Authenticated Quality-of-Service Signaling for Virtual Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

While virtual networks have been subjected to detailed analysis, prototypes are usually constructed and instantiated manually or by means of dedicated control protocols that mostly neglect security considerations. As the instantiation and maintenance of virtual networks requires virtual network operators to gain access to existing network resources, a proper sender authentication builds an important aspect for control protocols. In this paper, the authors present a Virtual Link Setup Protocol (VLSP) that is designed as a modular extension to a standardized state-of-the-art signaling protocol suite.
