Modeling the BGP routing protocol
2002 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The Border Gateway Protocol version 4 (BGP) is the standard inter-domain routing protocol used in the Internet today. In order to find and resolve flaws in BGP's behavior, there is a need to analyze its operation. Simulation is a powerful tool for analyzing routing protocols. This thesis describes the design and implementation of RouteSim, a discrete-event system simulator that includes a model of BGP. In order to keep the model simple and make it possible to perform large-scale simulations, the model's abstraction level is high. Underlying mechanisms, such as the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), are not included in the model. The simulator has been used to perform experiments on BGP's convergence properties. Specifically, properties of the route bouncing problem have been analyzed.
