Virtual Enterprise Networks: The Next Generation of Secure Enterprise Networking
We present a vision of computing environments in which enterprise networks are built using untrusted public infrastructures. The vision allows for networks to dynamically change depending on the need of their users, rather than forcing the users to build organizations around networks. ion is realized through a design abstraction called Virtual Enterprise Networking, or short Supernetworking. A first prototype of such a Supernet has been implemented on Linux. working introduces a new layer of abstraction in a layered model of computer networking. The Supernet layer sits directly above the network layer and includes its own addressing structure and security services which protect all data transmitted by the network layer. A key component of a Supernet is communications tunneling. Instead of the traditional two endpoints, our tunnels have as many endpoints as there are computers participating in a Supernet. While tunneling has been repeatedly used to implement infrastructure services su...
