Is BGP Safe Yet?

Updated: Apr 23

Cloudflare recently launched Is BGP Safe Yet which allows anyone to check if their Internet Service Provider (ISP) employs security protections and filters that can make BGP more stable.


Is BGP Safe Yet performs the checking by offering a legitimate route and an invalid one to your ISP to load. If your ISP catches the invalid route and only loads the page on the real route, it passes the test. But if it accepts both routes as valid, your ISP fails, meaning that it hasn't yet implemented BGP protections to check for bad routes and filter them.


Is BGP Safe Yet also provides tonnes of information about BGP Hijacking and FAQ of BGP protocol and security.
