Network Neutrality versus Internet Trustworthiness?

IEEE Security & Privacy, 2008

Network Neutrality requirements are being proposed to promote investment and innovation for the Internet. However, these requirements will likely affect the Internet's trustworthiness too, and there is little discussion about this. Trustworthiness experts must start contributing to the debate their expertise about how to build systems that resist attack and failure.

  • Emerging network technologies and network neutrality conformance

    The Network Neutrality principle states that, In order to preserve the openness of the Internet, Internet Service Providers (ISP) should be prohibited from blocking or differentiating between content from different application providers, and the end users should have equal access to all legal content on the Internet. The Network Neutrality issue is critical as it can have a considerable impact on the future Internet design principles and associated laws and policies. In this paper, we discuss some of the challenges in monitoring Network Neutrality conformance, focusing on the content provider discrimination. In addition we discuss the emerging network technologies such as Giga-LTE, LTE in Unlicensed spectrum (LTE-U) or Licensed Assisted Access (LAA), LTE Broadcast, LTE Wi-Fi Aggregation (LWA), MulteFire, etc., and discuss how they may affect Network Neutrality.

  • ISPANN: A Policy-Based ISP Auditor for Network Neutrality Violation Detection

    Network Neutrality is a controversial and full of ambiguity topic. Several works measure network features in the end-user vantage point to detect traffic differentiations, which are judged as Network Neutrality violations. However, these works neglected that each country has their own Network Neutrality rules. Some countries consider specific cases of traffic differentiations as Network Neutrality violations, and are not as general as previous works believed. In this work we consider violations directly from governments legislators Network Neutrality rules. In this sense, we propose ISPANN, a system which takes as input countries' Network Neutrality rules and audits an ISP network, identifying Network Neutrality violations. No other work proposes Network Neutrality violation detection in the ISP operator vantage point, to the best of our knowledge. We conducted an evaluation that assumes an SDN based ISP network to verify Network Neutrality violations based on OpenFlow switches flow tables and network's informations.

  • Detecting network neutrality violations through packet loss statistics

    Network Neutrality states that users should have equal access to all Internet content and that Internet Service Providers (ISP) should not unfairly block or degrade access to any site. The Network Neutrality controversy has been in the spotlight for several years due to political, economic, social, and technical implications. While proponents argue that enforcing Network Neutrality by law is important to preserve the openness of the Internet and boost innovation, the opponents counter this argument by stating that such rules provide disincentives for the ISPs to invest in their network. Among the various issues related to Network Neutrality, we focus on the issue of detecting whether or not an ISP is Network Neutral (or Content Provider neutral). We propose a methodology for monitoring ISPs to ensure compliance. We monitor the packet loss statistics and determine if the rate adaptation in case of streaming media is being influenced by throttling at the ISP, and support our proposal through simulations.

  • A Novel Framework for Analysis of Global Network Neutrality Based on Packet Loss Rate

    Network neutrality is a policy made by the government. It emphasizes that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) should treat all users equally, regardless of users' behavior, as long as they are legal. In this sense, it aims to build a fair and healthy network. Packet Loss Rate (PLR) is an important metric to evaluate a network's condition. In this paper, we compare PLR of two different kinds of tests, which are "speedtest" and "bittorrent", to judge network neutrality of ISPs. The difference of PLR of two tests is used to evaluate the level of network neutrality violations. We propose a general framework for analysis of network neutrality. First, by transforming the well-known Mathis model, we build a model that uses public data, collected by the network neutrality bot (Neubot), to estimate the PLR of countries all over the world. Second, a composite function model, named PECF, is proposed for fitting to get the lower limit of PLR (L-PLR). When the value of PLR is L-PLR, the frequencies of PLR of two tests differ most and a network neutrality violation appears. By mathematical inference, we draw the conclusion that ISPs violate network neutrality when PLR is larger than 0.10. Third, based on this conclusion, we concentrate on the case when PLR is larger than 0.10 to study network neutrality violations. We use R-PLR (Ranged PLR) to describe PLR within a certain range. By comparing the PLR of "speedtest" with that of "bittorrent" within a certain R-PLR, we further determine the level of network neutrality violation in time and space. Network neutrality violation is more likely to happen under network peaks. The geographical distribution of PLR shows China (CN) and South Africa (ZA) suffer the most severe network neutrality violations among the eight regions studied. Finally, we present the histogram of PLR worldwide from year 2012 to 2015, which shows a relationship between network development and user demand.

