This paper presents the first Internet architecture designed for control and isolation. The authors of this paper propose to separate ASes into groups of independent routing sub-planes which then in-terconnect to form complete routes. The architecture, SCI-FI, provides superior resilience and security proper-ties as an intrinsic consequence of good design principles, without needing additional add-on protocols or external checks to provide resilience. The security analysis shows that SCI-FI can naturally prevent several long-standing security plagues to existing interdomain routing proto-cols even with their semantics perfectly secured.
