A Flexible IP Active Networks Architecture
This paper presents the main concepts of the IST Project FAIN "Future Active IP Networks" [10], a three-year collaborative research project, whose main task is to develop and validate an open, flexible, programmable and dependable network architecture based on a novel active node approach. This generic architecture for active networks is an innovative integration of active networking, distributed object and mobile agent technology. Starting from the definition of a business model that underlines the FAIN architecture, we identify three key working areas for contribution: the active node platform layer, the service programming environment and a build-in management system. The active node platform layer of the FAIN Active Node is comprised of the kernel OS, a node resource access control framework, and active components for management, security and service provision. These elements provide the foundations on which Execution Environments are deployed and operate in an independe...
