This artlce looks at the results of a recent survey that was conducted to find out which network security methods are currently in place and how operators are preparing for the introduction of Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI). As part of the study, we also conducted interviews with a number of routing experts and network operators.
Please find below a list of all articles related to the IPv6 RIPEness study showing how IPv6 is deployed by country, based on four different criteria.
Following up from an earlier article on RIPE Labs, we now present 3 new Internet organizational layers to provide economic incentives to cooperate more on improving Internet security. What is needed is better coordination and motivation through reputational and financial incentives.
One way to determine the denseness of the Internet, or its “interconnectedness”, is to look at the path length between Autonomous Systems (ASes). And are there any differences visible when looking at IPv4 or IPv6 networks? See our findings in this article.
The launch date of our new active measurements network, RIPE Atlas, is close. We already received a lot of interest and offers to host such a probe. In this article, we explain some more details about how to participate in this effort.
Olivier Crepin-Leblond from the Internet Society chapter in England is announcing the results of a tool they designed and implemented. It is an “IPv6 crawler" that crawls through the DNS to detect IPv6 compliant servers. The results were interesting and can be viewed on an "IPv6 Matrix" showing IPv6 penetration on geographical maps.
Please find below all previous versions of the IPv6 CPE survey and matrix with the most recent version on top.
We are proud to announce a new release of the RIPE NCC Resource Certification system. We are gearing up for the production release on 1 January 2011 and have implemented some critical changes and new features.
In this article we explore the relation between global network visibility as seen by the Routing Information Service (RIS) and the length of announced prefixes.
With the IPv4 address space nearing its end, we are closely monitoring the number of address not yet assigned or allocated. See below one way of measuring them.
