A New Approach to Enhance Security in MPLS Network


S. Veni, G.M.Kadhar Nawaz


Vol. 13  No. 3  pp. 64-68


As Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is becoming a more widespread technology For providing virtual private network (VPN) services, MPLS architecture security is of increasing concern to service providers (SPs) and VPN customers. MPLS suffers from a number of security issues as soon as an attacker successfully penetrates the core. This paper provides an approach to enhance security in MPLS network by integrating a new (k,n) Threshold Secret Sharing scheme with MPLS in which shares obtained are send over multiple disjoint paths. Our approach is implemented to measure time overhead on secrets packet transmission.
