Protecting the infrastructure ­ panel on routing
Session description
The goal of this session is to explore security in a next-generation Internet architecture, in
the context of secure routing. The session will consider the threats on the routing system
and consider several architectural proposals as alternatives to today's architecture. The
hope is to encourage discussion of the role the routing system should play in ensuring the
future Internet is secure.
Jennifer Rexford 5 min Introduction and open questions  [slides]
Morley Mao 15 min Threats & lessons learned from today's control/management planes [slides]
Jennifer Rexford 10 min Multipath routing and secure availability monitoring [slides]

Economics and its applicability to FIND research

Session description
The goal of this session is to explore how the computer science research community
might better make use of and engage economics research (and perhaps other
multidisciplinary research) in designing the NextGen Internet. The hope is to discern
opportunities for expanded communication and multidisciplinary research sharing that
will enhance FIND research goals.
