Global Network Interference Detectionover the RIPE Atlas Network
2014 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Existing censorship measurement platforms frequentlysuffer from poor adoption, insufficient geographic coverage, and scalability problems. In order to outline ananalytical framework and data collection needs for futureubiquitous measurements initiatives, we build on top ofthe existent and widely-deployed RIPE Atlas platform.In particular, we propose methods for monitoring thereachability of vital services through an algorithm thatbalances timeliness, diversity, and cost. We then use Atlas to investigate blocking events in Turkey and Russia.Our measurements identify under-examined forms of interference and provide evidence of cooperation betweena well-known blogging platform and government authorities for purposes of blocking hosted content.
