Exploring the Web and Internet domain – the Internet dataset

The case study that we are going to deal with in this recipe is that of the Internet dataset created in July, 2006 by Mark Newman. This data is a symmetrized snapshot of the structure of the Internet at the level of autonomous systems, reconstructed from BGP tables posted by the University of Oregon Route Views Project. An autonomous system is a network or a group of networks controlled by a common administrative entity. Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is a standardized gateway protocol that is used for routing between autonomous systems on the Internet.
