Executive Summary

Virtualization techniques are applied to improve features like isolation, security, mobility and dynamic reconfiguration in distributed systems. To introduce these advantages into the network where they are highly required, an interesting approach is to virtualize the internet routers themselves. This technique could enable several virtual networks of different types, owners and protocols to coexist inside one physical network. In this paper, the authors propose a model of a virtual router they have implemented with XEN and they evaluate its properties.
