APNIC’s Chief Scientist, Geoff Huston, participated at the 66th North American Network Operators Group meeting (NANOG 66) from 8 to 10 February 2016, and the following CAIDA Active Internet Measurement Systems (AIMS) workshop on the 10 to 12 February, both held in San Diego, California.
NANOG 66 comprised of several tracks on technical content and discussions surrounding security, routing, peering and the DNS, to name a few, with keynote presentations from Tony Tauber from Comcast, Greg Dendy from Equinox, and Al Burgio from IIX.
CAIDA’s annual AIMS workshops endevour to promote discussion between academics, industry, policymakers, and funding agencies on active Internet measurement, and exchange of research ideas and questions that have been answered, or could be answered with proposed measurement infrastructures.
APNIC activities included:
- At NANOG 66, Geoff Huston presented after the opening ceremony, sharing his experiences using a large scale measurement program to provide an answer to the question of whether IPv6 is faster or slower than IPv4.
- Geoff presented two days later at the CAIDA AIMS workshop, this time talking about the importance of collecting and measuring meaningful user data, which can be used to measure IPv6 penetration, DNS behaviour and to identify stalker IPs. See his presentation below.
