C. Cardona: AUTHOR [+2]
It is common practice for network operators to propagate a more- specific prefix in the BGP routing system along with the less- specific prefix that they originate. It is also possible for some Autonomous Systems (ASes) to apply different policies to the more specific and the less-specific prefix.

Impact of BGP Filtering on Inter-Domain Routing Policies
This document describes how unexpected traffic flows can emerge across an autonomous system as the result of other autonomous systems filtering or restricting the propagation of more-specific prefixes. We provide a review of the techniques to detect the occurrence of this issue and defend against it.
