Paper on experimental evaluation of RINA prototype @ Globecom 2014
We’re happy to announce that the paper entitled “Experimental Evaluation of a Recursive InterNetwork Architecture prototype” will be presented at the IEEE Globecom 2014 conference. The paper will be presented during the “NGN I-1: Forwarding Design and Next Generation Network Management” session, from Thursday, December 11, 2014 14:00 until 15:45.
The Recursive InterNetwork Architecture (RINA) is a recently proposed network architecture based on first principles, which promises to solve a number of issues present in the current Internet such as the lack of inherent security. In this paper, we present the experimental evaluation of the first performance-oriented implementation of RINA, the IRATI stack. Our open source stack is designed for GNU/Linux Operating Systems, with key components developed in kernel space for optimal performance. After briefly introducing the architecture, we present the main features of the stack, give some details about the implementation and discuss some trade-offs that had to be taken into account. We present use case scenarios for the evaluation, which were implemented in a test environment, and present the performance, achieving a goodput close to line rate on a GbE link, even when multiple Distributed Inter Process Communication Facilities (DIFs) are stacked.
