There is an increasing need to quickly and efficiently learn network distances, in terms of metrics such as latency or bandwidth, between Internet hosts. For example, Internet content providers often place data and server mirrors throughout the Internet to improve access latency for clients, and it is necessary to direct clients to the nearest mirrors based(More)
Destination-based forwarding in traditional IP routers has not been able to take full advantage of multiple paths that frequently exist in Internet Service Provider Networks. As a result, the networks may not operate efficiently, especially when the traffic patterns are dynamic. This paper describes a multipath adaptive traffic engineering mechanism, called(More)
Internet Service Providers and infrastructural companies often employ mirrors of popular content to decrease client download time and server load. Due to the immense scale of the Internet and decentralized administration of the networks, companies have a limited number of sites (relative to the size of the Internet) where they can place mirrors. Mirrors of(More)
Network research often involves the evaluation of new application designs, system architectures, and protocol implementations. Due to the immense scale of the Internet, deploying an Internet-wide system for the purpose of experimental study is nearly impossible. Instead, researchers evaluate their designs using generated random network topologies. In this(More)
IP spoofing has been exploited by Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks to (1) conceal flooding sources and localities in flooding traffic, and (2) coax legitimate hosts into becoming reflectors, redirecting and amplifying flooding traffic. Thus, the ability to filter spoofed IP packets near victims is essential to their own protection as well as to(More)
IP spoofing has often been exploited by Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks to: 1) conceal flooding sources and dilute localities in flooding traffic, and 2) coax legitimate hosts into becoming reflectors, redirecting and amplifying flooding traffic. Thus, the ability to filter spoofed IP packets near victim servers is essential to their own(More)
The IDMaps project aims to provide a distance map of the Internet from which relative distances between hosts on the Internet can be gauged [1]. Many distributed systems and applications can benefit from such a distance map service, for example, a common method to improve user perceived performance of the Internet is to place data and server mirrors closer(More)
