Today, most IP networks are still configured manually on a router-by-router basis. This is error-prone and often leads to misconfiguration. In this paper, we describe the Network Configuration Safeguard (NCGuard), a tool that allows the network architect to apply a safer methodology. The first step is to define his design rules. Based on a survey of the networking literature, we classify the most common types of rules in three main patterns: presence, uniqueness and symmetry and provide several… CONTINUE READING
