Internet-Drafts are working documents of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), its areas, and its working groups. Note that other groups may also distribute working documents as Internet-Drafts. Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is(More)
In this paper we discuss key architecture and design considerations associated with the development of a control plane capable of dynamic provisioning in this heterogeneous multi-domain, multi-layer, multi-service hybrid network environment . We present a framework for addressing the heterogeneous nature of the hybrid networks via the development of a(More)
Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) mechanisms have an increasingly versatile role when performing access control on various types of network resources. Emerging data intensive grid applications generate new network requirements. These requirements call for (pre-) allocate-able data transport facilities serving specific user communities. The(More)
Port based network access control makes use of the physical access characteristics of IEEE 802 LAN infrastructures in order to provide a means of authenticating and authorizing devices attached to a LAN port that has point-to-point connection characteristics, and of preventing access to that port in cases where the authentication and authorization process(More)
In this paper, we address the problem of automated user-empowered control of dynamic network infrastructures. To do so, we have taken advantage of the advanced features of Internet2 Dynamic Circuit Networks (DCN) and the CoUniverse self-organizing application middleware. We modified CoUniverse to interface with DCN and automatically control the circuit(More)
