Internet Backbone Hacking

Backbone network technology is usually used to track the traffic in a large corporate network, and because of the large-scale network, the attack can be hidden easier. Therefore, the creation or some free software tools, on Thursday (23 / 4), to prove the theory. The tool is demonstrated in the Black Hat security conference in Amsterdam, and shows that the attack only to be in theory, can be proved with concrete.

Some of the hacking tool has been able to attack the data in the network or MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching). Software is created by enno Rey, and was developed by Daniel Mende. "We believe that the technology developed in some of the network has expired. This makes the user must be wary that the technology used in their daily life is not safe as they think. "Rey said.

Meanwhile, carriers such as Verizon, AT & T and Sprint to use MPLS to separate customer traffic based on one regional area. Rey added that the hacking tool successfully demonstrated access to the network carrier to see customer traffic or change data in it. The software can work because MPLS has a mechanism to protect the integrity of the header information as the place where to save the data packet sent.

Meanwhile, the tool also attack the network technology or the separate BGP, or Border Gateway Protocol. While the other, can break MD5 cryptography or enter the route in the BGP table without permission, so it makes it easier to hijack Internet traffic. The tool can also exploit other weaknesses in the same Ethernet protocol.
