VIRTUAL ACTIVE IP NODE FOR COLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENTS

Francisco Puentes, Víctor Carneiro

Abstract

The present document describes the VAIN architecture (Virtual Active IP Node), which enables users to deploy new network services based on virtual active networks, and how it solves the challenge of segmenting the incoming traffic that crosses nodes towards the services, conserving the original objective of independence of the protocol (Tennenhouse,1996). Our solution is based on using network expressions that use all the semantic contained in each incoming packet, which does not need to know the inner structure of the protocols. VAIN architecture has been development to response to challenges outlined by electronic commerce, specifically those regarding to collaborative environments and marketplaces. To achieve this objective we have considered the following goals: first, a three layer conceptualization; second, a transparent implantation and its integration with existing infrastructures; and third, a strategy of network traffic distribution based in all the information within the input packets, which is named “expressions based distribution”.
