflareOn Friday, the company launched Is BGP Safe Yet​, a site that makes it easier for anyone to check whether their internet service provider has added the security protections and filters that can make BGP more stable. And while Cloudflare says it doesn't seem like the Rostelecom incident was intentional or malicious, Russian telecoms do have a history of suspicious BGP meddling, and similar problems will keep cropping up until the whole industry is on board."With that last big route leak from a few weeks ago out of Russia, it was a point at which our engineering team said enough is enough, it’s time for us to start naming and shaming the companies who aren’t doing this right," says Cloudflare CEO Matthew Prince. So BGP is one of these really frustrating areas that we can’t solve ourselves."BGP is like a GPS mapping service for the internet, enabling ISPs to automatically choose what route data should take over the internet's vast landscape of networks.
