Welcome to LOBSTER!

LOBSTER was a pilot European infrastructure for accurate Internet traffic monitoring. Based on passive monitoring, and capitalising on previous experience, the LOBSTER infrastructure was unique in Europe and one of only three similar infrastructures that existed in the world.

It therefore made a significant contribution to "IST 2.3.5 Research Networking testbeds" whose objective was "to integrate and validate ... state-of-the-art technology that is essential for preparing the future upgrades in the infrastructure deployed across Europe".

LOBSTER was a successor of the SCAMPI project.

The LOBSTER project concluded on 30 June 2007, but the sensor network remains operational, and the sensor software continues to be maintained.
