New in RIPEstat: In-widget Comparison and Monitoring

Suzanne Taylor Muzzin — Jul 24, 2013 10:00 AM

RIPEstat users told us they wanted to be able to compare different resources in the same widget, and be able to monitor network events in real time. We're happy to announce that we've started to make this functionality available, beginning with two existing widgets: Country Routing Statistics and BGP Update Activity. And we want to hear from you which widgets should be next on our list!

This article outlines the GRS service including the recent changes. None of these changes have any impact on the standard RIPE Database query service.

"diff" Functionality in the RIPE Database

Denis Walker — Jul 11, 2013 02:00 PM

Users often like to see the difference between two versions of an object. Some objects can be long and complex. It is not easy to look at two text versions and see what changed. We are proposing to implement a 'diff' function for the RIPE Database.

Here’s looking at you …

Geoff Huston — Jul 04, 2013 12:00 PM

Here’s looking at you … Much has been said in recent weeks about various forms of cyber spying. The United States has accused the Chinese of cyber espionage and stealing industrial secrets. A former contractor to the United States’ NSA, Edward Snowden, has accused various US intelligence agencies of systematic examination of activity on various popular social network services, through a program called “PRISM”. These days cloud services may be all the vogue, but there is also an emerging understanding that once your data heads into one of these clouds, then it’s no longer necessarily entirely your data; it may have become somebody else’s data too.

All IP Addresses Are Equal? "dot-zero" Addresses Are Less Equal

Stéphane Bortzmeyer — Jul 03, 2013 11:00 AM

In theory, all IP addresses are the same, and you can allocate them at random without a problem. 192.168.1.2 is certainly not better or worse than 192.168.1.15, right? But, in practice, certain IP addresses are regarded as "special" by some implementations and do not yield the same user experience. This is the case for the "dot-zero", IPv4 addresses in which the last byte is zero.
