Password Management in RIPE Database
Kaveh Ranjbar — Nov 09, 2011 12:00 AM

Passwords are the most used authentication method in the RIPE Database. This mechanism has two major design problems. The MD5 hash is public, when running a single query (not for bulk queries). And in case of email updates, plain text passwords are sent by email to update the database. Find below some recommendations on how to secure your objects until these issues have been addressed.

Addresses for RIPE RIS Beacons in Jeopardy
Addresses for RIPE RIS Beacons in Jeopardy
Daniel Karrenberg — Oct 31, 2011 02:50 PM

According to address policy, the experimental address allocations for RIPE RIS beacons have to be returned soon. This would mean we have to either discontinue the RIS beacons or request permanent allocations for them according to address policy. We are asking for community support to continue operating the RIS beacons at the current addresses and for support for the address allocations.

Large-scale PCAP Data Analysis Using Apache Hadoop
Large-scale PCAP Data Analysis Using Apache Hadoop
Wolfgang Nagele — Oct 12, 2011 11:50 AM

The RIPE NCC operates various data intensive services. As part of our DNS operations we have been operating K-root since 1997. A key to the stable operation of this service is a solid understanding of the traffic it responds to and how it evolves over time. With the success and growth of the Internet, traffic to the DNS root servers has increased and K-root produces terabytes of raw packet capture (PCAP) files every month. We were looking for a scalable and fast approach to analyse this data. In this article I will explain how we use Apache Hadoop and why we open-sourced our PCAP implementation for it.
