Independent Directed Acyclic Graphs for Resilient Multipath Routing

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In order to achieve resilient multipath routing the authors introduce the concept of Independent Directed Acyclic Graphs (IDAGs) in this paper. Link-independent (Node-independent) DAGs satisfy the property that any path from a source to the root on one DAG is link-disjoint (node-disjoint) with any path from the source to the root on the other DAG. Given a network, they develop polynomial time algorithms to compute link-independent and node-independent DAGs. The algorithm developed in this paper: provides multipath routing; utilizes all possible edges; guarantees recovery from single link failure; and achieves all these with at most one bit per packet as overhead when routing is based on destination address and incoming edge.
