This paper is to make enterprise network more manageable, secure and thereby reducing complexities without adding a new layer of protocols, applications and scripts to the existing network. This goal is achieved by proposing new network architecture for Enterprise known as Ethane. Ethane is built on the principle that, the only way to manage and secure networks is to identify the origin of all packets, and hold the user (or machine) accountable for it. So first, using Ethane all users, hosts and switches used in the network are well authenticated and tracking is performed in intervals. All packets are identified with their sender or origin. Secondly, Ethane implements a network-wide policy language in terms of users, machines and services.
