Blackholing service is a protection mechanism against Denial Of Service attacks increasingly seen on the Internet today.
This feature is available only for Route Servers peers. However, all members can design and configure their own mechanisms on their bilateral peering relations.
We make use of RFC 7999 community 65535:666 at our service implementation. Any of our servers will skip prefix validation and will automatically rewrite the BGP NH Attribute pointing to one of the blackholing machines existent on both LANs:
- LX-LAN1: 18.104.22.168 | 2001:7F8:A:1::666
- LX-LAN2: 22.214.171.124 | 2001:7F8:A:2::1060
