Two challenges of software networking : name-based forwarding and table verification

Abstract : This thesis addresses two major aspects of the Internet evolution problem: a behavioral aspect, corresponding to a new type of interactions between users and the network, and a structural aspect, which refers to the evolution problem from an architectural point of view.The manuscript consists of an introductory chapter which outlines the research directions of this thesis, followed by a chapter on the description of the state of the art on the two aforementioned aspects.Among the solutions proposed by the scientific community to adapt to the evolution of the Internet, two new network paradigms are described: Information- Centric Networking (ICN) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN).The thesis continues with the description of "Caesar", a network device, inspired by ICN, capable of managing the distribution of content using forwarding primitives based on the content name and not a server address. Caesar is presented in two chapters describing the architecture of two main modules: theforwarding module, and the pending request management.The second part of the manuscript describes a mathematical tool for the effective loop detection in an SDN network from a theoretical point of view. Some algorithms are proposed and the improvements with respect ta the prior work are discussed.The thesis is concluded with a summary of the main results and a presentation of current and future work.
