Emile Aben

Location: Amsterdam, NL

I'm a system architect at the RIPE NCC, where I work in the science group. I'm a chemist by training, but have been working since 1998 on Internet related things, as a sysadmin, security consultant, web developer and researcher. I am interested in technology changes (like IPv6 deployment), Internet measurement, data analysis, data visualization and security. When I'm not working I like to play electric guitar and run in circles, while listening to music.

Measuring More Internet with RIPE Atlas
Measuring More Internet with RIPE Atlas
Emile Aben — Jan 27, 2016 01:20 PM

RIPE Atlas collects a lot of measurements. But how much of the Internet are we actually measuring? We had a sense that with a limited amount of extra load on the system, we could dramatically increase the number of router IPs seen on a given day in RIPE Atlas - and that means measuring more of the Internet.

Does the Internet Route Around Damage? A Case Study Using RIPE Atlas
Does the Internet Route Around Damage? A Case Study Using RIPE Atlas

The Internet has a robust infrastructure that was designed to route around damage. But how well does it do this? We use RIPE Atlas to look at how large-scale disruptions in the Internet's core infrastructure affect end-to-end connectivity on the Internet.

A Tale of BGP Collectors and Customer Cones
Emile Aben — Oct 05, 2015 11:50 AM

When operators and researchers use data from BGP route collectors such as RIS and Route Views, it's not easy to tell if a path announced to a collector is an ISP's customer cone, an internal route, or one learned from peering or transit. In this post we look at what information we can currently get from BGP communities in RIS.

Iran and K-root: The Rest of the Story
Iran and K-root: The Rest of the Story

Dyn Research published an article on K-root recently. Here we would like to augment the picture with data from RIPE Atlas in order to provide a more complete picture of the effect of the K-root node in Iran.
