Chinese Internet Traffic Re-Routing Highlights Vulnerabilities

Information Security Forum : 19 November, 2010  (Technical Article)
The Information Security Forum comments on the case of China Telecom re-routing 15% of global internet traffic
Information Security Forum responds to US-China Economic and Security review commission report regarding China Telecom sending incorrect re-routing information

Steve Durbin, Global Vice President at the Information Security Forum said: "Whilst the re-routing of 15% of the world's Internet traffic might be a severe case, when we consider our over-reliance on Internet-only communication channels, it highlights not only our vulnerability - but the need for protection of our critical infrastructure.

As part of our forward-looking Threat Horizon programme, we have identified cyber-security as a key challenge. Make no mistake, the Internet is a fantastic tool when it works but we are increasingly at a loss when it encounters a problem. Whilst it does have a high degree of resilience, it is only as good as its weakest link.

The threat of Internet infrastructure failure is a real issue confronting organisations today. As organisations become more reliant on Internet-only communications channels we need to improve and enhance our protection in cyber-space."
