To provide Internet services, IIJ operates some of the largest network and server infrastructure in Japan. Here, we examine and discuss current Internet trends based on information obtained through the operation of this infrastructure.
While the Internet is now used to provide a range of useful services, it is also increasingly being used maliciously. In this issue, we present our attempt to use deep learning to prevent cyberattacks.
The IIJ Innovation Institute is engaged in research that helps to improve the resiliency of the global Internet through measurement and analysis. In this chapter, we report on research that aims to improve resiliency by understanding the submarine cables that underpin the Internet. This is a summary of a paper presented at ACM HotNets 2018(*).
