Integrity for Virtual Private Routed Networks
Abstract— The term Virtual Private Network (VPN) encompasses a wide array of diverse technologies and network architectures. All VPNs should provide users with the isolation and security associated with private networks, but at lower costs made possible by implementing these networks over some type of shared infrastructure. Provider provisioned VPN allow enterprises to outsource their private backbone networks to service providers. For this reason, we will also refer to them as Virtual Private Routed Networks (VPRNs). This contrasts with other VPN technologies that require customers to manage their own point-to-point connections (leased lines or tunnels) and associated network administration. One type of VPRN currently being deployed is described in RFC 2547, which uses BGP to propagate routing information for all VPNs implemented within a provider’s backbone, and a tunneling technology, such as MPLS, to isolate traffic. This technology requires fairly complex configurations with...
