Fix Recommendation

This requirement is not applicable for the DODIN Backbone.

Configure the router to reject updates from CE routers with an originating AS in the AS_PATH attribute that does not belong to that customer.

Step 1: Configure the as-path ACL as shown in the example below:

R1(config)#ip as-path access-list 10 permit ^yy$
R1(config)#ip as-path access-list 10 deny .*

Step 2: Apply the as-path filter inbound as shown in the example below:

R1(config)#router bgp xx
R1(config-router)#neighbor x.1.4.12 filter-list 10 in

Review the router configuration to verify the router is configured to deny updates received from CE routers with an originating AS in the AS_PATH attribute that does not belong to that customer.

Step 1: Review router configuration and verify that there is an as-path access-list statement defined to only accept routes from a CE router whose AS did not originate the route. The configuration should look similar to the following:

ip as-path access-list 10 permit ^yy$
ip as-path access-list 10 deny .*

Note: the characters “^” and “$” representing the beginning and the end of the expression respectively are optional and are implicitly defined if omitted.

Step 2: Verify that the as-path access-list is referenced by the filter-list inbound for the appropriate BGP neighbors as shown in the example below:

router bgp xx
neighbor x.1.4.12 remote-as yy
neighbor x.1.4.12 filter-list 10 in

If the router is not configured to reject updates from CE routers with an originating AS in the AS_PATH attribute that does not belong to that customer, this is a finding.
