Both the Departments of Defense and Justice agreed that the Federal Communications Commission needs to improve Internet routing security and provided recommendations on how to address vulnerabilities in the Border Gateway Protocol.

“We appreciate the opportunity to provide input on how to address vulnerabilities that threaten Internet routing security,” said Matthew Olsen, Assistant Attorney General for National Security.

In their filing, the departments recommended that the FCC implement technical security standards and enhance transparency to address vulnerabilities associated with BGP.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency previously submitted comments to the FCC in which it acknowledged the national security threat of insecure BGP and suggested that the FCC “investigate and consider methods to reduce this risk using all of its authorities statutory”.
