Abstract Existing models for Internet Autonomous System (AS) topology generation make structural assumptions about the AS graph. Those assumptions typically stem from beliefs about the true properties of the Internet, eg hierarchy and power-laws, which arise from incorrect interpretations of incomplete observations of the AS topology. In this paper we compare AS topology generation models with several observed AS topologies without making assumptions as to the relative importance of different topological characteristics. ...
