SCION Tutorial at SIGCOMM 2020

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.
