The Federal Communications Commission voted unanimously on Thursday to advance a proposal to improve the security of a foundational routing protocol for the Internet.

Under the notice of proposed rulemaking on Border Gateway Protocol security, which now will go to a public comment period before final adoption, broadband Internet providers would have to develop and maintain private BGP security plans. The top nine providers would be required to provide quarterly public reports on their progress to the FCC.
