BGP is an inter-Autonomous System routing protocol. The primary function of a BGP speaking system is to exchange network reachability information with other BGP systems. This network reachability information includes information on the list of Autonomous Systems that reachability information traverses. This information is sufficient for constructing a graph of AS connectivity for this reachability, from which routing loops may be pruned and, at the AS level, some policy decisions may be enforced.
This version removed the concept of "up", "down", and "horizontal" relations between autonomous systems that were present in version 1. BGP-2 introduced the concept of path attributes. In addition, BGP-2 clarified parts of the protocol that were "under-specified".
This version lifts some of the restrictions on the use of the NEXT_HOP path attribute, and added the BGP Identifier field to the BGP OPEN message. It also clarifies the procedure for distributing BGP routes between the BGP speakers within an autonomous system.
This version redefines the previously class-based network layer reachability portion of the updates to specify prefixes of arbitrary length in order to represent multiple classful networks in a single entry. The AS_PATH attribute has been modified so that sets of autonomous systems, as well as individual ASs may be described. In addition, The INTER-AS METRIC attribute has been redefined as the MULTI-EXIT DISCRIMINATOR. The LOCAL-PREFERENCE and AGGREGATOR attributes have been added.

AS, Autonomous System.
(RFC 3065) A collection of autonomous systems advertised as a single AS number to BGP speakers that are not members of the confederation.
AS Confederation Identifier.
(RFC 3065) An externally visible autonomous system number that identifies the confederation as a whole.
A group of destinations which share some common property. The COMMUNITIES path attribute may be used with BGP version 2 and all subsequent versions of BGP unless specifically noted otherwise.
|0xFFFFFF01||NO_EXPORT. All routes received carrying a communities attribute containing this value MUST NOT be advertised outside a BGP confederation boundary (a stand-alone autonomous system that is not part of a confederation should be considered a confederation itself).|
|0xFFFFFF02||NO_ADVERTISE. All routes received carrying a communities attribute containing this value MUST NOT be advertised to other BGP peers.|
|0xFFFFFF03||NO_EXPORT_SUBCONFED. All routes received carrying a communities attribute containing this value MUST NOT be advertised to external BGP peers (this includes peers in other members autonomous systems inside a BGP confederation).|
|0xFFFFFF04||NOPEER. This is an advisory qualification to readvertisement of a route prefix, permitting an AS not to readvertise the route prefix to all external bilateral peer neighbour AS's. It is consistent with these semantics that an AS may filter received prefixes that are received across a peering session that the receiver regards as a bilateral peer sessions.|
(RFC 1965) An autonomous system that is contained in a given AS confederation.
