Lately I’ve been involved in the dn42 darknet initiative. It’s purpose is to let people build an internet on top of the internet by using VPN tunnels and BGP routing.
In order to aid troubleshooting and insight in the network, I’ve been looking for a BGP looking glass for Vyatta, the routing software I use. I couldn’t find it, so I took it upon myself to build one.
It’s a web frontend which drives a Perl backend using AJAX. It connects to your router with SSH, and returns the output to the client. For all information, view the README file.
