About this Textbook

This book describes the essential components of the SCION secure Internet architecture, the first architecture designed foremost for strong security and high availability. Among its core features, SCION also provides route control, explicit trust information, multipath communication, scalable quality-of-service guarantees, and efficient forwarding. The book includes functional specifications of the network elements, communication protocols among these elements, data structures, and configuration files. In particular, the book offers a specification of a working prototype.

The authors provide a comprehensive description of the main design features for achieving a secure Internet architecture. They facilitate the reader throughout, structuring the book so that the technical detail gradually increases, and supporting the text with a glossary, an index, a list of abbreviations, answers to frequently asked questions, and special highlighting for examples and for sections that explain important research, engineering, and deployment features. The book is suitable for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students who are interested in network security.

Reviews

“This book summarizes many years, almost a decade, of research and development on SCION. The reader is brought up to speed with the current state of the Internet, the threat landscape vs. the underlying networking and routing protocols that were designed when the threat landscape was much different. … this is a great book for understanding where we are in today's Internet, and what we need to consider for moving forward.” (Sven Dietrich, Cipher, ieee-security.org, Issue 144, June, 04, 2018)

“The writing is precise and easy to comprehend for those who know the underlying principles. … This book must be included in the essential literature study for researchers formulating problems and comprehending trends related to redesigning the Internet. It is a well-suited reference book for a semester course, with lab work for advanced students of networking/data communication design. … This book does a fantastic job of presenting the SCION team’s decade-long work. For aspiring SCION collaborators, it is a treasure.” (Sundara Nagarajan, Computing Reviews, November, 2018)
