Prem Gopalan will present his research seminar/general exam on Wednesday
May 4 at 9:30 AM in Room 302. The members of his committee are: Mike
Freedman (advisor), Jen Rexford, and Margaret Martonosi. Everyone is
invited to attend his talk, and those faculty wishing to remain for the oral
exam following are welcome to do so. His abstract and reading list follow
Historically, Internet services provided clients with access to the
resources of a particular host. However, today's services are no
longer defined by a single host or confined to a fixed location. Yet,
the network architecture continues to impose a coupling between hosts
and services by binding connections to topology-dependent addresses,
rather than topology-independent service names -- complicating
everything from server replication, load balancing, and
virtual-machine migration, to client mobility and multi-homing. We
propose a new service access layer that redefines the interaction
between the network and transport layers. This layer provides the
"thin waist" needed to enable direct communication on service names,
decouple service connections from network identifiers, and enhance the
network's awareness of service availability.
In this talk, we focus on how to rearchitect today's end-host network
stack to include the service access layer while maintaining backwards
compatibility with today's IP networks and requiring minimal changes
to applications. We present the design of transport protocols running
in this framework, and evaluate our Linux implementation.
