This talk describes one way to evolve IPv6 to support an Identifier/Locator network architecture in a backwards compatible way. This has benefits for the inter-domain routing table, site and node multi-homing, mobile networks, and mobile nodes. This research effort started several years ago and is well along now, so the presenter is also coding up a proof-of-concept implementation in FreeBSD in his (not very) copious spare time.

Short Bio: Ran Atkinson is currently Chief Scientist for switch/router vendor Extreme Networks. Prior to Extreme, he was in network engineering management for a multi-continent (Europe, North America, Australia, Japan) residential broadband ISP . He was the original IPv6 development team for Cisco IOS . He also led the NRL team with the world’s first implementations of IPv6 and IP Security (in 4.4 BSD ). He has been involved in Internet standards activities for about 20 years, initially working on internationalisation of electronic mail. He is probably best known as the original author of the IP Security protocols, ESP and AH, though he denies any knowledge of security. He has chaired several IETF Working Groups and served on the Internet Architecture Board from 1999 to 2003.

This current talk relates in part to his involvement in the IRTF Namespace Research Group from 1999 into this decade and his current involvement with the IRTF Routing Research Group.

This talk is part of the Computer Laboratory Systems Research Group Seminar series.
