Security Analysis of Future Internet Architectures
MetadataShow full item record
During the last decades, Internet has evolved from host-centric toinformation-centric in the sense that it is information and data what matters,regardless of where it is located. Meanwhile, Internet's architecturestill remains the same as it was in its origins and still focuses on host-tohostcommunication, putting too much emphasis on the "where" ratherthan putting it on the "what".Original Internet's architecture also introduces several security aws suchas DoS and DDoS, spoong and spam, and other non-security relatedproblems such as availability or location dependence related issues. Inorder to address these issues, several new architectures and protocols havebeen proposed. Some of them aim at redesigning totally the architecture ofInternet from scratch, while others aim at improving it without redesigningit totally.The aim of this Master Thesis is to analyze these new protocols and architecturesfrom a security point of view in order to determine whether thesecurity claims made are true or not. The security analysis is made basedon RFCs, technical papers and project deliverables. The results obtainedhave uncovered some security issues in several of the new protocols andarchitectures and have provided some insight into further improving them.
