TMA'23: Best Paper Award
Best Paper Award at TMA 2023
Our publication "Target Acquired? Evaluating Target Generation Algorithms for IPv6" has been awarded with the Best Paper Award at the Network Traffic Measurement and Analysis Conference (TMA 2023).
The publication is a collaboration with Oliver Gasser from the Max Planck Institute for Informatics.
In our work we investigated biases in the IPv6 Hitlist Service , a service maintained by our chair, which offers active IPv6 addresses to Internet researchers. This service is used to run measurements in the IPv6 address space and can also function as input for Target Generation Algorithms (TGAs). We found that being aware of and filtering a bias towards certain address categories can reduce unnecessary scan overhead and limit the bias in the addresses generated by TGAs.
