Executive Summary

Today's Internet is increasingly strained to meet the demands and requirements of these Internet services and their users, such as scalability to accommodate the increasing number of network components and host devices, high availability, robustness, mobility and security. As the universal "Glue" that pieces together various heterogeneous physical networks, the Internet Protocol (IP) suffers certain well-known shortcomings, e.g., the need for careful and extensive network configurations - in particular, the need for address management and configuration, inherently reactive approaches for handling network failures, relatively poor support for mobility, and so forth.
