The eXpressive Internet Architecture defines a single network that offers inherent support for communication between multiple communicating principals--including hosts, content, and services--while accommodating unknown future entities. XIA also offers intrinsic security in which the integrity and authenticity of communication is guaranteed. In this talk I will give an overview of the XIA architecture and describe how it addresses the evolvability and trustworthiness challenges. I will also introduce the XIA prototype and talk about some initial applications.
Peter Steenkiste is a Professor of Computer Science and of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
