We performed end-to-end measurements of UDP/IP flows across an Internet backbone network. Using this data, we characterized the packet reordering processes seen in the network. Our results demonstrate the high prevalence of packet reordering relative to packet loss, and show a strong correlation between packet rate and reordering on the network we studied.(More)
Hash functions are among the most widespread cryptographic primitives, and are currently used in multiple cryptographic schemes and security protocols such as IPSec and SSL. In this paper, we compare and contrast hardware implementations of the newly proposed draft hash standard SHA-512, and the old standard, SHA-1. In our implementation based on Xilinx(More)
Emerging network applications tend to be built over heterogeneous network resources spanning multiple management domains. Many such applications have dynamic demands for dedicated, deterministic, high-bandwidth connections. The generalized multi-protocol label switching (GMPLS) networks under development can address these kinds of demands by using(More)
We present the design, and preliminary performance results, for a system that transports uncompressed HDTV content over IP networks. Our system is motivated by the growth in use of digital video, and the ever increasing capacity of localand wide-area Internet links. We aim to demonstrate the feasibility of IP as a transport for very high quality video, and(More)
Inter-domain path computation, or the ability to compute end-to-end paths across multiple domains, is the next step toward wide deployment of a distributed control plane with support for traffic engineering. A key enabler to achieve this goal is the introduction of a Path Computation Element (PCE) in each domain. There are various ways these elements can(More)
Rapid progress in deployment of national and regional optical network infrastructures holds the promise to provide abundant, inexpensive bandwidth to scientific communities. The expectation is that this will provide a catalyst for innovation across a range of eScience applications. However, there remains considerable architecture and research work in order(More)
