Featured research

SCION is the first clean-slate Internet architecture designed to provide route control, failure isolation, and explicit trust information for end-to-end communications. SCION organizes existing ASes into groups of independent routing sub-planes, called isolation domains, which then interconnect to form complete routes. As a result, the SCION architecture provides strong resilience and security properties as an intrinsic consequence of good design principles, avoiding piecemeal add-on protocols as security patches.
