Abstract

The Internet provides a global communication basis for businesses and communities. But in today’s Internet new demands collide with old design principles, resulting in a complex agglomerate of protocols and patches. These makeshift solutions are hard to manage, protect, and extend. The G-Lab DEEP project aims at these challenges with an innovative composition approach with a special emphasis on security. One goal is the dynamic composition of functions from network and service layer based on the requirements of applications. The composition is done by a mediation process that selects suitable function modules and can negotiate whether functions should be positioned on network or service layer. In G-Lab DEEP a prototype for such architecture will be developed.
