Geopolitics of BGP

We have investigated the logical layer of cyberspace through an analysis of the structure of connectivity and the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). This protocol has been leveraged by countries to control the flow of information or for active strategic purposes. We focused on several countries and characterized their strategies by linking them to current architectures and understanding their resilience in times of crisis. We focus on the case of Iran and uncovered the deep changes that has happened in the past 5 years. This study was premonitory as we observed in november 2019 the full extend of the strategy with the large scale internet disruptions. This generates a lot of mediatic coverage.
