Measuring Countries and IXPs with RIPE Atlas

Emile Aben — Mar 23, 2015 01:55 PM

Measuring Countries and IXPs with RIPE Atlas We've been working with various Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) over the last few months to see how RIPE Atlas active measurements can provide insight into how they are keeping local traffic local. This could help to improve performance and efficiency for IXPs and their members. To explore this we've created a set of python scripts to analyse Internet traffic paths between RIPE Atlas probes in a given country, and see if we can identify if they traverse IXPs.

Inferring Distributed Reflection Denial of Service Attacks from Darknet Space

Claude Fachkha — Mar 20, 2015 09:15 AM

Inferring Distributed Reflection Denial of Service Attacks from Darknet Space This work proposes a novel approach to infer and characterise Internet-scale DNS Distributed Reflection Denial of Service (DRDoS) attacks by leveraging the darknet space. The aim of this work is to extract useful information related to DRDoS activities such as intensity, rate and geo-location in addition to various network-layer and flow-based insights.

New Architecture Model for K-root Local Instances

Romeo Zwart — Mar 11, 2015 02:34 PM

New Architecture Model for K-root Local Instances We have redesigned the K-root architecture for our hosted nodes, formerly known as K-root local instances. System architecture and network setup have been simplified a lot. This will reduce our management effort for K-root and reduce costs for K-root hosts.

Introducing ENISA: Securing European Networks

Rossella Mattioli — Mar 03, 2015 01:45 PM

ENISA, the European Union Agency for Network & Information Security, is an independent body of expertise, set up by the European Union, to secure Europe’s information society. It was founded in 2004 to facilitate the exchange of information between EU institutions, the public and the private sector. The goal is to work together with operational communities to identify pragmatic solutions to current security issues. In this first article, we have asked ENISA to introduce themselves and highlight some of their activities that could be of interest to the RIPE community.
