Abstract

As the Internet becomes more crucial to the world’s economy, determining relative connectivity to a given location becomes more important. Associating a connectivity metric with a physical location can be of use to organizations looking to optimize their Internet traffic. Dynamic routing protocols and ambiguous mappings between an IP address and a real host make the task non- trivial. The Internet connected project investigates the effectiveness of DNS cache manipulation and traceroute as a means of mapping point-to-point Internet connectivity from specific geographic locations in the United States.
