RESUMENET (Resilience and Survivability for future networking: framework, mechanisms, and experimental evaluation is to host original research work that will systematically embed resilience into future Internet. The project work has three main

  • At framework-level, work will elaborate on the D2R2+DR (Defend, Detect, Remediate, Restore; Diagnose, Refine) framework, and quantify the impact of different types of challenges and failures on normal network service operation. Metrics, classes of network resilience, policies and ways to negotiate them are at the epicenter. The outcome of this should ease the understanding of network engineers about of resilient network services.
  • The project will then look into the mechanisms and algorithms to add to the network infrastructure so that the requirements identified at the framework level be met. The network infrastructure, both the end-to-end transport infrastructure and the service layer, including servers and data storage equipment, are the subject of work. The focus is on basic functions and technologies that constitute the building blocks of the D2R2+DR framework; nevertheless, some study cases (scenarios) of network service failure are considered, in order to exemplify the synthesis of these blocks into a working system.
  • Finally, experimentation is starring at the project, both in terms of resource consumption and significance to the project objectives.Specific scenarios focusing on particular network service provision are composed out of failure types, and resilience mechanisms. The aim is to demonstrate the applicability of the systematic approach unfolding, and the benefits for several aspects of the network functionality. An equally important task  will be to provide feedback about the fine tuning of individual mechanisms in the network. The experimentation facilities will come from in-house test beds and facilities developed by the project.
