IPv6 RIPEness - One Year Later
IPv6 RIPEness - One Year Later
Vesna Manojlovic — May 04, 2011 09:40 AM

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.

Using the ‘Maximum Length’ Option in ROAs
Alex Band — Apr 19, 2011 04:45 PM

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.

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.
