A RIPE Atlas View of Internet Meddling in Turkey

Emile Aben — Mar 31, 2014 10:40 AM

A RIPE Atlas View of Internet Meddling in Turkey In RIPE Atlas we see latencies to Google's 8.8.8.8 DNS resolver service drop in Turkey. We expect this is due to hijacking of the 8.8.8.8 service. Our measurements show a timeline of these events. Note that even when the Twitter ban had been lifted, RIPE Atlas still saw fake 8.8.8.8 DNS service active in Turkey. In the evening of 7 April the situation returned to normal.

An Updated DNS Monitoring Service

Fatemah Mafi — Mar 18, 2014 01:40 PM

An Updated DNS Monitoring Service Since 2003, the RIPE NCC’s DNS Monitoring Service (DNSMON), has been providing a comprehensive, objective, and up-to-date overview on the quality of the service offered by TLD and other DNS operators. Due to technical advancements and in line with our aim to provide consolidated services, we are introducing a new DNSMON, currently running in parallel with the existing, "old" one.

The Many Instances of the L-root Name Server

Stéphane Bortzmeyer — Jan 20, 2014 04:50 PM

The Many Instances of the L-root Name Server The techniques used by the L-root DNS server are documented in RFC 7108 "A Summary of Various Mechanisms Deployed at L-Root for the Identification of Anycast Nodes". These techniques can be used by the RIPE Atlas probes to find the instance of L-root they are talking to.

How Many RIPE Atlas Probes Can Resolve IPv6-only Domain Names?

Stéphane Bortzmeyer — Jan 13, 2014 09:05 AM

Each RIPE Atlas probe has at least one DNS resolver, indicated by a DHCP reply on the local network of the probe. Irrespective of the IP address of the resolver, this server may have IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity or only IPv4 connectivity. What is the percentage among RIPE Atlas probes?

Proposing Making RIPE Atlas Data More Public

Vesna Manojlovic — Dec 17, 2013 12:15 PM

Proposing Making RIPE Atlas Data More Public RIPE Atlas is now three years old, and is moving from a prototype to production service. Based on our experience so far, observing typical usage and listening to user feedback, we suggest opening up the publication of measurement data further. In this article we aim to clarify the current situation regarding privacy, and ask for community input about our suggested plan to move forward.

Typhoon Haiyan - What we see in RIPEstat and RIPE Atlas

Emile Aben — Nov 08, 2013 03:45 PM

As one of the strongest typhoons on record, Haiyan is feared to have a devastating effect on the Philippines. We looked for evidence of its effects on the country's core Internet infrastructure. At first glance, the typhoon's impact on core Internet infrastructure appears to be modest. This is in stark contrast with the expected humanitarian situation in the affected area.

RIPE Atlas - Packet Size Matters

Emile Aben — Oct 02, 2013 04:30 PM

RIPE Atlas - Packet Size Matters This new RIPE Labs article talks about trying to send large packets over the Internet. Above a certain size, these packets will have to be fragmented, which is known to cause problems. In both IPv4 and IPv6, we see approximately 10% of RIPE Atlas probes that are unsuccessful in pings with fragmented packets, while they don't encounter problems with smaller unfragmented packets.
