Measuring IPv6 Adoption
In his latest paper, Measuring IPv6 Adoption, Verisign Labs’ principal scientist Eric Osterweil collaborates with Jacob Czyz of the University of Michigan, Mark Allman of the International Computer Science Institute, Jing Zhang and Michael Bailey from the University of Michigan, and Scott Iekel-Johnson of Arbor Networks, to provide compelling research on the IPv6 adoption rates. The team explores 12 metrics using 10 global-scale datasets to create the longest and broadest measurement of IPv6 adoption to date.
UCLA's Computer Science Department is a center for computer science research, covering such diverse areas as artificial intelligence; architecture; computational biology; information and data management; networks; software systems, theory; and vision and graphic.

New from Verisign Labs: What’s in your attack surface?
The concept of “attack surface” has been batted around in the security community for a long time. At a high-level, we all get the gist of it: the more exposed a system is to attackers (attack surface) the more risk it is probably exposing to those who depend on it, but what does that mean? Recently, my colleagues Danny McPherson, Lixia Zhang and I decided that it would be useful to have a definition and a technique that would let people illustrate and quantify systems’ attack surfaces. Specifically, we asked the questions: how do we measure attack surfaces, how do we clearly understand the exposure of our systems’ attack surfaces, and to understand these things where should we start?Read More

New from Verisign Labs: Measuring IPv6 Adoption
IPv4 is the common thread that has held the Internet together since its very early years, and, thus, it is both the most important and most widely deployed networking protocol in existence. As the world rapidly runs out of available IPv4 address space, there has been a major movement to transition the Internet to the IPv6 protocol with its vastly larger address space.Read More
