BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) - Linux

  • The interdomain Border Gateway Protocol determines paths between autonomous systems on the Internet.
Detailed Description
  • BGP uses a path vector algorithm where routers exchange full path information of a route. An important feature is that it can define routing policies, which can be used by a network to specify which type of traffic it is willing to process. The current version of BGP is BGP version 4 (BGP-4).
