URL: A Layered Naming Architecture for the Internet

Entry Date: 14 Sept 2005

Abstract:

Currently the Internet has only one level of name
resolution, DNS, which converts user-level domain names into IP
addresses. In this paper we borrow liberally from the literature to
argue that there should be three levels of name resolution: from
user-level descriptors to service identifiers; from service
identifiers to endpoint identifiers; and from endpoint identifiers to
IP addresses. These additional levels of naming and resolution (1)
allow services and data to be first class Internet objects (in that
they can be directly and persistently named), (2) seamlessly
accommodate mobility and multihoming and (3) integrate middleboxes
(such as NATs and firewalls) into the Internet architecture. We
further argue that flat names are a natural choice for the service and
endpoint identifiers. Hence, this architecture requires scalable
resolution of flat names, a capability that distributed hash tables
(DHTs) can provide.

Abstract:

"This paper presents quantitative data about SMTP traffic to
MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL)
based on packet traces taken in December 2000 and February 2004.
These traces show that the volume of email has increased by 866%

Entry Date: 11 Aug 2005

Abstract:

"Name services are critical for mapping logical resource
names to physical resources in large-scale distributed systems. The
Domain Name System (DNS) used on the Internet, however, is slow,
vulnerable to denial of service attacks, and does not support fast

Entry Date: 25 Jun 2005

Abstract:

"We present the initial results from our evaluation study on
the performance implications of anycast in DNS, using four anycast
servers deployed at top-level DNS zones. Our results show that 15% to
55% of the queries sent to an anycast group, are answered by the
topologically closest server and at least 10% of the queries
