Meet CAIDA – The Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis

leave a comment »

Pretty much all of us use the Internet not thinking about what happens underneath.  Everyone should at least recognize, and even appreciate, what it takes to run all this.

Check out CAIDA

The Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) is a collaborative undertaking among organizations in the commercial, government, and research sectors aimed at promoting greater cooperation in the engineering and maintenance of a robust, scalable global Internet infrastructure

Mission statement

CAIDA investigates practical and theoretical aspects of the Internet in order to:

  • provide insight into the macroscopic function of Internet infrastructure, behavior, usage, and evolution,
  • foster a collaborative environment in which data can be acquired, analyzed, and (as appropriate) shared,
  • improve the integrity of the field of Internet science,
  • inform science, technology, and communications public policies.
