This year's Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) was held in Amsterdam from 21-23 October. In this article we highlight some of the presented work that we think is interesting and that the RIPE community might find useful.

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.

Humans are pretty good at finding patterns in network measurements, but it can be difficult to automate this so one can process many time series at the same time. Now we have an expert in the house who can help us with this.
In this article we look into the uptake of BGP Large Communities using the RIPE Routing Information Service (RIS).
On the night of 9 April 2018, DE-CIX Frankfurt experienced an outage. As this is one of the largest Internet Exchange Points, this is an interesting case to study in more depth to see what we can learn about Internet robustness. We plan to update this article if new information/corrections flow in.
Last week I attended the Passive and Active Measurement (PAM) conference in Berlin. In this article I present some highlights and take-aways.
This year's Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) was held in London from 1 - 3 November. In this article we highlight some of the presented work that we think is interesting and that the RIPE community might find useful.
In this article we will be delving into the behaviour of the Linux implementation of TCP, and looking at the way in which TCP establishes a connection. There are socket options in Linux that cause the TCP handshake to behave in a rather curious way.
After we observed increased query load on the root name severs recently, we did some investigation and analysis which is described in the article below.
World IPv6 Day took place on 8 June 2011. The RIPE NCC did a number of measurements both before and during World IPv6 Day. We've done an initial analysis of the data and would like to share our first impressions and results with you.
RIPE NCC and BBN have been working on measuring the impact of 6to4 on the latency of Internet traffic. This article describes the measurement techniques used for this survey, and some initial findings based on measurements conducted at BBN.
A year ago we introduced IPv6 RIPEness - a system that rates IPv6 deployment of Local Internet Registries based on certain criteria. It was meant to encourage LIRs to deploy IPv6. Now, one year later, we are proud to present the progress of this project.
Since we started providing the certification service on 1 January 2011, many LIRs made use of the service. In this article you can see some graphs showing the number of certificates in place today, as well as certified address space.
It is often claimed that the Internet Routing Registry is not accurate and complete enough. Is this really the case? In this article we are looking at how many organisations that receive an Autonomous System Number from the RIPE NCC use the RIPE Routing Registry.
