IPv6 RIPEness - More Stars
IPv6 RIPEness - More Stars
Emile Aben — 26 Sep 2012

IPv6 RIPEness helped in creating awareness and got people into action with regards to their first steps towards deploying IPv6 in the RIPE NCC service region. Up until now IPv6 RIPEness didn't measure actual IPv6 deployment. In this article we propose a measure (a "5th star"), which attempts to measure actual IPv6 deployment at the edge.

The 2012 IPv6 CPE Survey
The 2012 IPv6 CPE Survey
Marco Hogewoning — 26 Sep 2012

In response to a huge amount of demand, the RIPE NCC has conducted another survey on the level of IPv6 support for various vendor's Customer Premises Equipment (CPE). The questions in the 2012 focused around the most common access technologies. The results have been published using a simple colour coded matrix, listing which features are present, on the roadmap or not available. We've also developed a new interactive user interface so you're now able to filter the results and compare different models. This article will highlight some of the 2012 findings as well as some comparison to previous editions of the survey.

Counting DNSSEC
Counting DNSSEC
Geoff Huston — 24 Sep 2012

It is possible to measure how well we are doing with DNSSEC? How many of the DNS resolvers will now perform DNSSEC validation of a domain name? How many of the Internet's user population are using these DNSSEC-validating resolvers? In this article we will explore a way to answer these questions, and provide some measures that describe which countries are well advanced in their use of DNSSEC deployment, and which are falling behind.
