As part of a broader organisational restructure, data networking research at Swinburne University of Technology has moved from the Centre for Advanced Internet Architecture (CAIA) to the Internet For Things (I4T) Research Lab.

Although CAIA no longer exists, this website reflects CAIA's activities and outputs between March 2002 and February 2017, and is being maintained as a service to the broader data networking research community.

Rapid detection of BGP anomalies

Tools released or used by the project
Name Description
BRT - BGP Replay Tool V0.1 BRT is a Perl script that allows to setup a BGP adjacency with BGP peer. BRT enables users to send out BGP updates from a predefined BGP update file.
RTBADT - Real-Time BGP Anomaly Detection Tool V0.1 RTBADT is a tool to detect BGP anomalies in near real-time. It uses the Recurrence Quantification Analysis (RQA) technique, an advance non-linear statistical technique based on the concepts of phase plane trajectories. RTBADT also can detect hidden anomalous behaviour in the underlying BGP traffic that may pass without detection
BRT - BGP Replay Tool V0.2 BRT v0.2 extends the ability of BRT v0.1 to peer with different BGP speakers operating systems such as Quagga and real Cisco routers. It also supports IPV6 and connecting to multiple peers.
bgpdump bgpdump or libBGPdump is a c library designed to help with analysing MRT file format. This tool is needed by BRT to convert MRT format to human readable format.
