D4.6A: Report on the third year network and application research activities

This document summarizes the results of the research and innovative tasks carried out during the third year and fourth year of Euro6IX project in the context of WP4 activities A4.1 (Advanced Network Services Design and Evaluation) and A4.2 (IPv6 Application Development). WP4 main aim is the design, consolidation and validation of an IPv6 based integrated end user service scenario, which integrates advanced network services and applications into a common framework.

This document summarizes the results of the research and innovative tasks carried out along the third and fourth years of Euro6IX project in the context of WP4 activities A4.1 (Advanced Network Services Design and Evaluation) and A4.2 (IPv6 Application Development).

WP4 main aim is the design, consolidation and validation of an IPv6 based integrated end user service scenario, which integrates advanced network services and applications into a common framework, which we call the 'Euro6IX Integrated Service Framework'. Therefore WP4 considers the integration of several advanced network services together with applications, which exploit the new features as one important goal.

Being this the last period of the project, the work has been mainly focused on the consolidation and final integration of results. All the effort has been gradually reoriented to the integration of all results in a final demonstration scenario. This scenario have been organized around the IX model being proposed in the project, showing how the advanced network services can be offered from and IX and how the applications can benefit from those services.

Work during this period has covered a wide variety of project objectives: The study and experimentation with the address delegation services provided by the advanced IPv6 IX Model, the deployment of multicast services based on SSM, the documentation of University Campus IPv6 transition cases, the development of tools to achieve Policy Provision, the deployment of QoS in the network, the development of new proposals to IETF in the field of transition and distributed security, the experimentation of new protocols to achieve secure authentication in IX and mobile environments, as well as the implementation of a host centric multi-homing solution. Besides, work has continued to consolidate the ongoing developments on the applications area.

The document is organized as follows. The next two subsections summarize the results obtained in the context of advanced network services and applications development activities. Later in Section 2 and 3, these results are described in more detail for each of the sub-activities planned for this period, showing the partners involved, the objectives, a brief description, the relevance for the project and the main results achieved so far, as well as the future activities planned till the end of the project.
