RINA -Recursive InterNetwork Architecture-, developed by the Internet pioneer John Day in his book ‘Patterns in Network Architecture’, provides a general theory about networking. This theory clarifies what is really the layered structure of networking protocols: there is only a single type of layer, which is configurable, and this layer can be repeated as many times as required to optimally solve the network resource allocation problem. This model opens the door to multiple parallel Internets (not only the single, global, flat network that today’s Internet is), provides a structure that inherently supports multi-homing, mobility and multicast without the need for special protocols, is more secure, and allows distributed applications to use the network to communicate without having to know network internal details such as the addressing. In this project the network technologies cluster collaborates with the Irish research centre TSSG, the Boston University and the American startup TRIA Network Systems to develop the first RINA prototype.
