Since the ARPAnet, network designers have built localized mechanisms for statistical multiplexing, load balancing, and failure resilience, often without understanding the broader implications. These mechanisms are all types of resource pooling whichmeans making a collection of resources behave like a single pooled resource. We believe that the natural(More)
—An important requirement for Internet protocol (IP) networks to achieve the aim of ubiquitous connectivity is network mobility (NEMO). With NEMO support we can provide Internet access from mobile platforms, such as public transportation vehicles , to normal nodes that do not need to implement any special mobility protocol. The NEMO basic support protocol(More)
In this note, we propose a security mechanism for protecting IPv6 networks from possible abuses caused by the malicious usage of a multihoming protocol. In the presented approach, each multihomed node is assigned multiple prefixes from its upstream providers, and it creates the interface identifier part of its addresses by incorporating a cryptographic(More)
The Network Mobility (NEMO) Basic Support protocol enables mobile networks to change their point of attachment to the Internet, while preserving established sessions of the nodes within the mobile network. When only a non-nested mobile network is considered, the so-called triangle routing is the main problem that should be faced. In Mobile IPv6, the Route(More)
There is ongoing work on the IETF aimed to provide support for different flavors of multihoming configurations, such as SHIM6 for multihomed sites, multiple CoAs support in MIP for multihomed mobile nodes and HIP for multihomed nodes and sites. A critical aspect for all the resulting multihoming protocols is to detect failures and gain information related(More)
