Project of Joint Research on IPv6 Network Management: Research Development and Demonstration

Task 1.Collaborative Management Architecture Model for lPv6 Cyberspace (Task Pl: Jessie Hui Wang, Tsinghua University)

The communication in the lnternet can transit across multiple ASes and these ASes are autonomous and independently
operated by different ISPs. Therefore, we must have a way to enable the collaboration among ASes to solve the end-to-end
management and security problems in the Internet.

In this task, we are going to develop an architecture mode to resolve the conflict between network autonomy and the need
for inter-domain management and measurement collaboration. Guided by the concept of “governing the lnternet by an
Internet of governance”, our team aims to provide a solution for establishing a global management network and attracting all
relevant parties to join this open and interconnected platform. The global manacement network is in fact an overlay network
on the lnternet, which is specially designed for the sharing of measurement results and measurement infrastructure among
participants. Particularly, the team would conduct research on the following problems.

  • 1.Propose a network architecture model to interconnect the measurement and management infrastructure of participants, so they can collaboratively solve some pre-defined cross-domain measurement or management problems automatically
    and responsively.
  • 2.Propose an incentive mechanism as a part of the architecure model to encourage various parties to join in the platform.
  • 3.Propose a mechanism to build a reputation database based on the data from all participants and other sources.
  • 4.Ensure that the sharing of measurement results and measurement infrasture does not violate the privacy and
    security policies of each participant.

Task 2.Active Measurement of lPv6 Network with Massive Address Space (Task Pl: Xiaohong Huang, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications – China)

Breakthrough massive Pv6 address space scanning technology, and propose lPv6 active measurement technologies for
IPv6 network digital asset management, topology discovery, performance and security measurement.

Task 3. Passive Measurement of High-speed IPv6 Network (Task Pl: Gaopeng Gou, The lnstitute of Information Engineering, CAS – China)

Based on heterogeneous divided-flow processing technology, a 100Gbps high-performance lP6 network traffic processing
platform will be proposed. Traffic processing will be divided into basic data layer, behavior layer, knowledge layer and
decision layer to solve the contradiction of low overhead of traffic processing and high complexity of traffic identification.

Task 4. IPv6 International lnter – Network Threat Tracing (Task Pl: Zhen Li, The lnstitute of
Information Engineering, CAS – China)

We will propose an inter-network threat tracing technology based on the combination of network behavior records and
controllable traceability technology based on source address verification, to achieve cross-border and cross-domain threat

Task 5. New Rules for lnternational Cooperative Governance on lPv6 Cyberspace (Task Pl: Han Liu,

The research wil be conducted from two aspects, i.e, cooperative sharing and flexible governance. On one hand, sovereign
mode and governance structure will be investigated to achieve cooperative sharinq. On the other hand, flexible governance
based on credit is studied, including general idea, the characterization of credit, and the remedy clauses.

Task 6. Demonstration of IPv6 Cyberspace Collaborative Management (Task Pl: Changqing An,

Based on the research results of Tasks 2-5, the project partners will organize a “Demonstration of lPv6 Cyberspace
Collaborative Management” and outline the lPv6 cyberspace governance rules from a technical perspective. The
demonstration will illustrate and validate the key technologies devices, systems and governance rules proposed in this
