Abstract
The invention relates to discovering and clustering Internet protocol addresses. For example, the invention can include discovering an IPv6 address of an Internet-facing device on a network, where the IPv6 address is associated with a wide area network (WAN) media access control (M AC) address and a WiFi basic service set identifier (BSSID), identifying an associated BSSID in WiFi geolocation databases based on the WAN and WiFi BSSID, and geolocating the Internet facing device by retrieving a location record in the WIFI geolocation databases for the associated BSSID.
