1 BGP Border Gateway Protocol (an introduction) dr. C. P. J. Koymans Informatics Institute University of Amsterdam March 11, 2008 General ideas behind BGP Background Providers, Customers and Peers External and Internal BGP BGP information bases The BGP protocol BGP attributes BGP packets Traffic Engineering Outbound Traffic Engineering Inbound Traffic Engineering IBGP scaling BGP version 4 Autonomous system (AS) Border Gateway Protocol version 4 (BGP4) is specified in RFC 4271 is an inter-as routing protocol monopolises the Internet uses path vector routing which is inbetween distance vector and link state uses (often non-coordinated) policy based routing An Autonomous System or AS is a connected group of networks and routers, representing some assigned set of IP prefixes, having a single, consistent routing policy, both internally and externally which is a nuisance for convergence

3 Providers, Customers and Peers Customers and Providers Providers, Customers and Peers The Peering Relationship IP traffic Customer pays for access to the Internet traffic allowed traffic NOT allowed Peers provide transit between their respective s Peers do not provide transit between s Peers (often) do not exchange $$$ Providers, Customers and Peers Peering Provides Shortcuts Providers, Customers and Peers AS Graph!= Internet Topology BGP was designed to throw away information! Peering also allows connectivity between the s of Tier 1 s. The AS graph may look like this. Reality may be closer to this

4 Providers, Customers and Peers Treatment Providers, Customers and Peers: Import and Export The order of preference for a route is Import Routes Customers have highest preference route route route ISP route Peers have the next highest preference Providers have the lowest preference From From Transit relationships are enforced by export filtering Do not advertise or routes From From to other s or s Do advertise all routes to cutomers Do advertise routes to s and s From From Providers, Customers and Peers: Import and Export EBGP and IBGP (1) Export Routes External BGP (EBGP) route route route ISP route is used for BGP neighbors between different AS s To From to exchange prefixes and to implement policies Internal BGP (IBGP) To To is used for BGP neighbors within only one AS to distribute Internet prefixes across the backbone To To filters block in order to create a consistent view among all entry/exit points to originate local () prefixes

5 EBGP and IBGP (2) Routing Information Bases (RIBs) Routes imported from one IBGP are not distributed to another IBGP This prevents possible routing loops Adj-RIB-In (one per ) Routes after input filtering Loc-RIB (one globally) Loop detection is based on duplicates in AS paths, which is detected by EBGP between different AS s Routes after best path selection Adj-RIB-Out (one per ) Requires IBGP s to be configured as a full mesh Routes after output filtering BGP protocol Some important BGP attributes In order of path selection importance Uses TCP over port 179 Exchanges NLRI Network Layer Reachability Information Prefixes that can or can no longer be reached through the router Accompanied by BGP attributes LOCAL_PREF (Local Preference) AS_PATH ORIGIN MULTI_EXIT_DISC (MED; Multi-exit discriminator) And further... NEXT_HOP which must be reachable (directly or via IGP) except in the case of multi-hop BGP

6 Interaction betweed BGP and IGP BGP Next Hop Attribute Interaction betweed BGP and IGP Join EGP with IGP For Connectivity AS 6431 AT&T Research AS 7018 AT&T Next Hop = RIPE NCC RIS project Next Hop = Every time a route announcement crosses an AS boundary, the Next Hop attribute is changed to the IP address of the border router that announced the route Forwarding Table destination next hop /30 + EGP destination next hop Next Hop = /30 Forwarding Table destination next hop / Route selection Route Selection Summary Route selection BGP Route Processing Open ended programming. Constrained only by vendor configuration language Highest Local Preference Enforce relationships Receive BGP Updates Apply Policy = filter routes & tweak attributes Based on Attribute Values Best Routes Apply Policy = filter routes & tweak attributes Transmit BGP Updates Shortest ASPATH Lowest MED i-bgp < e-bgp Lowest IGP cost to BGP egress traffic engineering Apply Import Policies Best Route Selection Best Route Table Install forwarding Entries for best Routes. Apply Export Policies Lowest router ID Throw up hands and break ties IP Forwarding Table 52

