SCI-FI: Domain-Based Scalability, Control and Isolation for the Future Internet
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.
