Back in the late 1980s and the early 1990s when BGP was developed, security was still an afterthought for protocols used on the internet. Since that time, we've come to realize that there are two potential security issues with BGP: you may be talking to the wrong device, or the right device may be saying the wrong thing...
In 1997, a small ISP in Virginia caused a major disruption to the internet, known as the "AS 7007 incident". What happened was that AS 7007 started to take prefixes from other autonomous systems and split those up into /24s and propagate those "more specifics" to its ISP Sprint...
The Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) system is a way to couple an IP address range to an autonomous system number through cryptographic signatures, described in RFC 6480. IP prefixes and AS numbers are the resources; the public key infrastructure is run by the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) that give out IP addresses and AS numbers...
At this time, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is still working on documents that provide an overview of BGPsec and the BGPsec specification. BGPsec looks a lot like Secure BGP or S-BGP that was developed in the late 1990s at BBN Technologies. Unlike RPKI, BGPsec is an integral part of the BGP protocol, and thus, BGP routers must do the heavy lifting...
