[atlas] Probe IPs are public?

Hello, I was under impression RIPE tries to somewhat anonymize probe information that's displayed publicly, e.g. only showing the probe IP address information down to the subnet or AS level on the maps, providing the option to use "Obfuscated DNS entry", etc. But on the public stats pages e.g. here: https://stat.ripe.net/widget/atlas-probes#w.resource=DE (+ "switch to table view") I am able to see both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses of many or most probes without even having to log-in; is that intended? Also what is the point of choosing to use the Obfuscated DNS option if the probe IPs are available in the clear anyway. -- With respect, Roman -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
