Hi,

This is a very well concern for a provider and Customer as CE-PE connectivity is the connection between two different entities. But when we talk about the CE-PE connection what all we can prevent:

1. Securing BGP neighbor ship with enabling password

2. Preventing Excessive Route flooding

3. Securing the date over an MPLS VPN network

For detail on these refer the below document:

Hope it answers your query.

Thanks & Regards

Sandeep
