About The EARS Project

The EARS project, led by Parsons and supported by BBN and Dragon Labs, is working with internet communities to design, standardize, and implement technologies to secure the Internet's routing protocol: the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). The solution requires two separate components that integrate together to provide complete protection: The "Resource Public Key Infrastructure" (RPKI) and the "BGP Security Extensions" (BGPSEC).
