Abstract : Bloom Filter is a widely used data structure in computer science. It enables memory efficient and fast set membership queries. Bloom filter-based solutions have been proposed in the past decade for lookup in forwarding tables of backbone routers 2. However, the main shortcomings of using Bloom Filters for lookup lie in the absence of support for deletion operations that are needed to update the forwarding tables. Counting Bloom Filter supporting deletion has therefore to be used, increasing significantly the memory requirement. Moreover, Counting Bloom Filter suffers from both false positive and false negative. In this paper, we propose to solve the issue with deletion of Bloom Filters by using a Withdrawal To annOuncement WTO mapping that replaces withdrawal with announcements, transforming deletions into additions or record changes. Experimental evaluation show that the proposed techniques improve largely the performance of Bloom Filter used for forwarding lookup and open way for the use of Bloom Filters in real operational settings.
