Title: Analyzing the Internet Stability in Presence of Disasters
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Aniello Castiglione, Ph.D. Department of Computer Science, University of Salerno, Italy
Abstract: The Internet is today one of the most critical infrastructure for the modern, information-based, e- Society. In addition, most of the critical infrastructure also rely on the Internet for communication purposes. Thus, the stability and survivability of the Internet are fundamental, especially in presence of catastrophic events which carry heavy societal and financial impacts. In this talk, it is analyzed the stability of the inter-domain routing system during some large-scale catastrophic events that affected the connectivity of massive parts of the IP address space, with the objective of acquiring information about degradation of service and recovery capabilities.
As an example, have been analyzed the effects of the earthquake in Taiwan in December 2006, the earthquake in Japan in March 2011 and the blackout in US in September 2011. Those catastrophic events have been selected for this study because they are well documented, and usually there is a wealth of information related to their effects. After gathering the BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) statistics and preprocessing data, the number of routes and geolocalization of IP addresses that became unreachable have been studied. Such data show how catastrophic events impact on the reachability of network prefixes, the extent of damages to the Internet global connectivity, the geographical location of the most heavily struck addresses, and the time needed to recover.
