Paper Abstract

Active networks allows users to inject customized programs into the nodes of the network. In this paper, we describe our vision of an active network architecture, outline our approach to its design, and survey the technologies that can be brought to bear on its implementation. In the course of this presentation we identify a number of research questions to be addressed and propose that the research community mount a joint effort to develop and deploy a wide area ActiveNet.
