"Resilience of the Internet Interconnection Ecosystem"

This blog post by Richard Clayton is worth reading.

If you have more time, there's 238-page report and a 31-page executive summary.

I did down load that and another report a little while ago, however I must admit I have only skim read them so far...

However unlike the current crop of US "China APT" FUD merchants, the ENISA reports generaly contain valuable information for network architecture, admin and technical staff, without throwing their hands in the air with cries of "think of the children" or it's equivalent ;)

Any paper carrying the ENISA stamp and the name of Ross Anderson is well-worth a read in full.

Thanks for the link. Any network engineers out there would this be possible.

Target sou->as1->as2->as3->as4->as5->as6->target->skip1->skip2->target dest

if
target->as6->target source
as5->as4->target source
as4->as3->target source
as3->as2->target source
as2->as1->target source

would that stop any traffic to target dest that joins the chain before target get sent to target source. If a exploit was found for routers were you could update the table by one packet

At the risk of trolling, it is interesting that this post has only attracted a handful of comments....

@asd - sorry, I am not enough of a network engineer to begin to answer.

If resilience is a state of being, something you are, how can you measure it?

If resilience is not a state, then it is something else that is measurable; thus it cannot be resilience!

As a result, resilience is a buzzword!