7 BGP attribute types LOCAL_PREF (Local Preference) Well-known mandatory ORIGIN, AS_PATH, NEXT_HOP Well-known discretionary LOCAL_PREF, ATOMIC_AGGREGATE Optional transitive Advertised within a single AS (via IBGP) Used to implement local policies Can depend on any locally available information, possibly learned outside BGP COMMUNITIES, AGGREGATOR Default value is 100 Optional non-transitive MULTI_EXIT_DISC Highest value wins AS_PATH Examples of AS_PATHs ASPATH Attribute AS Path = Global Access Sequence of AS s (or sets of AS s) Used for loop detection Shortest path wins Prepend own AS (possibly multiple times) in EBGP updates Leave unchanged in IBGP updates AS Path = Sprint AS Path = 6341 AS 6341 AT&T Research Prefix Originated 755 Ebone AS Path = AS7018 AT&T AS Path = AS Path = RIPE NCC RIS project AS Path = AS 3549 Global Crossing 64

8 Examples of AS_PATHs Shorter Doesn t Always Mean Shorter Examples of AS_PATHs Interdomain Loop Prevention In fairness: could you do this right and still scale? Exporting internal state would dramatically increase global instability and amount of routing state AS 3 Mr. BGP says that path 4 1 is better than path Duh! AS 4 BGP at AS YYY will never accept a route with ASPATH containing YYY. AS 7018 Don t Accept! /16 ASPATH = Examples of AS_PATHs Traffic Often Follows ASPATH Examples of AS_PATHs But It Might Not AS 3 ASPATH = AS 4 ASPATH = /25 ASPATH = 5 filters all subnets with masks longer than /24 AS 3 ASPATH = AS 4 IP Packet Dest = AS /25 IP Packet Dest = From AS 4, it may look like this packet will take path 3 2 1, but it actually takes path 3 2 5

9 ORIGIN MULTI_EXIT_DISC (Multi-Exit Discriminator or MED) The MED (or metric, formerly INTER_AS_METRIC) is The ORIGIN attribute tells where the route (NLRI) originated Interior to the originating AS: ORIGIN = 0 Via the EGP protocol (historic): ORIGIN = 1 Via some other means: ORIGIN = 2 A lower ORIGIN wins meant to be advertised between neighboring AS s (via EBGP) Some implementations carry MED on by IBGP (hot potato versus cold potato) The MED is non-transitive (is not transferred into a third AS) A lower MED wins The default MED is 0 (lowest possible value) Some implementations choose the highest possible value BGP packet header BGP header fields BGP header fields Marker All 1 s (compatibility) Marker Length Total length no padding, including header Length Type Type 1: OPEN 2: UPDATE 3: NOTIFICATION 4: KEEPALIVE Remember that BGP packets are in fact part of a TCP-stream

10 BGP OPEN message OPEN message fields Version My Autonomous System Opt Parm Len Hold Time BGP Identifier Optional Parameters OPEN message fields Version 4 My Autonomous System Sender s AS Hold Time Liveness detection BGP Identifier Sender s identifying IP address Opt Parm Length Length of parameter field Optional Parameters TLV-encoded options (variable) One interesting parameter is the Capabilities Optional Parameter, which defines (among others) the Route Refresh Capability. BGP KEEPALIVE message KEEPALIVE message fields This page intentionally left blank. KEEPALIVE message fields :)

Depends on error code Depends on error code and subcode BGP UPDATE message UPDATE message fields Unfeasible Routes Length Total Path Attribute Length Withdrawn Routes (variable length) Path Attributes (variable length) Network Layer Reachability Information (variable length) UPDATE message fields Unfeasible Routes Length Length of Withdrawn Routes Withdrawn Routes List of prefixes 1 Total Path Attribute Length Length of Path Attributes Path Attributes TLV-encoded attributes Network Layer Reachability Information List of NLRI prefixes 1 A prefix is specified by its length and just enough bytes of the network IP address to cover this length

12 Tweaking your policies Outbound Traffic Engineering Tweak Tweak Tweak For inbound traffic Filter outbound routes Tweak attributes on outbound routes in the hope of influencing your neighbor s best route selection For outbound traffic Filter inbound routes Tweak attributes on inbound routes to influence best route selection inbound traffic outbound traffic outbound routes inbound routes This works by manipulating incoming routes Changing local preference Extending inbound AS paths Manipulating the metric (MED), for instance by using inbound communities It is relatively simple (and based on your own policy) In general, an AS has more control over outbound traffic Manipulating local preference Manipulating local preference So Many Choices LOCAL PREFERENCE AS 4 Local preference used ONLY in ibgp AS 4 local pref = 80 Frank s Internet Barn AS 3 local pref = 90 AS 3 local pref = 100 Which route should Frank pick to /16? /16 60 Higher Local preference values are more preferred /16 61

