EECS500 Spring 2013 Department Seminar

Michael Rabinovich
Internet with Transient Destination-Controlled Addressing
White Bldg., Room 411
11:30am - 12:30pm
February 12, 2013

Today’s Internet makes hosts and individual networks inherently insecure because permanent addresses turn destinations into permanent attack targets.  In this talk, I will describe an Evasive Internet Protocol (EIP), a change to the data plane architecture of the Internet that would (a) prevent senders from forging their identities while preserving the current Internet
privacy paradigm, (b) give recipients full control over who can communicatewith them and for how long, and (c) require only modest change in the current Internet, thus allowing our approach to co-exist with and be incrementally deployed into the current Internet. We motivate
our approach, present the architectural design, and evaluate it through trace-driven and synthetic simulations as well as prototype testing.
