The ITHITOOLS program include a set of tools designed to compute some of "Identifier Technology Health Indicators" (ITHI) metrics defined by ICANN. The identifiers include Names, Numbers, and Protocol Parameters. A general presentation of the ITHI work is available here. The capture part of the tools are focused on a subset of the ITHI problem, specifically the computation of the IHTI metrics M3, M4, M6 and M7:

  • overhead in root traffic (M3.1, and M3.2 for duplicate requests contained in single PCAP file)
  • leakage of RFC6761 names and other undelegated names (M4)
  • usage of DNS protocol parameters defined in IANA registries (M6) plus list of unregistered parameters and frequencies
  • statisti on DNSSEC usage (M7)

The metric part of the tools reads data from the ITHI input folders, and produces the ITHI metrics.
