angelo_audio_experimentsWe will design sender and receiver programs using socket programming, a standard technique of programming that is implemented over the Internet. These programs will then be deployed over a number of selected nodes across multiple continents. The sender programs will send data packets from audio clips, and the receiver programs will save the data and echo back. We will analyze the packet loss and delay variation at the receiver as well as the sender after it has received the echo. We will then play back the audio files to determine how the above factors adversely affect audio quality. We will use audio quality measurement tools, such as Perceptual Evaluation of Speech Quality (PESQ), to objectively determine how the quality of the audio is degraded under adverse conditions. The experiments will repeat each day on regular intervals over a number of weeks in order to gather substantial amount of data for analysis.

darmstadtple_SalityMonitorThis thesis aims to reverse engineer windows-based botnets specifically P2P-based malware. After reverse engineering them, the targeted P2P botnet should be monitored using two different approaches: Crawling and Sensor Nodes. Crawling is an action of iteratively requesting the neighborlist of bots within a botnet, while Sensor nodes disguises as a bot within the botnet to monitor the incoming connections. By conducting monitoring, the thesis wraps up by reporting the prevalence of the investigated botnet-malware and the dynamics that are observed within the botnet.

dcetut_Multipath_P2PThe main aim of this projects is to design, implement and deploy independent nodes, simultaneously networked in a peer-to-peer manner over heterogenous, independent network connections. A node may possess multiple links of varying characteristics to simulate fixed, wireless and virtual interfaces found in common mobile devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets. It may also be connected across various application-specific overlay or social networks and have the ability to connect across non-IP transport networks. Active interconnected nodes are expected to model future scenarios and behaviour of devices and sensors in a city wide configuration. The level of traffic will be on average very low, with occasional bursts typically not exceeding a few seconds (or a few tens of seconds, depending on the available network bandwidth).

elteple_sonomaI'm working on a topology visualization project. My main task is locating internet hosts (especially "inter-ETOMIC" routers) in Europe using several geolocation techniques like topology discovering (based on traceroute), RTT and precise inter-ETOMIC end-to-end measurements, etc. In the ETOMIC infrastructure we have only a few landmarks (measurement nodes with known location). I want to increase the number of landmarks by using PlanetLab nodes. In my view this can improve the accuracy of geolocation.

gt_tarunThis is a long term measurement study with an aim to identify gap in the current video server selection methodology. The planet lab nodes would act as vantage points and will be used to gather the performance data of video servers hosting the same content. Specifically, each planetlab node will download same video chunks from different servers in a round robin manner. The idea is to compare the performance of the video server selected by the DNS server vis-a-vis other video servers and check if there existed a “better” server.

inria_nepiNEPI will initially be deployed in planetlab for testing of its planetlab module. NEPI can model and deploy varied experiments, but, initially, experiments will imply negligible bandwidth and involve only planetlab nodes, usually just pinging among them to perform easily verifiable tests, so there should be no outwardly visible activity. Eventually, NEPI will start modelling more realistic workloads, which should include an experiment probing several network paths to find packet dropouts along the route. The experiment will be carried with internal traffic first, but an instance involving the internet as a whole is expected as well. We are currently using this slice for multicast streaming tests. As such, it can generate quite some traffic, and be host to several virtual interfaces. Streaming videos used are all public domain or licensed under the CC, and they're not intended for public performance anyway, they're only a means of testing multicast overlays.

inria_overlaysecThis work deals with the security of overlay networks; It aims to provide a quantification of the impact of malicious overlay activity. We run application layer multicast overlays, to analyse the main features of these applications, and identify potential vulnerabilities.

