Interdomain Route Forensics

    Analyze past network events in order to disclose source, cause, location and responsibility.

    The Interdomain Routing Forensic Analysis service aims at discovering undisclosed network events by analyzing and relating a huge amount of interdomain routing data. These data are extracted by publicly available sources, and could as well be augmented with private data in order to get more accurate results. Obviously, we are willing to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) regarding the use of private data.

    The results of our analyses can provide details regarding, but not limited to, the presence of obscure network events within the time interval you are interested in, together with their alledged cause and location. More precisely, we will recover the interdomain network status from the data sources, and then we will apply some of our Root Cause Analysis methodologies. The location of the events refers to the AS-level network(s) that can reasonably be held responsible for the specific event. Unfortunately, eBGP data does not allow a finer resolution.

    Accessing the Forensic Analysis service is simple: - just write to This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it and clearly state:

    • your name and surname

    • precise timing information regarding the event you want us to analyze
    • the reason why you are asking for a forensic analysis
