ARTEMIS: an Open-source Tool for Detecting BGP Prefix Hijacking in Real Time

ARTEMIS is a defense approach against BGP prefix hijacking attacks. It is (a) based on accurate and fast detection operated by the AS itself, by leveraging the pervasiveness of publicly available BGP monitoring services, and it (b) enables flexible and fast mitigation of hijacking events. In this article, we analyse the ARTEMIS open-source tool that our team developed with the support of the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund.

iSEND: IPv6 SEcure Neighbor Discovery Implementation for Android Devices

IPv6 SEcure Neighbor Discovery (SEND) is an extension to countermeasure the security threats in IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP). SEND provides address ownership proof, message protection, and router authorisation capabilities. The current lack of robust implementations of SEND at the end user devices limits its deployment and leave the door open for the attacks against NDP. The main goal of iSEND project is to provide an open source implementation of SEND for Linux-based operating system especially for Android devices.

Let's Connect! Easy to Install and Secure VPN Software that Respects your Privacy

Going online on unknown Internet hotspots - whether at a restaurant, an airport or in a restaurant - isn't actually very safe or secure for users. This is due to the open character of hotspots which makes it easy to impersonate legitimate hotspots and eavesdrop on traffic - or even serve malware. The main aim of the Let's Connect! project is to develop a secure, fast and usable open-source VPN solution that can be used by anybody on all types of devices. Thanks to the RIPE NCC Community Projects Fund this important goal is getting within reach.

ARTEMIS: Neutralising BGP Hijacking Within a Minute

BGP prefix hijacking is a persistent threat against Internet organisations, attributed to a lack of authorisation and authentication mechanisms in the inter-domain routing system. ARTEMIS (Automatic and Real-Time dEtection and MItigation System) is a defence system against BGP prefix hijacking, which is based on comprehensive, accurate and fast detection operated by the AS itself, and enables flexible and fast mitigation of hijacking events.
