  1. 1. Creating Digital Twin Distributed Networks Using Switches With Programmable Data Plane

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Programvara och system

    Author : Rasmus Larsson; [2021]
    Keywords : P4; Programmable switches; SDN; Network Virtualisation; Ethernet VPN; VPN; BMv2;

    Abstract : The domain specific language P4 is a novel initiative which extends the Software-Defined Networking (SDN) paradigm by allowing for data plane programmability. Network virtualisation is a class of network technologies which can be used to abstract the addressing in a network, allowing multiple tenants to utilise the network resources while being agnostic to the underlying network and the other tenants.

  2. 2. Migration to P4-Programmable Switches and Implementation of the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Programvara och system

    Author : Henrik Lindström; [2020]
    Keywords : P4; Switch; Hybrid; SDN; Ethernet; Migration; RSTP; STP; Rapid; Spanning; Tree; BMv2;

    Abstract : P4 is a high-level language for programming the data plane of a network switch. These P4-programmable switches come with no pre-defined behavior or protocols, so it is entirely up to the loaded P4 program to define these. This allows the user to exclude any unwanted functionality and to create custom protocols. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Feasibility of Deploying Highly Resilient Data Plane Forwarding Mechanisms Using Programmable Switches

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Henrik Lindbøl Bjørseth; [2019]
    Keywords : Network Robustness; Connectivity; Data Plane; Programming Protocol- Independent Packet Processors P4 ; Data-Driven Connectivity DDC .;

    Abstract : Network downtime is costly for providers of information technology services. One cause of network downtime is link failures. The control plane of the network is the entity responsible for ensuring connectivity upon link failures. The data plane of the network forwards packets at line speed and it is controlled by the control plane. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards Machine Learning Inference in the Data Plane

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för matematik och datavetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Jonatan Langlet; [2019]
    Keywords : Machine learning Data Plane SmartNIC Artificial Neural Network Inference Flow Classification;

    Abstract : Recently, machine learning has been considered an important tool for various networkingrelated use cases such as intrusion detection, flow classification, etc. Traditionally, machinelearning based classification algorithms run on dedicated machines that are outside of thefast path, e.g. on Deep Packet Inspection boxes, etc. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aggregating Certificate Transparency Gossip Using Programmable Packet Processors

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för matematik och datavetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Rasmus Dahlberg; [2018]
    Keywords : Certificate Transparency; CT; Gossip; P4;

    Abstract : Certificate Transparency (CT) logs are append-only tamper-evident data structures that can be verified by anyone. For example, it is possible to challenge a log to prove certificate inclusion (membership) and log consistency (append-only, no tampering) based on partial information. READ MORE
