Security Aspects of a Clean Slate Information Oriented Internet Architecture
Publish/Subscribe is a paradigm that continuously receives increasing attention by the research community, mainly due to its information oriented nature. The PSIRP (Publish-Subscribe Internet Routing Paradigm) project aims at developing and evaluating a clean slate architecture for the future Internet, based on this paradigm. Availability, security, and mobility, are considered as core elements in this new form of internetworking and they are not provided as add-ons. This paper highlights the security aspects of PSIRP presenting the security advantages inherited by the pub/sub paradigm as well as the innovating security mechanisms that have been introduced during this project.
