Title: NRG meeting: Unleashing network-layer evolution for Future Internet  
Architectures (Michel Machado)
Presenter: Michel Machado


As clean-slate designs of the Internet accumulate, IP’s inability to evolve  
its network layer is slowly becoming perceived as a straitjacket for  
innovation. However, two factors have been releasing this mounting pressure  
to date, namely: (1) the fact that most existing clean-slate designs are  
siloed and elevate a few network use cases above others, and (2) designers  
find it difficult to bring a new design into fruition and demonstrate its  
merits, given the lack of a suitable platform to do so.  Since the Internet  
brings together a myriad of stakeholders whose goals are not always  
aligned, replacing our Internet with a new design that does not benefit  
everyone is sure to find resistance.  Furthermore, the lack of a proper  
platform to develop these new designs sharply limits the designs that are  
tested and lend themselves to experimentation beyond the hands of their  
This thesis presents the eXpressive Internet Architecture (XIA), itself a  
clean-slate design. We argue that XIA’s highest goal should be to support  
evolution to the extent that other clean-slate projects can use XIA as a  
platform to implement, test, and deploy their designs.  At the same time,  
XIA-enabled networks will realize the benefit of enriching their  
infrastructure by aggregating these new designs together. We implement XIA  
in Linux as a native network stack, addressing issues pertinent to  
production deployment, and evaluate Linux XIA's performance against that of  
Linux's IP stack. Finally, due to the lack of a metric to quantify how  
evolvable XIA is, we bring Serval, a component of the Future Internet  
Architecture (FIA) Nebula project, to XIA, in order to showcase the  
implementation of an alien design and to evaluate its performance against  
its original IP-based implementation.
