DataPlane.org is a community-powered Internet data, feeds, and measurement resource for operators, by operators. We provide reliable and trustworthy service at no cost.
DataPlane.org is an independent, part-time project led by John Kristoff. John has reasonably decent Internet operational community experience. You may have seen John associated with or involved in any number of organizations and projects over the years, some of which include: DePaul University, DNS-OARC, Dragon Research Group (DRG), ICANN, IETF, FIRST.org, NANOG, Neustar (formerly UltraDNS), Northwestern University, nsp-security, ops-trust, REN-ISAC, Team Cymru, and University of Illinois at Chicago.
A number of project, tools, and organizations incorporate DataPlane.org feeds into their solutions. Without making any implicit or explicit recommendation for those listed or excluded, we know the following utilize DataPlane.org feeds: Abuse Helper, Blackhole Router Site, Brandefense, Collective Intelligence Framework, CUJO AI, FireHOL, IntelMQ, Maltrail, MISP, Prophetic AI, Recorded Future, RiskIQ, Team Cymru, and ThreatSTOP.
Technically DataPlane.org feeds are not block lists, but rather informational reports. However some may choose to use the insight to actively protect their networks and systems. Instead of manually verifying and removing entries from a feed, they are automatically purged if the activity does not reoccur. As of this writing feeds include events seen within just the past seven days.
Make good use of DataPlane.org resources then spread the word. Suggest enhancements, features or new ideas that might be at home at DataPlane.org. Make a donation. DataPlane.org runs a large number of distributed systems, most of which cost money and/or time to maintain. We can also use hosting (dedicated servers or KVMs are preferred, but beggars can't be choosers). Thank you!
