Projects and Infrastructure
To press forward its mission of promoting the engineering and maintenance of a robust, scalable Internet, CAIDA focuses its resources on various projects and areas of strategic interest. These pages document the plans and status for these projects. Please contact if you have questions or comments about specific projects.

Projects and Infrastructure

  • Archipelago Measurement Infrastructure (Ark)
    Archipelago (Ark for short) is CAIDA's next-generation active measurement infrastructure and represents an evolution of the skitter infrastructure.
  • IODA : Detection and analysis of large-scale Internet infrastructure outages
    Developing an operational prototype system that monitors the Internet, in near-realtime, to identify macroscopic Internet outages affecting the edge of the network, i.e., significantly impacting an AS or a large fraction of a country.
    The Measurement and Analysis of Interdomain Congestion project has developed a prototype system to monitor interdomain links and their congestion state, in order to provide empirical grounding to debates related to interdomain congestion.
  • Macroscopic Topology Project
    Active measurement of connectivity and latency data for a wide cross-section of the commodity Internet.
  • Spoofer
    Measuring the Internet's susceptibility to spoofed source address IP packets, we generate a summary report on the current "state" of Internet IP source address spoofing/filtering using data from an active measurement tool.
  • Network Telescope
    Monitoring of traffic through network telescopes, or portions of routed IP address space on which little or no legitimate traffic exists.
    The Information Marketplace for Policy and Analysis of Cyber-risk & Trust (IMPACT) project provides vetted researchers with current network operational data.
