The Internet Measurement Handbook is an essential reference tool for anyone involved with any aspect of internet freedom and digital rights.

The handbook is logically organized, and begins by giving a brief overview of the need for network testing and the state of art in network instrumentation. It then continues on and covers basics such as measurement terminology, internet shutdown detection, social media throttling and deep packet inspection. Next, there are sections devoted to hardware-assisted probe technology and internet-scale remote measurement.

More advanced topics such as differential scans are also covered. The final chapters explain the practical measurement concerns including step-by-step guides for organisations, journalists and the general public.

The first edition of the Handbook was pre-released in May 2018 under a Creative Commons license and distributed at the Oslo Freedom Forum. It is currently being revised for public release.
