IETF 94 Plenary: Measurement-Driven Protocol Engineering

Engineering decisions about protocols to deploy in the Internet should be based on relevant data about the environment they will face. Protocols should be designed for the common occurrences, with an understanding of the risks of uncommon ones. Measurement can provide the insight to know the difference. The IETF 94 technical plenary talk, given by Brian Trammell of ETH Zürich and the IAB, and Alberto Dainotti of CAIDA, will explore the challenges of scaling up Internet measurement to provide information useful for protocol engineers, examining this from two different angles: the measurement of Internet "path transparency" (whether certain protocols and features work unimpeded on certain paths through the Internet) as well as the understanding of interdomain topology and BGP dynamics.

About the Speakers:

Alberto Dainotti is a Research Scientist at CAIDA (Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis), University of California San Diego, USA. In 2008 he received his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering and Systems at the Department of Computer Engineering and Systems of University of Napoli "Federico II", Italy. His main research interests are in the field of Internet measurement and network security, with a focus on the analysis of large-scale Internet events. He co-authored several peer-reviewed papers published at conferences and in scientific journals and is regularly invited speaker at conferences, workshops, and operational meetings (DARPA, FCC, ISOC, RIPE). In 2012 he was awarded the IRTF Applied Networking Research Prize. He regularly serves for the European Commission and the US National Science Foundation as an independent reviewer of projects of project proposals.

Brian Trammell is a Senior Researcher at the CSG at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich. His primary focus is on network monitoring and measurement, specifically on performance measurement, security monitoring, measurement tools, and privacy issues in measurement and management. Active in the IETF since 2005, he’s co-authored 15 RFCs in the Security and Operations/Management areas, and co-chairs the IP Performance Metrics working group. Prior to his work with CSG, he was Engineering Technical Lead at the CERT Network Situational Awareness group, and a veteran of a variety of short-lived Internet start-ups. He earned a BS in Computer Science from Georgia Tech in 2000.

Thursday Lunch Speaker Series

Day: Thursday, 5 November 2015
Time: 1200-1245
Room: Room 304

Topic: Japan x Internet

Speaker: Jun Murai

Dr. Jun Murai is known as the 'father of the Internet in Japan,' and outside of Japan has also been called the 'Internet samurai.' In 1984 he developed the Japan University UNIX Network (JUNET), the first-ever inter-university network in that nation. In 1988, he founded the Widely Integrated Distributed Environment Project, a Japanese Internet research consortium, for which he continues to serve as a board member. He is a professor and dean of the Faculty of Environment and Information Studies at Keio University, from which he earned his PhD in computer science in 1987. He served as President of the Japan Network Information Center (JPNIC) and as Vice President of the Japanese Internet Association. He served on the Internet Society's Board of Trustees from 1997 to 2000. In 1998, he was appointed as one of nine initial directors of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers and served until June 2003. He won the 2005 Internet Society's Jonathan B. Postel Service Award in recognition of his vision and pioneering work that helped spread the Internet across the Asia Pacific region. He was honored with the 2011 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Internet Award.
