A brief look at the effects of BGP route origin validation on mis-announcements and hijackings.
This is the first in a series of "interesting graphs" we are publishing in CircleID on a regular basis. The graph will always be published on RIPE Labs as well together with additional information and details. Here we will also describe the methodology used when producing those statistics.
RIPE Labs has been migrated to a new platform. At the same time we added some more functionality and made it easier to participate and navigate.
Terms and Conditions for Data Access. Please note that due to the implementation of the RIPE NCC Access system, we are currently unable to register new users for this prototype service. Existing data users can still access the data with their usual credentials.
ExaBGP is a new application designed to provide an easy way for programmers and system admistrators to interact with BGP networks.
Around 90% of all email is spam, and the situation is not getting better. The IIAR project at the University of Texas is building econometric models for economic incentives for Internet email providers, so that they can better prevent and deal with spam and botnets.
This graph shows how the number of various RIPE Database objects evolved over time, in particular domain, intenum, route and aut_num objects.
The Routing Information Service (RIS) is a RIPE NCC project to collect and store Internet routing data. Both BGP updates and RIB dumps are collected and stored. The data is then made available to the Internet community for troubleshooting and research.
This data is a mirror of the passive (i.e. traffic trace) datasets stored at the WITS archive that is maintained by the WAND research group. Because bandwidth is expensive in New Zealand it is very beneficial for the WAND research group to have this data hosted elsewhere.
This dataset consists of a daily snapshot of the reverse zones (in-addr.arpa and ip6.arpa) as published by the RIRs on their public FTP servers in the /pub/zones/ directory. The RIRs use this data operationally. The zones under in-addr.arpa and ip6.arpa are assembled from these files.
