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)
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)
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)
—By tweaking the BGP configurations, the network operators are able to express their interdomain routing preferences , designed to accommodate a myriad goals. Given the complex interactions between policies in the Internet, the origin AS by itself cannot ensure that only by configuring a routing policy it can also achieve the anticipated results. Moreover,(More)
