Abstract

One of the most familiar Web proxy caches and firewalls are active networks, which you can add programs to or customize to particular applications. The active network differs from traditional architectures primarily in what it does not specify. The active network describes functional slots that must be instantiated to provide a particular service. These slots create a new degree of freedom in network architectures, which in turn opens up the opportunity to speed up network evolution and accommodate new network types, algorithms and applications.
