The fourth CAIDA/WIDE Workshop will be held on August 6-7, 2004 (by invitation only) in SDSC, La Jolla, CA. The main areas of the Workshop are: IPv6/IPv4 topology studies and DNS. It will also cover miscellaneous research and technical topics of mutual interest for CAIDA and WIDE participants.
Place: San Diego Supercomputer Center, UCSD, La Jolla, CA
CAIDA/WIDE CollaborationThe objectives of informal joint CAIDA/WIDE workshops are:
- to discuss Internet measurement analysis activities going on in each organization;
- to explore opportunities for joint collaboration on projects;
- to continue data exchange.

August 7 (Saturday)
9:30-11:00 DNS measurements and modeling
- Yuji Sekiya, Passive and active DNS measurements
- Duane Wessels, Is your caching resolver polluting the Internet? (presented at Sigcomm 2004)
- Nevil Brownlee, NeTraMet: Recent developments in a production measurement environment
General discussion: future directions of DNS research and collaboration
- automated day-to-day comparisons of DNS RTTs at several metering sites might provide a way to observe how stable the anycast root servers are (by spotting changes from one anycast server to another).
- is it possible to decide whether a DNS request is to a top-level, second-level, etc. nameserver, by observing the sequence of DNS requests issued by a local cacheing nameserver? This would be a hard problem to solve, but the solution would facilitate metering ccTLD servers in NeTraMet.
- can we get the WIDE NeTraMet meter(s) to post their data on the CAIDA web site? How could we make the DNS RTT web pages more useful?
- update on IPv6 query type spikes seen at F-root.
