CAIDA DNS-ITR project "Improving the Integrity of Domain Name System (DNS) Monitoring and Protection" (NSF grant SCI-0427144) started in 2004 and concluded in 2009. Our primary objective was to provide much needed data in support of the DNS research. The data collection and analysis methods, services and tools resulting from this project are essential to protecting the robustness and advancing the development of the global Internet.
Principal Investigator: kc claffy
Funding source: NSF 0427144 Period of performance: September 15, 2004 - August 31, 2009.
The DNS-ITR project ended on August 31, 2009.

This proposal helps to address National and Homeland Security recommendations by the President’s Critical Infrastructure Protection Board to develop a ‘cyberspace network operations center (NOC)’. The long-term mission of this proposal - to provide data needed to support DNS research - also has relevance to the real Internet and how it supports economic prosperity and a vibrant civil society. Indeed, the data, models, communications analysis, and simulation functionalities to be provided have the potential to dramatically improve the quality of the lens with which we view the Internet as a whole.
