att_abstract={{Formally, the Internet inter-domain routing system is a collection
of networks, their policies, peering relationships and
organizational affiliations, and the addresses they advertize. It
also includes components like Internet exchange points. By its very
definition, each and every aspect of this system is impacted by BGP,
the de-facto standard inter-domain routing protocol.

The element of this inter-domain routing system that has attracted
the single-most attention within the research community has been the
``inter-domain topology''.  Unfortunately, almost from the get go,
the vast majority of studies of this topology, from definition, to
measurement, to modeling and analysis, have ignored the central role
of BGP in this problem. The legacy is a set of specious findings,
unsubstantiated claims, and ill-conceived ideas about the Internet
as a whole.

By presenting a BGP-focused state-of-the-art treatment of the
aspects that are critical for a rigorous study of this inter-domain
topology, we de-mystify in this paper many ``controversial''
observations reported in the existing literature.  At the same time,
we illustrate the benefits and richness of new scientific approaches
to measuring, modeling, and analyzing the inter-domain topology that
  are faithful to the BGP-specific nature of this problem domain.}},
