On the Eyeshots of BGP Vantage Points
Source: Tsinghua University
The publicly available BGP Vantage Points (VPs) have been heavily used by the research community to build the Internet Autonomous System (AS) level topology, which is a key input to many applications, such as routing protocol design, performance evaluation and network security issues. However, a detailed study on the eyeshots of these VPs has received little attention before. In this paper, the authors inspect these VPs carefully. Specifically, they do a measurement work to evaluate the effect of various factors on the eyeshot of each individual VP as well as the relationship between the eye-shots of different VPs.
