90-MINUTE TUTORIALS (BGPMON, VIIRS1, RPKI, VIIRS2, DVTS, SDN)

Monitoring and Protecting Internet Routes with BGPmon and ROVER Tutorial -- Dan Massey (ColState U)
8:30-10 am

This tutorial will focus on how to provide BGP routing data to both the research and operations communities. The availability of BGP data has played an essential role in both network operations and network research. In this tutorial, we show how research network data (such as that from APAN, I2, and ESnet) can play an important role in this research and show how research network operators can benefit from the monitoring and security tools. We specifically explore how to both provide data and receive data from the Oregon RouteViews/ColoState BGPmon collection system and show how operators can make use of data services such as ROVER to provide security related alarms and notices. The BGP monitoring project and the ROVER security project both provide live XML data feeds of BGP activity and routing security events (respectively). Part of the tutorial will cover how to access the feeds and explore the real-time data being received. Both sites also have a front-end web/database that allow one to explore the data and we will run analysis of APAN, I2, and ESnet related routing activity.

Mapping Combustion Sources at Night with Soumi NPP VIIRS Data Tutorial -- Chris Elvidge (NOAA-NGDC)
8:30-10 am

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) is an instrument flown on the NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP). Most satellite sensors collect both day and night, but only record data in the solar wavelength regions when the scene is sunlit. In contrast, VIIRS collects data in three solar wavelength bands at night. With sunlight eliminated. combustion sources can be readily detected and measured. NGDC has developed an automated system for global mapping of combustion sources at night based on the detection of emission sources in the M10 (1.61 um) spectral band. The system uses radiances measured in nine spectral bands to confirm the detection and estimate the combustion source temperature and total radiant emissions. The MODTRAN atmospheric correction is parameterized by atmospheric temperature and moisture profiles processed from CrIS and ATMS data collected at the same time as the VIIRS. This workshop will provide an overview algorithms and data products produced, with a focus on gas flares. (Geospatial image products will be overlain in Google Earth in a live demo.)

RPKI-Based BGP Origin Validation Tutorial -- Randy Bush (PSG)
10:30-12 Noon

BGP Origin Validation based on the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) is in production, all RIRs have services, Cisco and Juniper have shipping code, operators are deploying. It protects against accidental mis-origination, the most common routing error we see today. The documents from the sidr working group of the IETF are done and almost all are RFCs, two remain in the queue.

We will explain and demonstrate the work-flow for using the full implementation in open source RPKI software from GUI to running router.

Operators can play with the entire system, end to end. Attendees can create RPKI objects with the GUI and configure routers to deal with valid and invalid routing. The more adventurous sysadmin talented attendee with access to a UNIX, Linux, or MacOSX environment, can start to build and install the open source RPKI software, though the limited time means you will finish later.

Mapping nocturnal lighting with the VIIRS Day/Night Band Tutorial -- Chris Elvidge (NOAA-NGDC)
10:30-Noon

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) is an instrument flown on the NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP). At night the VIIRS collects low light imaging data in a broad visible-near infrared spectral band known as the day/night band (DNB). This capability was designed for the imaging of moonlit clouds at night. In addition to moonlit clouds, the DNB detects light present at the Earth's surface. This includes urban settlements, fires, gas flares, and lit fishing boats. This workshop will provide an overview of the DNB and presentations from groups engaged in product development or use of DNB data. (Geospatial image products will be overlain in Google Earth in a live demo.)

Media Expression Tools: DVTS and Beyond Tutorial -- Kazunori Sugiura (Keio University)
3:00-4:30 pm

This session aims to present and discuss about development, practices, and hands-on, real-time, content-distribution environment technologies originated from the DVTS (Digital Video Transport System). Deployment and contribution of DVTS has enabled practical ways to send high quality video streaming in cost/performance-effective ways. DVTS is now shifting into new implementation: UMECOT (Universal Media Expression, Collaboration and Organization Tool).

Goals of UMECOT is to create a Media Content expression tool to express contents to display output in suitable ways depeding on its screen, process, and network capabilitites. Some of the practical applications based on UMECOT are; Digital Black board, Digital Signage with mobility, Social activity and contents sharing, and merged application using real-time. With some practical demo, practice and hands-on, we will discuss the future development and possibilities in collaboration of UMECOT.

Software Defined Networking with Openflow Tutorial -- Robert Cannistra (Marist College)
1-2:30 pm

In recent years, Software Defined Networking has grown to establish itself as a promising and emerging technology. Since SDN is in its early stages, industry leaders are performing research and development in hopes of progressing the adaptiveness of the protocol in modern networks. More specifically, IBM has partnered with Marist to build an OpenFlow research environment to test features, assess problems, and determine limitations of the OpenFlow protocol. Under the guidance of faculty and engineers, the Marist student team has been working through test cases, programming modules, and ultimately contributing their findings to the open source community. This partnership has provided the student team with an incredibly unique opportunity to contribute to the progression of SDN. (Session will include a demonstration of openflow and a customized application used to test an openflow environment.)

Visualizing Network Data with d3.js and the ESnet Widgets Tutorial -- Jon Dugan (ESnet)
1-2:30 pm

In the process of developing the MyESnet portal, ESnet developed a set of open source widgets which can be used to visualize traffic data and network topologies using the d3.js toolkit. d3.js is a a widely used JavaScript toolkit for visualizing data in web browsers. In this session, users will be introduced to the basics of d3.js, shown how to use the ESnet widgets and given guidance for how to use these tools with their own data. This session will be a hands-on session where roughly half of the time will be spent introducing the material and half the time will be spent working through exercises to allow the participants to get a working knowledge of these tools.
