Some of the third version of RIPE Atlas probes have recently had an issue with their USB sticks. We're investigating what may be causing this issue and have a possible solution, outlined below. (At the same time, we're also looking into a new hardware solution for the future.) If you've had trouble with your probe, please follow these simple steps. RIPE Atlas users everywhere will thank you for getting your probe back online - and we will, too!
What makes the Internet of Things (IoT) different from the Internet as we know it? Today's Internet connects people, while the Internet of Things connects... things. What are these things? In the case of IoT, it means embedded computer chips that are attached to some physical device with networking capability.
Browse through a collection of presentations, tutorials and videos about RIPE Atlas, from both RIPE NCC staff as well as members of the Internet community who use RIPE Atlas.
Hear from RIPE Atlas users about their experiences with RIPE Atlas and how they use RIPE Atlas data to troubleshoot and gain valuable information about their own networks.
Academic researchers use RIPE Atlas data to investigate a number of topics, from Path MTU black hole detection to packet delay.
RIPE NCC developers and researchers present their own findings about a range of topics using RIPE Atlas data, from the effect of hurricanes on the Internet to examining IPv6 /48 filtering.
In June 2016, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) hosted a meeting of ministers to consider the state of the Digital Economy. The central message from this meeting was the message that: “Governments must act faster to help people and firms to make greater use of the Internet and remove regulatory barriers to digital innovation or else risk missing out on the potentially huge economic and social benefits of the digital economy.” All well and good, and as a piece of rhetoric, it seems to strike an appropriately positive note without straying far from what appears to be bland truisms of our time.
In this article, I'm showing how we can mitigate DNS attacks by implementing a stateless firewall filter at the aggregation or edge router.
There are about 600 DNS root server instances deployed around the world. But does everyone have an equal level of access to a root server in their region? Are they fairly distributed? Do all major (and country level) network operators recognise the value in deploying (or peering with) a root server in their network?
Last week I had the opportunity to visit the LPWA IoT Networks Event in Amsterdam, a two-day conference dedicated to the use of low power wide area (LPWA) wireless networks that lie behind many Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that are entering the market.
