Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a dynamic routing protocol in the Internet that allows Autonomous System (AS) to exchange information with other networks. The main goal of BGP is to provide a loop free path to the destination. Security has been a major issue for BGP and due to a large number of attacks on routers; it has resulted in router misconfiguration, power failure and Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. Detection and prevention of attacks in router at early stages of implementation has been a major research focus in the past few years. In this research paper, we compare three statistical based anomaly detection algorithms (CUSUM, adaptive threshold and k-mean cluster) through experiment. We then carry out analysis, based on detection probability, false alarm rate and capture intensity (high & low) on the attacked routers.
