A survey on securing inter-domain routing: Part 1 by Geoff Huston

The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the Internet’s inter-domain routing protocol. And after some thirty years of operation, it’s now one of the more venerable of the Internet’s ‘core’ protocols. One of the major ongoing concerns related to BGP is its lack of effective security measures, and as a result, the routing infrastructure of the Internet continues to be vulnerable to various forms of attack. In Part 1 of this study, I will look at the design of BGP, the threat model and the requirements from a security framework for BGP.

专访融云杨攀:音视频技术的下半场,在于开发者服务生态 [Interview with Rongyun Yang Pan: The second half of audio and video technology lies in the developer service ecosystem]

... 为了顺应时势,今年1月,W3C 和 IETF 制定颁布了 WebRTC 标准,这是一个里程碑性的事件。WebRTC是线上通信及协作服务的基石,WebRTC标准正式发布之前,各个厂商有几种做法:一种是用私有的方案和协议,另一种是遵循这个标准来做。还有一种中间状态,就是基于WebRTC标准,再加上自己的一些技术方案进行一些定制,但一些修改并不跟官方的标准兼容。有了统一的标准之后,利于音视频能力的普及,更有望实现自由地在互联网上进行实时音视频传输。

Adventures in open DNS resolution: How to use threat intelligence for the public good

Role of the Internet of Things for Early Detection of Covid-19 Infections: a Comprehensive Survey

Abstract: The revolution of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies has changed the healthcare system by assimilating the various technological, social and economical aspects. It emits the healthcare system from conventional to the more customized system. In the current global COVID-19 pandemic circumstance IoT play a crucial function to combat corona virus infections. The early diagnose of COVID-19 is very necessary in order to prevent the disease from spreading globally. In this paper we survey the significant role of IoT-based technologies along-with some associative advanced technologies to early detect the COVID-19 infections. We review the sate-of-the art architecture and applications to combat COVID-19 infections and propose an IoT-based framework which helps to early detect and monitoring the COVID-19 infections.

Email Recommendation System-Abstract: Deployment Considerations (Part III) by Fred Tabsharani

Perhaps, one of the most thrilling moments of any machine learning project for a data science team is learning that they get to deploy the model in a production environment. However, this can be a daunting task or a simplified one, if all the tools are readily available. Machine-learning (ML) models "require" deployment to a production environment to deliver optimal business value, and the reality is that most models never make it to production.

Protecting online consumers during the COVID-19 crisis

... As demand for online services and access to communication services has soared, reliable and affordable broadband services have become crucial. Some communication operators have experienced up to a 60% increase in Internet traffic since the crisis began. Although many such operators and content providers have managed to deal with increased traffic, some content providers such as Netflix and YouTube have reduced streaming quality.
