Measuring NAT64 Usage in the Wild

Measuring NAT64 Usage in the Wild

7 min read

With IPv4 address space depleted, it's increasingly important to transition to IPv6. IPv6 transition mechanisms, which allow the two protocols to interoperate, can help. One such mechanism is NAT64. We use RIPE Atlas to measure the usage of NAT64, and compare NAT64 paths to native IPv4 paths.

What’s the Deal with IPv6 Link-Local Addresses?

What’s the Deal with IPv6 Link-Local Addresses?

...or, how RIPE Atlas measurement data just got a little bit more complex. Some people say IPv6 is "96 more bits, no magic". And while this is true for most network operators, if you're a RIPE Atlas system programmer, you can run into interesting situations. In this article, we described how link-l…

Multi-level MDA-Lite Paris Traceroute

Multi-level MDA-Lite Paris Traceroute

On-path load balancing can send traffic across many potential paths, which typical traceroute usage will not fully capture. We are working on algorithms for a more complete traceroute across load-balanced paths, and we are interested in deployment on RIPE Atlas. We'd like your feedback.

Clusters in the Expanse: Understanding and Unbiasing IPv6 Hitlists

Clusters in the Expanse: Understanding and Unbiasing IPv6 Hitlists

7 min read

Network measurements are an important tool in understanding the Internet. Due to the expanse of the IPv6 address space, exhaustive scans in IPv4 are not possible for IPv6. The best practice when conducting IPv6 measurements is to use so called IPv6 hitlists.

Does The Internet Route Around Damage in 2018?

Does The Internet Route Around Damage in 2018?

6 min read

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.
