Routing research at CAIDA pursues discovery of new paradigms for interdomain routing algorithms and protocols. We seek to collect and analyze the best available Internet topology and routing data to support Internet topology modeling and simulation.
Originally developed at MIT ANA, the Spoofer project to assess macroscopic trends in IPv4 source address filtering, e.g., of private or bogon addresses, which should not be exiting appropriately configured networks.
Our data collection efforts support the scientific Internet research community in the process of validating their models, simulations, or theories. The following CAIDA datasets are available for researchers.
- AS Adjacencies
- AS Relationships
- AS Taxonomy
- Router Adjacencies
- Internet Topology Data Kit (ITDK)
- Raw Topology Traces
- AS Growth. An analysis of advertised Autonomous System (AS) growth trends in different regional registries.
