The global Internet is comprised of a large number of autonomous networks that agree to cooperate. Each such network---called an Autonomous System, or AS---is entirely responsible for management and routing of all internet traffic within its own domain. The global Internet works though because ASes enter into business agreements to route traffic from one to another if traffic sources and destinations are in distinct ASes. At the level of AS, socalled border routers forward Internet traffic from… CONTINUE READING