We will also implement countermeasures, based on statistics observed locally by each participant in the overlay.

irisaple_HEAPHEAP, HEterogeneity Aware gossip Protocol: Gossip-based information dissemination protocols are considered easy to deploy, scalable and resilient to network dynamics. Load-balancing is inherent in these protocols as the dissemination work is evenly spread among all nodes. Yet, large-scale distributed systems are usually heterogeneous with respect to network capabilities such as bandwidth. As such, gossip's blind load balancing may significantly hamper the performance of the data dissemination. HEAP dynamically leverages the most capable nodes by increasing their fanouts, while decreasing by the same proportion those of less capable nodes. This preserves the simple and proactive nature of gossip, while significantly improving its effectiveness. The goal of the slice is to test HEAP in the context of a video streaming application and to compar it against state-of-the-art streaming platforms.

isi_antThere exist networks in the Internet that are sensitive to probing and, therefore, they filter packets originated from frequent probers.

istple_fastrankApplications like radio or video broadcast in the Internet require the real-time dissemination of multimedia content to many users, a task known as live-streaming. The protocols that support need to be highly scalable in order to serve very large numbers of users. To reduce the costs and avoid bottlenecks at the provider, live-streaming can be implemented with the cooperation of the end-users, that may voluntarily offer some of their computing and networking resources to help in the dissemination process. Unfortunately, not all volunteers are altruistic, and some nodes may have incentives to violate the protocol to increase their own benefit (for instance, by avoiding forwarding some packets to save upload bandwidth). Many mechanisms have been designed to cope with rational behaviour in live-streaming applications, such as monitoring and punishment mechanics to discourage selfish behavior. The cost of these mechanisms is, typically, a function of the ratio of altruistic/rational nodes in the system; the larger the fraction of rational nodes, the more expensive the mechanism is. In this work we are interested in looking for mechanisms that can automatically adapt to the ratio of rational vs altruistic nodes, to minimize the operational costs in the good cases.

iupui_ndtThe Network Diagnostic Tool (NDT) is a client/server program that provides network configuration and performance testing to a users desktop or laptop computer. The system is composed of a client program (command line or java applet) and a pair of server programs (a webserver and a testing/analysis engine). Both command line and web-based clients communicate with a Web100-enhanced server to perform these diagnostic functions. Multi-level results allow novice and expert users to view and understand the test results.

iupui_npadNetwork Path and Application Diagnosis is focused on developing diagnostics that mitigate the effects of "symptom scaling". The "end-to-end network performance debugging" problem is difficult because the only symptom of nearly all flaws is reduced performance. Furthermore that one symptom is scaled by RTT, such that conventional diagnostics typically yield false pass results for local tests. Under the NPAD project we assembled tools and resources to enable people to quickly diagnose and correct the majority flaws that affect users connected to high speed networks.

mit_hiccups_bauerTCP HICCUPS (Handshake-based Integrity Check of Critical Underlying Protocol Semantics) is a new TCP design to be middlebox cooperative. Using error corrected integrity mechanisms, HICCUPS reveals packet header manipulation to both sides of a TCP. With visibility into end-to-end behavior, a TCP can selectively enable or disable performance enhancing options. Expected traffic: we use planetlab nodes to source TCP HICCUPS packets containing a variety of TCP options, and ECN capabilities. These packets are sent with HICCUPS integrity to remote end-points (currently Amazon EC2 servers running the HICCUPS kernel) on both common (22, 80, 443) and non-standard ports (34343). We use these ports because middlebox packet header manipulation exhibits port-specific behaviors we wish to test. More details on the TCP HICCUPS protocol: http://www.cmand.org/hiccups/

moscowstate_monitoring_newThis slice is created for monitoring network vulnerabilities which can be used by attackers to perform distributed denial of service attacks. Such attacks constitute a serious problem because they may cause severe damage to the network being attacked. The list of vulnerabilities we are interested in includes BGP route loops, default route configuration errors and DDoS amplifiers. BGP route loops and default route configuration errors are two important types of the traffic loops. The latter is a network problem when packets cyclically follow the same route until their Time To Live expires. Traffic loops cause a serious vulnerability which can be used to amplify the amount of traffic in several times and cause bandwidth consumption. DDoS amplifiers are vulnerabilities which can be used by attackers to produce large amounts of network traffic. There exist at least two types of them, namely, ICMP and DNS amplifiers. Combined with IP spoofing, DDoS amplifiers can be used for bandwidth consumption attacks. The expected traffic consists of ICMP echo requests and of ICMP and TCP/80 traceroute probes.