13 Manipulating local preference Implementing Backup Links with Local Preference (Outbound Traffic) Manipulating local preference Multihomed Backups (Outbound Traffic) AS 3 primary link backup link primary link backup link Set Local Pref = 100 for all routes from AS Set Local Pref = 50 for all routes from Forces outbound traffic to take primary link, unless link is down. We ll talk about inbound traffic soon 70 Set Local Pref = 100 for all routes from Set Local Pref = 50 for all routes from AS 3 Forces outbound traffic to take primary link, unless link is down. 71 Inbound Traffic Engineering This works by manipulating outgoing routes Extending outbound AS_PATHs is a traditional hack Manipulating the metric (MED) is the traditional way Setting outbound communities is the more modern approach, where agreements with your neighbors are specified Inbound is more complex than outbound Inbound depends on neighbor s policy Last resort method: announcing more specific routes (often a bad idea) Manipulating AS_PATHs Shedding Inbound Traffic with ASPATH Padding. Yes, this is a Glorious Hack ASPATH = 2 primary backup ASPATH = Padding will (usually) force inbound traffic from to take primary link 72

14 Manipulating AS_PATHs But Padding Does Not Always Work Manipulating AS_PATHs COMMUNITY Attribute to the Rescue! AS 3 AS 3 AS 3: normal local pref is 100, local pref is 90 ASPATH = 2 ASPATH = ASPATH = 2 ASPATH = 2 COMMUNITY = 3:70 primary backup AS 3 will send traffic on backup link because it prefers routes and local preference is considered before ASPATH length! Padding in this way is often used as a form of load 73 balancing primary backup Customer import policy at AS 3: If 3:90 in COMMUNITY then set local preference to 90 If 3:80 in COMMUNITY then set local preference to 80 If 3:70 in COMMUNITY then set local preference to Manipulating MEDs Manipulating MEDs Hot Potato Routing: Go for the Closest Egress Point Getting Burned by the Hot Potato /24 High bandwidth Provider backbone Heavy Content Web Farm egress 1 egress 2 SFF NYC IGP distances Low bandwidth backbone San Diego This Router has two BGP routes to /24. Hot potato: get traffic off of your network as Soon as possible. Go for egress 1! 75 Many s want their to carry the bits! tiny http request huge http reply 76

15 Manipulating MEDs Cold Potato Routing with MEDs (Multi-Exit Discriminator Attribute) Prefer lower MED values /24 MED = / /24 MED = 56 Heavy Content Web Farm This means that MEDs must be considered BEFORE IGP distance! Note1 : some s will not listen to MEDs Note2 : MEDs need not be tied to IGP distance 77 COMMUNITIES An optional transitive attribute A community can be used to communicate preferred treatment of a route Some communities have a well-known semantics NO_EXPORT: don t export beyond current AS (or confederation) NO_ADVERTISE: don t export at all NO_EXPORT_SUBCONFED: don t export via EBGP Use of communities How Can Routes be Colored? BGP Communities! Use of communities Communities Example A community value is 32 bits By convention, first 16 bits is ASN indicating who is giving it an interpretation community number Used for signally within and between ASes Very powerful BECAUSE it has no (predefined) meaning Community Attribute = a list of community values. (So one route can belong to multiple communities) 1:100 Customer routes 1:200 Peer routes 1:300 Provider Routes Import To Customers 1:100, 1:200, 1:300 To Peers 1:100 To Providers 1:100 Export RFC 1997 (August 1996) Two reserved communities no_export = 0xFFFFFF01: don t export out of AS no_advertise 0xFFFFFF02: don t pass to BGP neighbors 58

16 Route Reflectors Route reflectors illustration Full Mesh A route reflector is a kind of super IBGP A route reflector has clients with which it s via IBGP and for which it reflects (transitively) routes A route reflector is part of a full mesh of other route reflectors and non-clients Slide courtesy Iljitsch van Beijnum 39 Route reflectors illustration Confederations Route Reflection Use multiple private AS s inside your main AS Talk to the outside world with your main AS, hiding the private AS s Talk to the inside world as if using EBGP and IBGP for the different private AS s This needs special AS_PATH segment types Slide courtesy Iljitsch van Beijnum 40
