"Reverse engineering the Internet: inter-domain topology and ab/use"

(Vortrag im Rahmen der "Distinguished Lecture Series Spring 2006" des Max Planck Instituts für Software-Systeme)

As the Internet is a human designed system one should have full knowledge about its operations and how it is used. Yet this is not the case as it is a prime example of a complex distributed software system that is managed in a decentral manner. With regards to how the Internet is managed I will present how to extract an inter-domain topology model that captures the route diversity of the Internet. With regards to how the Internet is used and abused by its users I will present extensions to an network intrusion detection system that enable us to perform dynamic application-layer protocol analysis and show how a time machine can be used for security forensics and network trouble-shooting.
