At this year’s SIGCOMM conference, the flagship annual conference of the ACM Special Interest Group on Data Communication, Prof. Adrian Perrig, Dr. Markus Legner, and Juan A. García-Pardo from the Network Security Group and Prof. David Hausheer from the Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg hosted a tutorial on the next-generation Internet architecture SCION.
Participants learned about revolutionary properties and concepts of SCION, such as path-aware networking, isolation domains, and flexible control-plane public-key infrastructures, and were able to explore the architecture in a hands-on session through the SCIONLab testbed.
Both the tasks for the hands-on session and the videos are publicly available:
The tutorial was well-received and attendees were excited to hear about the possibilities and benefits that a new Internet architecture can offer.
This was the most useful tutorial session of SIGCOMM.
It was a great tutorial from a beginner perspective. We learned a lot of concepts and specifically people who are very new to SCION can learn how exactly it is different from BPG.
