Safe and Efficient Active Network Programming

  title={Safe and Efficient Active Network Programming},
  author={Scott Thibault and Charles Consel and Gilles Muller},
Active networks are aimed at incorporating programmability into the network to achieve extensibility. One approach to obtaining extensibility is to download router programs into network nodes. This programmability is critical to allow multipoint distributed systems to adapt to network conditions and individual clients’ needs. Although promising, this approach raises critical issues such as safety to achieve reliability despite the complexity of a distributed system, security to protect shared… CONTINUE READING
