A Simple BGP

A Simple BGP is initiative of Radar by Qrator team which aims to simplify
the process of BGP configuration and avoid route leaks by adding built-in
protection against route leaks in BGP.

Route leak is a network anomaly, when route learned from provider or peer
is announced to another provider or peer. The effect of such issues could
vary from increased network delays for victim (originator of prefix) to DoS
for both victim and leaker. According to our research main reason of these
routing issues are mistakes in BGP configuration. You could find more
details about proposed BGP extension on our website
<https://radar.qrator.net/tools/simple-bgp>. We have already implemented
this extension as a fork of BIRD routing daemon. You could download it from
GitHub <https://github.com/QratorLabs/bird> under GNU public license. This
implementation has full backward compatibility with "classic" BGP, so you
are welcome to use it now and be sure that you will have no route leaks
inside your network.

We have also finished big inner work with our AS relation model and
architecture reconfiguration. The result of these changes should make data
accurate and we now are quite near to start providing real time service.
The weekly reports will be back at next Monday.

We are waiting for your comments, feedbacks and suggestions! You could also
catch us in person during this week at RIPE meeting.
