Current large-scale IPv6 studies mostly rely on non-public datasets, asmost public datasets are domain specific. For instance, traceroute-based datasetsare biased toward network equipment. In this paper, we present a new methodologyto collect IPv6 address datasets that does not require access to restrictednetwork vantage points. We collect a new dataset spanning more than 5.8 millionIPv6 addresses by exploiting DNS’ denial of existence semantics (NXDOMAIN).This paper documents our efforts in obtaining new datasets of allocated IPv6 addresses,so others can avoid the obstacles we encountered.
