We evaluate the rich-club property of the Internet topology at the autonomous system (AS) level by comparing the Internet AS graphs of traceroute and BGP, and the synthetic graphs of PFP model. The results indicate that, for rich-club coefficient, PFP model can exactly match traceroute AS graphs in the early years around 2002, but it has significantly deviated from the grown AS graphs since about 2010.
