North Korean Internet outages observed

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014 by Alberto Dainotti

As reported by Dyn Research, North Korea has experienced extremely unstable Internet connectivity in the last few days. We offer a near real-time (30-minute delayed) view of the BGP-visibility of the 4 IPv4 prefixes announced by STAR-KP, Ryugyong-dong (North Korea’s national telecommunications provider). This real-time view represents a sneak peek of the intended outcomes of our Internet outage detection and analysis project.
