Federal Government Upgrading Routing Security

Susan Hall

The federal government is beefing up security of its Internet routing system in a plan expected to take four years or more to implement, reports Network World.


Spending at the Department of Homeland Security will rise from $600,000 a year for the past three years to about $2.5 million a year in 2009 on the project.


The upgrade aims to add digital signatures to router communications to prevent routing hijacks as well as accidental misconfiguration of routing data.
