The Network Forensics problem of IPv4

Although not directly on the subject IPv6, we absolutely need to draw your attention to a great presentation from Geoff Huston (APNIC) on Forensic Tracing in the Internet during APRICOT 2017. This relates to the pervasive use of Carrier Grade NATs as a means of extending the useable life of IPv4 on the Internet, and the implications for Read more…

APNIC Labs launches new tool for comparing IPv4 and IPv6 performance

There’s another interesting article from Geoff Huston (APNIC) published on CircleID, analysing claims that IPv6 can offer inferior performance compared to IPv4. Geoff has talked about this before, but APNIC Labs have now developed an online reporting tool showing the relative performances of IPv6 compared to IPv4 for nearly 150 countries and territories. The tool features Read more…

More on IPv6 Performance

Last week, we highlighted a presentation given by Geoff Huston at RIPE 71 where he discussed the performance and reliability of IPv6. His conclusions were that if you can establish a connection, then IPv4 and IPv6 appear to have comparable performance, although currently the odds of establishing the connection still favour IPv4 for various reasons. RIPE Labs have followed-up Read more…
