RIPEstat Demo – s2e06
by Christian Teuschel and Vesna Manojlovic, RIPE NCC

RIPEstat is a RIPE NCC service that provides users with information on a specific Internet number resource (IP address, prefix or ASN) from a variety of data sources. The information is provided as visualisations which can be embedded on a website. Results are also available through a scriptable data API. The RIPEstat “toolbox” is developed in close cooperation with the RIPE community.

At this live demonstration we will reveal new features and report on ongoing development. This is a great opportunity for our users to share feedback directly with the developers and learn more about RIPEstat first-hand.

More information on RIPEstat.
