Devices communicate across networks seemingly instantaneously across the world, and underlying this communication are complex software and hardware infrastructures that attempt to optimize the digital pathways. Network routers, switches, and firewalls make up the hardware, and software such as the Routing Information Protocol RIP, Open Shortest Path First, and Border Gateway Protocol implement the necessary logic required to compute optimal paths. This report is part of a hands-on cybersecurity studies series. Provided is a hands-on exercise that starts by demonstrating RIP and describing some of the dangers that may arise when the service is misconfigured. Then a listing of mitigations are discussed.