  • Network Neutrality in the US

    This paper introduces the Network Neutrality debate in the US, followed by a description of the FCC's efforts from the four "Internet freedom" principles in 2004 to three rules in 2010. These new rules are analyzed and an outlook is provided.

  • Disruptive network applications and their impact on network neutrality

    Network Neutrality principle states that in order to preserve the openness of the Internet, the end users should have equal access to all the content on the Internet, and the Internet Service Providers (ISP) should be prohibited from discriminating or blocking the content from any of the application providers. The Network Neutrality issue is important as it can have a considerable impact on the future Internet design principles and associated laws and policies. While the supporters of Network Neutrality, including the users and content providers, argue that non-blocking and non-discrimination should be prohibited by law, the opponents, including the ISPs, claim that such rules can prove to be a disincentive for them to invest in the network upgrades. In this paper, we provide a brief review of the Net Neutrality policies, focusing on the content provider discrimination. In addition we discuss some of the latest disruptive network applications being used in the Internet, such as zero rating apps, Over-the-Top applications, etc., and their impact on the Network Neutrality.

  • Can HAKOMetar be used to increase transparency in the context of network neutrality?

    HAKOM, the Croatian national regulatory authority has been following the issues of network neutrality and Internet openness since the beginning of 2010. In January 2011, HAKOM held a public consultation on the situation with the network neutrality on the Croatian market. Based on the results of the public consultations and the subsequent continuous monitoring of the situation on the domestic market, the strategy has been centred around the applicability of the increased transparency towards end users combined with the sufficient level of competition on the market. BEREC, the European association of the European national regulators, issued a guideline on transparency in the context of network neutrality. In this paper the situation on the Croatian market is analysed through the criteria defined in the guidelines. Special focus is placed on the implementation of the guidelines by means of the Ordinance on Manner and Conditions for the Provision of Electronic Communications Networks and Services. The ordinance introduces the software based tool HAKOMETAR to be used by the users of the Internet access service to measure the quality of their service. Statistical data on the usage of the tool is presented. The conclusion based on the analysis of the situation on the Croatian market supported by the results of the statistical data leads further to a recommendation for the regulation strategy.

  • An Essay on Network Neutrality and Consequences

    Network Neutrality has different meanings in different countries. But the discussion about the subject is always seeking for the same solution. Because many countries have different regulation for Service providers and Content providers, it is hard to find only one meaning for Neutrality. In another hand, end users need to have the same understanding with respect to the functions and roles of each other in a global or local view. The discussion should not be conducted only bipolar way of access service providers and content. Another important point is to verify that all interpretations are truly independent. The continuity of the Internet service should also be discussed economically, but while analyzing the technical point of view. The definitions and terminologies should also follow more technical, but not be based only on current technologies, disregarding the evolution. Network Neutrality can not mean the service at no cost, because in the end this could mean the end of the Internet and its growth. In this work we will analyze South American Network Neutrality.

  • Network neutrality from an innovation research perspective

    In this article, arguments concerning innovation activities and innovation effects in the context of the network neutrality debate will be described and analysed. It will be shown that from an innovation research point of view, there is no single most important argument in favour or against network neutrality laws. This may be disappointing to a certain extent because everyone is looking for an argument that could definitely decide on the matter. However, in a convergent world, applications and networks increasingly depend on each other. Thus, a counting up of innovation effects of either area is not a suitable method to identify which one shall be privileged in the context of network neutrality regulation. Taking into account a convergence model of innovation it will be concluded that regulators shall not follow the simple logic of counting up innovation effects but that they have to strike a specific balance between restricting monopolistic tendencies of both network providers and big Internet firms, and safeguarding a field for experimentation with new technologies and applications.
