An Internet topology map at the router level not only needs to discover IP addresses in Internet paths (traceroute) but also needs to identify IP addresses belonging to the same router (IP aliases). Both processes, discovery and IP alias resolution, have traditionally been independent tasks. In this paper, a new tool called Pamplona-traceroute is proposed to improve upon current results in a state of the art for Internet topology construction at the router level. Indirect probing using
