Operators and researchers want accurate router-level views
of the Internet for purposes including troubleshooting and
modeling. However, tools such as traceroute return IP ad-
dresses. Because routers may have dozens of IP addresses,
or aliases, multiple measurements may return different ad-
dresses, obscuring whether they represent the same machine.
While many techniques exist to address this issue by identi-
fying some IP aliases, these techniques, even in combination,
find only a subset of alias pairs.
