Quantifying Interdependencies of the Logical/Physical Internet Topologies

Research Team Leadership

  • PI: KC Claffy, University of California, San Diego

Project Overview

With the vast majority of modern communication dependent on the public Internet, there is a troubling amount of evidence suggesting that its fundamental architectural underpinnings are fragile. This project will provide an essential baseline to support a variety of quantitative assessments of Internet infrastructure resilience and approaches to mitigate infrastructure weaknesses.