rnp_DP_UFPEPlanetLab currently consists of more than a thousand nodes spread around the world. As shown in previous works such as CoMon[1] and SWORD[2], it is necessary to monitor these nodes and the institutions that hosted these nodes in order to discover information about resources available, capacity and aspects related to performability. However, what we have seen is a lack of studies about dependability metrics for PlanetLab nodes and sites. Dependability aspects are essential in order to perform reliable experiments and to test new technologies with a virtualized infrastructure. In this way, our goal is to monitor dependability attributes and discover information about reliability, availability, faults and threats in the PlanetLab. All data collected will be available through a public interface with the intention of providing information to improve the PlanetLab platform.

The scope of the project is obtaining high quality traces of users' participation sessions in large scale distributed systems, for use as input to evaluate novel solutions to those systems. There are various techniques that can be applied to obtain such traces; for example, one can take periodic snapshots of the system, and use them to build the traces. Although generic enough for adoption in a broad range of contexts, it has an important issue: for numerous reasons, snapshots may fail to capture some online users. As a consequence, those missing users may be erroneously regarded as being offline. In our research, we investigate means for detecting those failures in a given set of snapshots. We have currently focused on a probabilistic approach for estimating failure probabilities, and used a set of rules for determining which snapshots have failed with a high probability and correcting them. In order to assess the feasibility of our solution, we intend to collect traces of users' participation sessions in such systems. It should be highlighted that the experiments require a non-negligible fraction of CPU and network bandwidth resources.

stevens_hubbleThis project investigates routing inefficiencies for clients connecting to a multitude of cloud servers for streaming services, including live streaming and online gaming. The end goal is to create a renewed understanding of Internet's routing policies and path selection, and understand how these effect the performance of the said streaming services. Beyond creating an empirical understanding, the next step is to create alternative route selection strategies via overlay networks and content replication to improve application performance. The project will typically involve experiments which make use of numerous path diagnostic such as TCP-ping, ICMP-ping, and traceroute; as well as simple UDP sender/receiver code. While path-diagnostics will hardly generate any real traffic, the UDP send/receive will generate moderate traffic that will be well within the PlanetLab requirement bounds.

tuberlinple_schienIm Sympact Projekt in Zusammenarbeit der University of Bristol und der Zeitung "The Guardian" wird die Nachhaltigkeit von Digitalen Medien erforscht (http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainability/blog/media-digital-environmental-impacts-research-project). Ein besseres Verständnis des Energieverbrauchs beim Konsum von Onlineinhalten ist uns dabei besonders wichtig. Der wachsende Anteil von Videos, Text und Bildern der von "Content Delivery Networks" wie zum Beispiel Akamai, Level 3 oder Limelight dezentral und nicht von den Servers der eigentlichen Anbieter der Inhalte geliefert wird hat unseren Erwartungen nach einen geringeren Energieabdruck. Diese Energie ist abhängig von der Entfernung zwischen Nutzer und dem ihm dynamisch von Authorative DNS Server des CDN ausgewiesenen Content Server. 2007 hat Phillipa Gill [1] ein Traceroute von 50 Servern. Mittlerweile sind CDNs zu einem integralen Bestandteil des Internets geworden. Akamai behauptet von sich 15-30% des Internet Datenverkehr zu liefern [2] und Level 3 ist CDN Dienstleister für Netflix, dass zur Primetime 29,7% [3] aller Daten im US Amerikanischen Netz liefert. Wir versuchen mit einem erneuten Trace von verschiedenen CDN Servern für verschiedene Onlinemedien aus verschiedenen Startpunkten ein besseres Verständnis für die Dichte des CDN Overlay networks zu gewinnen.

