Today, the Internet is part of the critical infrastructure of most nations as it has increasingly replaced dedicated data networks for financial transactions, communications and security operations and thus becoming essential to continuity of these services. I believe that this network-dependency together with the Internet’s ubiquitousness offers a great opportunity to researchers to learn about the real world by actively and passively measuring the Internet.
