About the author
Based in Amsterdam, NL
I'm a system architect/research coordinator 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 visualisation, sustainability and security. I'd like to bring research and operations closer together, ie. do research that is operationally relevant. When I'm not working I like to make music (electric guitar, bass and drums), do sports (swimming, (inline) skating, bouldering, soccer), and try to be a good parent.

The roll-out of a signed root-zone at K-root on 24 March 2010 was uneventful. But we saw the number of resolvers doing priming queries increase slightly since 18 March 2010 and wanted to find out why.
In Part 1 and Part 2 of this article we showed various statistics on IPv6 measurements of web clients and caching resolvers. In this part we explain how the measurements were done.
In Part 1 of this article we showed some statistics on IPv6 at end-users and at caching DNS resolvers. In this part will dig deeper into the data we collected and show details on mobile device use of IPv6, country- and city-level IPv6 deployment numbers, and AS-level statistics.
It is important to keep an eye on how the IPv6 Internet develops. We wrote a script to measure the IPv4 capability, IPv6 capability and IPv4/IPv6 preference of end-users visiting our site. What is unique about this script is that it allows us also to measure the caching DNS resolver that the end-us…
In this article we take a look at DNS priming queries arriving during the deployment of a DNSSEC signed zone at the DNS root servers. We are specifically looking for potential problems as a result of this deployment.
As part of our Data Repository, the RIPE NCC has released a new dataset. This dataset contains DNS lookups (A+AAAA), ping/ping6, traceroute/traceroute6 and HTTP fetches (IPv4/IPv6) from 53 vantage points (TTM, CAIDA Ark and others) to 60 websites involved in World IPv6 Launch. The data covers the p…
This is the last in a series of articles in which we look at traffic statistics at Internet Exchange Points during the European Championship 2012. This time we looked at IXP traffic during the semi-finals and the final. In addition we also look back over the entire 5 weeks of matches and draw some …
This is the fourth in a series of articles in which we look at traffic statistics at Internet Exchange Points during the European Championship currently taking place. This time we looked at IXP traffic during the quarter-finals.
In this article we show some interesting traffic graphs seen at IXPs during the first round of matches.
The European Football Championships is the third most watched sporting event in the world (after the World Cup and the Olympics). Euro 2012 takes place in Poland and Ukraine from 8 June, so we are teaming up with Euro-IX (The European Internet Exchange Point Association) to look at Internet Exchang…
This article is looking at different measurements done at the network level and at the end user level and the results seen through these measurements.
RIPE Atlas is releasing a new service for Local Internet Registries (LIRs): if you are a member of the RIPE NCC, you can test the reachability of your IPv6 website from all IPv6-capable RIPE Atlas probes (currently more than 600).
