That's a shame.
Just to clarify from an APRICOT Programme committee point of view. We
encourage people who think they have something worth presenting that they
should submit an abstract within the CFP period. The authors can then work
with the programme committee as the material becomes available.
It seems reasonable to assume that an abstract for some of your research
would have been available in October.
We find thats a great way to ensure that material gets presented.

Hi NZNOG community:
Some of you know me, I'm Sebastian Castro, manager for the technical
research group at NZRS.

Infact - I would have loved to seen them at the conference.
The main reason why that material wasn't submitted for consideration to
NZNOG is because it didn't exist or it wasn't ready by the call for
papers deadline, which was October 20th. Specifically, the BGP Map was
in final stages of development, the DNS data analysis didn't exist
because it is work from one of our Summer Interns (Aaron Craig), and the
Data Service is an idea we've been maturing in the last 2-3 months as
part of a twist in the development of the National Broadband Map.
Whenever has been possible or relevant, NZRS has presented their work at
NZNOG and we regularly attend or get involved at different capacities,
like assisting with DNSSEC workshop the past two years.

As for the papers being at nznog, the main pitch of this quite
low-key event has been to university researchers, rather than
technical community participants. It's a good idea to share this
set of discussions with a wider community - I hope you agree.
The following are very much of interest to the NZNOG community, and
other NZNOG attendees from APNIC and ICANN. In fact Broadband Map
was much discussed by a number of the ISPs in attendance. DNS is a
mainstay of NZNOG, and Internet topology is something I personally

The NZRS data service is a collection of over 100 spatial and
aspatial data sets related to broadband and Internet coverage in New
Zealand. The service brings together disparate data sets. The
majority of data sets are geospatial and accessible via a number of
web services. This presentation will introduce the following:
Data sets available via the service
The data collection and collation process
Spatial analysis using the service
Presentation of the data and analysis online
The presentation will include an example of accessing the service,
identifying residential broadband availability and presenting it
Note: This data service is the base of a project we've been working,
the National Broadband Map

Jumping into a large pool of data
NZRS has access to over two years and half's worth of DNS data from
the .nz namespace. There are many things lurking within and we've
been interested in developing ways to detect malicious or weird
behavior. This presentation will talk about our successes and
failures in trying to summarise and classify behavior in this
dataset, and the techniques we've been using.
The presentation will include discussion about:
Challenges in reading the (very messy) DNS data
The popularity of political party websites throughout election
yearand how it changed with respect to real-life events
Heuristics for identifying botnet activity – especially
algorithmically-generated domains – and the success and application
of these techniques
Anomalies and candidate botnet behaviour that we've found lurking in
Anything interesting or novel we've

Mapping NZ Internet topology
Although the topic of mapping Internet topology is not new, and
several attempts have been done, in recent years the interest of
mapping Internet at country level have appeared. Generally those
attempts are driven by economic interest (understand the market
inside a country). NZRS has put some effort on mapping the NZ
Internet at the BGP and IP level, to understand their structure and
shed some light into policy discussions in which InternetNZ is
This presentation covers:
Methodology for mapping Internet at the BGP level: RouteViews, IX
and AS relationships
A demonstration of the NZ BGP Internet map
Methodology for mapping Internet at the IP level.
NOTE: The IP Topology Map is work in progress
