The question is explained in full in the title. I wish to know what the security issues are when deploying S-BGP.

Thank you in advance!

  • Aside from security, it is extremely complex, slowing updates and convergence.

S-BGP is still a draft at IETF: https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-clynn-s-bgp-protocol-01. So I think that you will have to deal with unstable implementations. It is more likely an operational issue than a security one.
