Yaping Zhu will present her research seminar/general exam on Wednesday May 
16 at 10AM in Room 402.  The members of her committee are Jennifer 
Rexford (advisor), Larry Peterson, and Vivek Pai.  Everyone is invited to attend 
her talk, and those faculty members wishing to remain for the oral exam 
following are welcome to do so.  Her abstract and reading list follow below.

Conventional wisdom has held that routing protocols can not achieve both scalability and
high availability. Despite scaling rather well, today's Internet routing system does not
react quickly to changing network conditions. Overlay networks, on the other hand, can
respond quickly to changing network conditions, but their reliance on aggressive probing
does not scale to large topologies. This project presents a resilient layered routing
architecture called UFO (Underlay Friendly to Overlays), which achieves the best of both
worlds by providing router support for overlay routing mechanisms. UFO comprises two
changes to existing routers: (i) data-plane support for deflection packets at the behest
of the overlay and (ii) explicit notification about significant changes in network
conditions. We present these two mechanisms, and demonstrate how they facilitate the
scalable deployment of overlay routing mechanisms at the network layer. Prototype is
implemented based on PL-VINI platform, with preliminary evaluation results.
