A year ago we introduced IPv6 RIPEness - a system that rates IPv6 deployment of Local Internet Registries based on certain criteria. It was meant to encourage LIRs to deploy IPv6. Now, one year later, we are proud to present the progress of this project.
With all the feedback received after the last IPv6 CPE matrix we published, we have now developed a more detailed survey to compile the experience you have with the IPv6 capabilities of your Customer Premise Equipment. Please help other users by filling in this survey!
The RIPE NCC is working on a mobile application that will make it easier for users to access data in the RIPE Database from a mobile device.
How well does Teredo perform? This article reports on an exploration of Teredo performance using the 1x1 gif test technique.
This article summarises yesterday's RIPEstat demo session, including new features, changes and improvements. At the end of the article you can find the date of the next demo, and options for providing feedback.
In the resource certification system you specify your routing policy via Route Origin Authorization (ROA) objects. One of the options you can set is the ‘Maximum Length’, which specifies the maximum length of an IP address prefix that the AS is authorised to advertise. In this article we will analyse if this feature is being used properly.
We have just released the RIPE NCC Resource Certification Web Validator. It will allow you to validate a Route Origin Authorisation (ROA) file against the RIPE NCC Trust Anchor through a web form, either online or locally.
Since we started providing the certification service on 1 January 2011, many LIRs made use of the service. In this article you can see some graphs showing the number of certificates in place today, as well as certified address space.
In the fall of 2010 SURFnet, the Dutch National Research and Education Network, held a workshop on IPv6. One of the issues that arose was making an IPv6 addressing plan. While this seems a simple subject at first, it turned out to be more complex. SURFnet decided to document best practices and make the results freely available.
Amidst the recent political unrest in the Middle East, researchers have observed significant changes in Internet traffic and connectivity. In this article we tap into a previously unused source of data: unsolicited Internet traffic arriving from Libya. The traffic data we captured shows distinct changes in unsolicited traffic patterns since 17 February 2011.
