The Vision of the Future • User expectations: • Future applications and platforms will be context-sensitive, adaptive, and personalized • They need to be run, in a reasonable and secure manner, on a variety of execution environments: anywhere, anyhow, anytime, by anyone • Required system properties: • self-aware, distributable, reconfigurable, proactive, collaborative, secure, trusted, privacy providing, mobile, diversely accessible, extendable, incrementally deployable, resource-aware, …
Research Challenges in Future Internet • Research Challenges: • Security-Trust-Privacy • Mobile Always-on Connectivity • Scalable Open Service Architectures • Solutions are sought in distributed algorithms and structures, middleware, and protocols.
Dual Approach to Future Internet • Improving current Internet • Protocol enhancements: HIP, TCP, DCCP, SIP, etc • Overlay networks • Secure push • Starting from clean table • Publish-subscribe paradigm • Applying microeconomics and game theory
