An open-source tool to monitor, detect, and mitigate BGP hijacks.Deploy Now
“ARTEMIS has proven to be a fast, accurate and very reliable solution to monitor our prefixes and identify hijacks in timely manner. After passing successfuly the testing period, we have started integrating it with the rest of our systems and consider it as an important piece of our infrastructure. The INSPIRE team proved to be a great team player in this project and provide us the necessary features and support when needed.”
“ARTEMIS has been a very informative and helpful tool in examining potential BGP misconfigurations. It provides more information, and the team is responsive and easy to work with.”
ARTEMIS is an open-soure tool, that implements a defense approach against BGP prefix hijacking attacks.
It is (a) based on accurate and fast detection operated by the AS itself, by leveraging the pervasiveness of publicly available BGP monitoring services, and it (b) enables flexible and fast mitigation of hijacking events.
Compared to existing approaches/tools, ARTEMIS combines characteristics desirable to network operators such as comprehensiveness, accuracy, speed, privacy, and flexibility. With the ARTEMIS approach, prefix hijacking can be neutralized within a minute!
Moreover, one may optionally configure firewall rules related to the server/VM. We recommend using ufw for this task. Please check the comments in the respective script we provide and set the corresponding <> fields in the file before running:
NOTE: For security reasons, we highly recommend protecting your machine with such rules. ARTEMIS tries to minimize external port exposure to minimize the attack surface on the system itself.
