Our paper, “Route Flap Damping Made Usable”, authored by C. Pelsser, O. Maennel, P. Mohapatra, R. Bush and K. Patel, has been accepted for publication at PAM 2011.
Here is a link to the presentation on RFD that I gave at cisco’s NAG.
The CFP for the ACM CoNEXT ‘10 Student Workshop is out !
I just updated my professional webpage with the computer network’s 2010 paper. I also added some links to earlier publications.
Lately, I’ve been looking at solutions to avoid correctness issues that may arise in iBGP. These issues are explained in Tim Griffin’s et al., Sigcomm 2002′s paper.
In Pelsser_DRS_IEICE_200903, I proposed a solution relying on an overlay of distributed servers that compute routes on behalf of the routers. Today, each router computes for every prefix its own routes, based on a limited visibility of the routes. In this proposal, we rely on a different distribution of the route computation. Each server has full visibility of the routes for a subset of the prefixes. A server computes for its subset of the prefixes, the route to be used by every router of the domain. The server performs a per-router computation. Full routing visibility at the node performing route computation ensures iBGP correctness.
A presentation describing this proposal can be found here.
In March, I presented Laurent Vanbever’s work called Customized BGP Route Selection (CRS) at the WIDE camp. This work is about using BGP MPLS/VPNs to advertise neighbor-specific BGP routes.
The presentation can be found here.
We took the opportunity of Tim Griffin, Olaf Maennel and Despoina Perouli’s visit at IIJ to organize a BGP workshop. We had very interesting discussions with local operators and researchers. The presentations can be found here http://www.attn.jp/maz/p/c/bgpworkshop200904/.

Here is a reference to an all public position article from Olivier Bonaventure. The article is on the enforcement of Internet quota by Internet Service Providers. The article is in French. It highlights the dangers of quota on network neutrality. Dangers arise when these quotas are not applied indifferently to all services.
