Vasileios Giotsas, UCSD/CAIDA

I'm a researcher at CAIDA. My interests include the measurement and analysis of the Internet interconnection and peering ecosystem at different levels of granularity, the resilience of the critical Internet infrastructures during outages and attacks, and the development of tools that facilitate the research and engineering communities. I earned my Ph.D in Communications Networks and my Master in Data Communications, Networks and Distributed Systems from University College London (UCL), and my Bachelor in Computer Science from the University of Piraeus in Greece.
Abstract: Looking glasses (LG) servers enhance our visibility into Internet connectivity and performance by offering a set of distributed vantage points that allow both data plane and control plane measurements. However, the lack of input and output standardization and limitations in querying frequency have hindered the development of automated measurement tools that would allow systematic use of LGs. In this paper we introduce Periscope, a publicly-accessible overlay that unifies LGs into a single platform and automates the discovery and use of LG capabilities. Periscope can handle large bursts of requests, with an intelligent controller coordinating multiple concurrent user queries without violating the various LG querying rate limitations. I show that Periscope significantly extends our view of Internet topology with over 2,000 vantage points in 478 cities.
