BGP misconfiguration study (posted 2002-10-26)

The Computer Science and Engineering Department of the University of Washington is doing a study on BGP misconfiguration, which resulted in the paper Underst anding BGP Misconfiguration (postscript). The conclusion of this paper is that there is a lot of misconfiguration going on (200 to 1200 prefixes are affected each day), and it's not always human error.
