The Virtual Center for Network and Security Data is a unique effort
to organize, structure, and combine the efforts of the network security
researcher community with the efforts of the data measurement and collection
community. Under the umbrella of the Protected Repository for the Defense of
Infrastructure against Cyber Threats
( PREDICT) our virtual center provides a
common framework for managing datasets from various data providers.
IPv6 Adoption -
We are gathering and analyzing multiple large sources of longitudinal
IPv6 adoption data in order to gauge deployment and usage of the
burgeoning protocol via a global and broad perspective. This is
the most comprehensive such study ever conducted.
IPv6 Background Radiation and Dynamic Dark Space -
We are studying traffic to unreachable IPv6 address space using a
methodology that gives us insight not just into traditional background
radiation/network telescope/darknet data but also into address space
that dynamically becomes externally dark due to control plane
failures or is dark due to deliberate lack of route announcement by
assignees. This is the largest IPv6 dark address study to date.
