Hailing from a research background in philosophy, linguistics and computer science, I came to the RIPE NCC back in 2016 and took on the role of RIPE Labs Editor in 2020.
Geolocation providers usually focus on locating end user devices at the edge of the Internet. But what about the machines that make up the infrastructure in the middle? In this episode, I talk to Chris Amin about RIPE IPmap - an API developed by the RIPE NCC to geolocate core Internet infrastructur…

We take a comprehensive look at the five countries and three autonomous regions that make up the Nordic Region as the next in our series of RIPE NCC Internet Country Reports.
Vincentas Grinius is a business-driven professional with over 15+ years of network, infrastructure and internet policy experience. As a CEO at IPXO, the world’s first fully automated IP address lease and monetization platform, Grinius focuses on helping address complex network management issues and the global IPv4 shortage.
Since the exhaustion of the IPv4 address pool, companies across the globe heavily rely on IPv4 transfer and lease markets. Unfortunately, transferred IP address blocks are far more likely to be blocklisted due to IP address abuse. But while abuse negatively affects IP address reputation, the risks …
Raphael Hiesgen is a PhD student at HAW Hamburg. His research focuses on Internet measurements and security, often using network telescopes for this purpose.
The omnipresence of software introduces a constant threat of new vulnerabilities that affect widely-deployed implementations. At the end of 2021, the Log4Shell vulnerability (CVE-2021-44228) made headlines. In this article, read more about Log4Shell as seen from a reactive network telescope.
Rob has been working in the Internet industry for 20 years including almost a decade at the RIPE NCC. He holds degrees from Cambridge University and a PhD from the University of Amsterdam. He is currently working as a Product Marketing Manager at Netnod.
In this post we will look at how network time works today and the technology that keeps it accurate and secure. Most of the digital tools that society relies on–across sectors such as finance, telecommunication, security and energy–only work with precise and reliable time synchronisation. But what …
Senior Software Engineer at RIPE NCC.
Currently works on data backends for RIPE RIS and Atlas.
Previously was involved in building RPKI, Registry, LIR Portal, and many other software solutions in RIPE NCC.
It has been almost 3 years since we promoted RIS Live to a full production service. Its biggest advantage is that it delivers RIS data in real time, with minimal delays from the RIS collectors to our users. We had received a lot of positive feedback about the service, however, we were still wonderi…
Lars-Johan Liman works as Sr. Systems Specialist at Netnod Internet Exchange in Stockholm, Sweden. He is responsible for Netnod's root name service for the Domain Name System (DNS), and has spent more than 30 years plumbing and tinkering with the DNS. Over time he has worked with just about every aspect you can imagine – operation, configuration, provisioning, engineering, testing, debugging, documentation, design and evolution, international cooperation and governance, teaching, and even joking with it. He currently serves as chair of ICANN's Customer Standing Committee, and is a member of its Root Server System Advisory Committee, and its Root Server System Governance Working Group.
If you know about DNS, you've probably heard of the Time-to-Live (TTL) field. But mistakes with TTL are more common than you might think. Here we look at the quirks of DNS record sets, parent/child domains and how to avoid TTL problems.
Andrew Gallo is a Washington, DC based Principal IT Architect and Network Engineer, responsible for design and implementation of the enterprise network for a large university. Areas of specialization include the University's wide area connections, optical transport, wireless, and routing security. Andrew started during the internet upswing of the mid to late 90s installing and terminating fiber. As his career progressed, he has had experience with technologies from FDDI to ATM, of course Ethernet. Focusing not only on data networks, Andrew has experience in traditional TDM voice, VoIP, and real-time, unified collaboration technologies.
The George Washington University recently deployed Transmission Control Protocol Authentication Option (TCP-AO) after a recent code upgrade on its border routers. This further enhances BGP security features already in place on our network.
Thijs van den Hout is a research engineer at SIDN Labs, the R&D department of the .nl ccTLD registry. He has a Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence. His focus is the application of machine learning techniques to increase the safety of the internet, for example through abuse detection.
Over the past months, SIDN Labs have been improving the testbed they developed for the DDoS Clearing House. At the CONCORDIA Open Door event (COD2022) this October, they'll demonstrate how the testbed works as part of the CONCORDIA Threat Intelligence Platform. The team look at the latest changes t…
I am a research engineer in the R&D department at RIPE NCC. I am interested in internet measurements, internet outages, data analysis, and cybersecurity. Prior to joining RIPE NCC, I defended my Ph.D. in cyber-security at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands.
In this article we use data from RIPE Atlas probes to investigate the usage of 240/4, a block of IPv4 addresses 'reserved for future use', formally known as Class E in the wild.