uba_conexdatThrough the platform FLAME we will measure some network characteristics between PlanetLab's nodes. The FLAME platform is based on the distribution of measurement agents among some network nodes. Such agents send and receive probe packets in response to commands from a central manager. Users issue such commands to the central manager with a command line-based console. The agents return the collected measurement data to the central manager, which publishes such data in a standardized way on a central repository, simplifying the management and further analysis of such data. All communication among the 3 components is based on the XMPP protocol. The FLAME platform offers its users active measurement primitives to be executed in the agents. Users can use the console to prototype active measurement tools upon such primitives in a rapid, practical, and efficient manner. The central manager is responsible for deploying such tools and starting their execution in the agents. We belong as students to Complex networks and data communications group.

ucb_upsWe try to answer a seemingly simple question: Is there a universal packet scheduling algorithm? More precisely, we analyze (both theoretically and empirically) whether there is a single packet scheduling algorithm that, at a network-wide level, can perfectly replay the results of any given packet scheduling algorithm. We find that in general the answer is "no". However, we show theoretically that the classical Least Slack Time First (LSTF) scheduling algorithm comes closest to being a universal packet scheduler and demonstrate empirically that LSTF can closely, though not perfectly, replay a wide range of scheduling algorithms in realistic network settings. We then evaluate whether LSTF can be used in practice to meet various network-wide objectives by looking at three popular performance metrics (mean FCT, tail packet delays and fairness); we find that LSTF performs comparable to the state-of-the-art for each of them. Our theoretical results show that the difficulty of replaying a schedule is a function of the number of congestion points per packet. We would like to do some measurement study on planet-lab to get some idea on how many congestion points occur in a packet's path in a wide-area network.

upmc_2tierVivaldiWe propose a Two-Tier approach based on the clustering of nodes, to mitigate the impact of Triangle Inequality Violations (TIVs) on distance predictions, we would like to show how nodes cluster themselves based on their own coordinates. In this approach, each node uses two set of coordinates. Therefore, coordinates computed at the lower (resp. higher) level of clusters are called local coordinates (resp. global coordinates). Within their cluster, nodes use more accurate local coordinates to predict intra-cluster distances, and keep using global coordinates when predicting longer distances towards nodes belonging to foreign clusters. To construct such cluster, each node relies on coordinates provided by their direct neighbors and the neighbors' neighbors (i.e., node's 2-hop neighbors), but also on measurements towards a potential existing cluster. Each PlanetLab node will run an instance of Vivaldi upon an ANA Framework. This work is related to the ANA project

uw_failuresThis slice is being used to perform measurements as part of iPlane (an information plane for the Internet) and Hubble (monitoring wide-area failures). iPlane maps the Internet's topology by performing traceroutes. This slice is used to perform ICMP ping measurements to assess reachability. Measurement rounds last ~ 6 minutes. During any particular round, a destination should receive probes from at most 15 PlanetLab hosts, and each host should send at most 2 ping packets to a particular destination.

uw_geoloc4This slice is being used to perform measurements as part of the reverse traceroute project. When measuring a path, reverse traceroute needs to choose a set of optimal vantage points from which to issue probes. To help this process, this slice generates a weekly "map" of the Internet, which is then used to predict which vantage points will be in close proximity to a given prefix. To generate the map, we issue record route probes to a set of targets in record-route responsive prefixes. We take care to leave out addresses in private and multicast address spaces, those that do not match any prefix in the RouteViews BGP snapshot, and those in address blocks for which we have received complaints at any point in time. We also take care to probe interfaces in a random order from each PlanetLab site, and to spread the measurements over several days so as to ensure any particular address block does not receive several successive probes. Each target will receive at most 2 record route probes per site per week, for a maximum of ~1400 probes in any given week.
