As a result of daily attacks against a Further Education College in Wales, a connection was noticed between changing DNS entries and the attacked IP address. Using innovative DNS responses inspired by GeoDNS and logging all requests to the authoritative server, it has been possible to trace the source of DDoS and spoofed flood attacks.

What are the drivers, new service models, risks and opportunities for such (r)evolutionary approach?

Introduction to RDL
RDL is a high level Routing Documentation Language capable of describing both inter- and intra-AS route filtering and announcements, and is part of a larger routing toolkit project initiated by NLnetLabs in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. RDL describes BGP and router topology using an intuitive "curly brace" syntax, and utilizes class-oriented, lexical scope to group, assign, and associate object attributes, including filter rules, thereby greatly reducing the text volume needed to describe any given autonomous system. RDL can be compiled to actual configuration for Cisco, Juniper, and BIRD, and thus serves two purposes: documentation for existing routing setup (enabling eg computerised verification of various aspects), and automated generation of router configurations from a high-level specification.

CD-GAIN: Measuring Traffic Gains from Peer-assisted Content Delivery of Long Duration Video-on-Demand content
Efficient delivery of video content is a critical problem. Video traffic now accounts for 57% of all consumer traffic on the Internet and is forecasted to reach 69% by 2017. To handle these massive volumes of traffic content delivery networks (CDNs) are turning to clients for assistance, creating hybrid peer-assisted content delivery systems. In practice, peer-assisted distribution of video-on-demand content faces a number of design obstacles which include: the need of localizing peer-to-peer traffic within ISPs (isp-friendliness), reluctance of users to participate in redistributing the content (partial participation) and necessity to match users with similar bitrate requirements (bitrate stratification).
