A Better Do-Not-Probe List

May 6, 2021, 1:30 AM
Standard Presentation Online Workshop OARC 35 Day 1


Matthew Pounsett (Nimbus)



For many years, OARC has been operating a Do Not Probe list, which is an advisory for researchers about network operators who would prefer not to be research subjects. For the last few years, OARC has been looking for someone with the resources to improve the way the list operates to take it over; in the coming months it will be taken over by Nimbus Operations (an OARC Supporter organization).

The presentation has two goals:

  1. give researchers a heads up about the list moving
  2. request feedback about proposed changes from researchers who use the list, and operators who may want to list their networks
